OPINION

Budget adjustments
By James Gaskin

Whatever your final budget number for 2007, prepare to slice that
number. Continued weakness in the residential housing market
(construction spending was down for the seventh month in a row in
October), a slowdown in US manufacturing, and warnings about flat
retail sales from WalMart and others means your budget will probably
get cut next spring.
