Surprise upswing in productivity
NEW YORK (CNN) -- Analysts are still trying to explain the surprise upswing in US productivity that began on Monday, August 5. "Maybe people are just working harder, or longer hours. Who knows?" says Wall Street financier Michael D. Xavier. "By the way, I put 20 inch wheels on my Acura last week. Wanna do an interview on that? I'd really like to show it to someone -- anyone!" No one seems to know the cause of the upswing, or how long it will last.
Some analysts say it appears the upswing is already showing signs of cooling off today. Xavier was unavailable for further comment.
