Wall Street Roundup: More Fed doubting. Is that Jon Stewart?

November 5, 2010 |  7:27 am

New jobs aren't enough. 151,000 new jobs were created in October, according to new Labor Department figures, but it was not enough to move the national unemployment rate, or the markets.

More Fed doubting. Despite the market's excitement about the Federal Reserve's stimulus plan, former Fed chief Paul Volcker said the plan would provide little substantive help for the economy, while Germany's top banker said that U.S. policy was "clueless."

Good news for MBAs. The number of business school students finding work is going up, although signing bonuses are not, according to a BusinessWeek survey.

Is that Jon Stewart? Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's calender reveals that comedian Jon Stewart was in for a personal meeting in April.
