Is Columbus Day Sailing Off the Calendar? — (See Corrections & Amplifications below.) Arrivederci, Columbus Day. The tradition of honoring Christopher Columbus for sailing the ocean blue in 1492 is facing rougher seas than the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria. Philadelphia's annual Columbus Day parade has been canceled.

George Akerlof (aka Mr. Janet Yellen) Heads to Georgetown — George Akerlof has a new job. The Nobel laureate, also known as Mr. Janet Yellen, is heading to Georgetown University in November. The university said Mr. Akerlof, who has been a senior resident scholar at the International Monetary Fund, will join Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy and teach on topics including "when and how economics should be applied to public policy."

Live Blog: Follow the Federal Reserve Decision and Janet Yellen’s Press Conference — This will be the Fed's 15 th press conference since Ben Bernanke started this post-FOMC ritual three and a half years ago. If Yellen doesn't like it, she has only herself to blame. The press conferences grew out of a committee she led as Fed vice chair to overhaul the central bank's communications strategy.

How Washington Would Respond to an Economic Jolt From Overseas Tensions — What could go wrong? U.S. economic policy makers have that question on their minds these days as escalating tensions in the Middle East and Eastern Europe threaten to restrain a mounting U.S. recovery.

White House’s Technology Push a Double-Edged Sword for Low-Wage Workers — The White House's annual Economic Report of the President pushes a raft of proposals designed to make the U.S. economy stronger and more productive in the long run. Some of them run the risk of making a subset of U.S. workers, who have been front and center for the White House lately, more vulnerable in the short run.

5 Questions Through the Eyes of White House Economists — Share Share The Economic Report of the President, compiled annually by the White House's Council of Economic Advisers, offers a mix of uplifting messages about the U.S. economy's prospects (U-S-A! U-S-A!) alongside a sobering analysis of the nation's persistent economic problems. It's a 410-page tome , worth its place on your nightstand regardless of the party occupying the White House.

Tim Geithner, the Never-Ending Target — The stock market is rising and the deepest fears about economic turmoil are abating. So things must be looking up for Tim Geithner, right? Not entirely.
