Bailout Focus On House as Crisis Spreads

By Eddie Evans and Ralph Boulton

U.S. factory orders fell 4 percent in August, on top of data on Wednesday that showed manufacturing activity in September at its weakest since the 2001 recession. U.S. jobless claims rose last week to their highest level in seven years, ahead of September payrolls data due out on Friday.

Soros Says Paulson's Financial-Rescue Plan Is `Ill-Conceived'

Billionaire investor George Soros said the U.S. should inject equity into banks rather than buy their bad debts as proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson in his financial-rescue package.

Middle Americans unite against the great bank rescue
