The U.S. economic recovery is faltering.

The latest data Wednesday showed that the manufacturing sector, which has been a consistent driver of growth over the past year, slowed dramatically in May.

Both reports follow other recent reports pointing to falling home prices, softening consumer spending and rising layoffs.

Hmm. What would cause this, I wonder?
