Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- On today's "The Agenda," Tom Keene, Scarlet Fu and Michael McKee look at trending news stories on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg Surveillance." (Source: Bloomberg)

Agenda, looking at stories of the day.

Of course.

I want to see the beige book today, the reason being for the last couple of quarters growth has been picking up.

The fourth quarter is supposed to be three percent, four percent, but the beige book keeps talking about moderate growth.

I want to see if the companies and people out there and the rest of america start to reflect what we see as an improving economy.

Is there anecdotal evidence from those many critics in the regions that catch up with economic data?

To be perfectly honest, i have never found the beige book that helpful.

That would be helpful, but i would believe it more if it showed up in the jobs numbers than the anecdotes of regional presidents.

Not only was alan krueger the chairman of the presidents council economic advisers, he figured out where everyone sat at the fancy dinners.

He will need that as the president of france visits washington later this month.

A scandal involving an actress.

Help me, valerie?

Bob said he was a full professor at m.i.t. and there was no higher rank.

There we go.

My agenda, general motors, selecting a modest profit increase in 2013. the u.s.. alan krueger, thank you so much for joining us this morning is the guest host.

Tom and i will continue to talk on bloomberg radio.
