    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

NEW YORK, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Korea declined 0.6 percent in May to 122.8 (2004 = 100), following a 1.0 percent increase in April, and a 0.8 percent increase in March.

At the same time, The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for Korea, a measure of current economic activity, declined 0.5 percent in May to 117.9 (2004 = 100), following a 0.1 percent decline in April, and a 0.7 percent decline in March.

The LEI for Korea decreased in May, and as a result its six-month change has slipped into negative territory for the first time since September 2013. Meanwhile, the CEI for Korea also declined in May, and its six-month growth rate has slowed substantially compared to earlier this year. Taken together, the weakening in both the LEI and CEI and their components suggests that the rate of economic growth is unlikely to pick up in the near term.

About The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Korea  
The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading and coincident economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading or coincident indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component – primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components.

The seven components of The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® for Korea include:

Stock Prices
Value of Machinery Orders
Letter of Credit Arrivals
Index of Inventories to Shipments
Export FOB
Yield of Government Public Bonds
Private Construction Orders
