CES Las Vegas

The giant Consumer Electronics Show, kicking off in Las Vegas with tonight's keynote from Microsoft's Steve Ballmer, is at a crossroads. While the economy might be improving ever so slowly, and the holiday shopping season seemed kind to gizmos and gadgets, tech companies learned a powerful—and for CES troubling—lesson last year.

Thomson Reuters' IFR Markets says so far this week, there's been $51 billion in total dollar-denominated corporate issuance. This would be the largest weekly issuance since 2000, were it not for the $71 billion in the first week of 2009, when financial institutions relied on a government guarantee to issue $48 billion in debt.
