On the day after Labor Day in the historically Caribbean neighborhood of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens in central Brooklyn, the thumping bass and steel drums of the annual West Indian Day Parade gave way to a different urban soundtrack: jackhammers and nail guns.

Fortunately talking to ourselves is no longer a problem because people chat on their cell phones everywhere they go, so I muttered and complained because I couldn't believe we're thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas already - it just doesn't seem right.

"Now or never" is the message from debt capital market bankers to junk-rated corporates, which are being pressured to bring bond deals now - even as the US high-yield market grapples with some US$22bn in new issues since Labor Day.
