I guess our former economic prognostication service has ended so I wanted to post two recent articles for your review. They show job growth, a sustained decrease in numbers of unemployed and upward wage pressure. In fact, it might suggest that the slowest modern recovery from the deepest and most severe modern recession has been sustained, methodical and, above all else, successful despite a mountain of misinformation.

Nah, it's terrible lies. All the jobs are bad, and people have left the workforce for a life of crime. This will be true as long as Democrats are in office, but the numbers become real when the next GOP president takes office. BTW, hope W is right about when that will happen.

I actually have some understanding of economics so, therefore, you'll not see me post a zerohedge chart.

sorry.:hihi:

You're a poor substitute, dtc. :ezbill:


I noticed we have also lost "he who shall not be named" since the Trump tape came out.

Where did you study economics, Fidel Castro University? So I guess we are at full employment the past couple of years. Yup wage growth is up a McDonalds and the methodical 2% GDP growth is the best its been. Hillary will do much better at the economy than Obama. Lots of money turn over and lots of cash flowing into the Clinton Foundation.

There's not a zero nor a hedge in either of those links so obviously this is a bogus economics post.

GDP up 2-3% is sustainable if accompanied by matching growth in real wages. GDP up 5-6% with stagnant wage growth is accomplished with smoke-and-mirrors credit and speculation, which leads to financial meltdown.

Meanwhile, we are on the verge of nuclear war with Russia, North Korea and Iran, while ISIS, who is funded by our allies, runs rampant in 32 countries. Everything is great.

Well, on the plus side, there's never been anything quite like water really stimulate economic growth. So, we've got that going for us, you know, which is nice.

North Korea can't hit us. Russia and China are the only major powers who should be nervous, especially since the North Koreans have terrible aim.



BTW, we're talking about positive economic news. Can't you be happy about one thing?

And also, NK's Teapodong-2 hasn't been fully tested for range. I think the third stage hasn't worked yet.
