Additionally, a recent UBS survey of business confidence shows the Tax reform bill passing has created a stunning jump in already strong optimism for the future.

      The Stock Market is a forward looking indicator. The more appropriate starting point would be the date after the election, not the date of the inauguration. CNN is giving Obama credit for the massive market upswing which began the day after Trump won (contrary to Krugman’s prediction) and is excusing the market plunge after Obama’s election.

    Polls like this is what has the dems and the deep state freaking out right now. This is not what they want to see. President Trump is winning and they aren’t happy. I am though! 😀

  10. Where I work we have a customer that is not enthused about our economy. They help local governments deal with regulations on projects. They laid off 1/2 of their staff last month.

    I think the current gyrations of Wall Street are meant to offset the health and growth of Main Street.

    We need to return to a Wall Street that was meant for INVESTING, not for SPECULATING. No more esoteric “investing” on speculation… go back to the good old job of providing capital for Main Street. Put a 99% tax on very short term gains.

    I can’t recall who said it on FOX Business recently, but, we haven’t had robust growth like this since 2000. Obama tried to say 2% growth is the new normal. Clearly, economic growth from tax reform and deregulation prove the Democrat tax & spend policies, fundamental to liberalism, are a recipe for economic stagnation, misery, and discontent.

      “economic stagnation, misery, and discontent” are the goals of the American Progressive Party to create division and envy… it’s all about the “politics of meaning” where groups of people are put apart and played against each other.

      Or, as Julius Caesar pointed out: “Divide and Conquer”

      I would say the Democrats are very good at that sort of thing.

      Personally, I hate their guts.

      And a lot of the 2000 boom was based on wild investment in emerging internet companies. Companies with no hard assets nothing more than projected sales were having cash thrown at them in huge amounts, and then one day investors work up and wondered why they were funding companies with no profits.

      This is even better because we’re seeing optimism based on the prospects of real jobs with companies that actually make things that you can touch.

    NY Federal Reserve has revised their 1st Quarter GDP forecast (2018) from 3.09% on January 26th to 3.22% on February 2nd.

    Not surprisingly the Atlanta Federal Reserve revised their 1st Quarter GDP forecast (2018) from 5.4% on February 2nd to 4.0% today.

    This is what wins elections! Keep that in mind while you are complaining about no arrests or perp walks.They could arrest the whole dem party but if the economy sucks at election time the incumbents will lose.

    Hmmmm…”17th straight month it has been over 50.” What could have happened in November 2016 to spark such a surge?
