    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    Still work left to do to undo the Democratic Driven Economic Train Wreck from Queen Nancy's reign as majority leader.... Back when killing the US defense industry was the order of the day.

    "President Trump signed a $700 billion defense budget earlier this month, but budget caps put in place in 2011 remain on the books, robbing the Pentagon of much-needed money to rebuild the military. That drew concern from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Capitol Hill Friday.

    "Defense has actually been hit harder under the Budget Control Act than domestic programs have," McConnell said. "So, I think there's an urgency there.""

    ^^ Obambi’s apologist legacy still looms big time. He did awful things to this country that can never be undone. Tried to destroy the military with budget cuts, impossible rules of engagement designed to kill American troops and redlines nooo enemy took seriously. The best description I can think of is facist communist globalist pussyfooting coward.

    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    Here's one the MSM is dancing all around, total avoidance syndrome - TAS.



    After the crash of '08, things slowly rebounded as expected - then, during the last two years of Obama basically flat-lined. The interest rates really tell the story.

    Then, during Trump's first year in office, after unshackling the economy, again as expected, things finally take off like a rocket.

    Expect to finally see the interest rates return to more normal levels, levels that can actually sustain an economy.

    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    Might need to contact a doctor as this might last 4+ hours..... 5.4!!

    Latest forecast: 5.4 percent — February 1, 2018

    The growth rate of real gross domestic product (GDP) is a key indicator of economic activity, but the official estimate is released with a delay. Our GDPNow forecasting model provides a "nowcast" of the official estimate prior to its release.Recent forecasts for the GDPNow model are available here. More extensive numerical details—including underlying source data, forecasts, and model parameters—are available as a separate spreadsheet.
    Latest forecast: 5.4 percent — February 1, 2018

    The GDPNow model forecast for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the first quarter of 2018 is 5.4 percent on February 1, up from 4.2 percent on January 29. The forecast of real consumer spending growth increased from 3.1 percent to 4.0 percent after this morning's Manufacturing ISM Report On Business from the Institute for Supply Management, while the forecast of real private fixed-investment growth increased from 5.2 percent to 9.2 percent after the ISM report and this morning's construction spending release from the U.S. Census Bureau. The model's estimate of the dynamic factor for January—normalized to have mean 0 and standard deviation 1 and used to forecast the yet-to-be released monthly GDP source data—increased from 0.42 to 1.37 after the ISM report.

    Re: Economic News/Discussion

    Embedded within the Obama Mind Set the cure for this is more government oversight.

    "The problem is, we don’t know where their money goes. The report reveals issues ranging from “misstatements” in the agency’s books, lack of documentation about projects that are in motion, to no documentation at all for $384 million in spending."

    Thanks Obama...just what we need, more government agencies and bloat.

    Economic News Release

    Establishment Survey Data

    Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 313,000 in February. Job gains occurred in
    construction, retail trade, professional and business services, manufacturing,
    financial activities, and mining. (See table B-1.)

    I actually listened to a talking head this morning who said with a straight face that credit should go to Obama for preparing the economy for this.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    All the economy was waiting for was that sh*t-4-brains Obama to be gone... the results just after he left bear that out. Cankles loss and the discontinuation and roll back of Obama's economy killing policies put a pair of JATO rockets on it. Turns out we did not need a "magic wand"... to the grossly incompetent getting things done must be like watching magic at work.
