Are the market numbers completely worthless as well
Not to me. I love the market numbers.
But then again as my success in the market would strictly rate as anecdotal, and in honoring your antipathy here toward anecdotes, I don't see where it's relevant.
OTOH, instability of tax law, instability of regulation, and continual threat of assault on business by this Administration has led to historically large amounts of sidelined capital. It has resulted in damaging declinations in the velocity of money. That in turn has negatively impacted federal revenue.
You seem quite enamored with pathetic inefficiency in the economics wrought by Obama & Co.
Simple as that.
You forward isolated stats like a decline in acceleration of spending as wonderful things. With the specter of inflation, debt/deficits, and teetering domestic real estate the risk of another downturn is certainly not countered by the meager green chutes you're enthralled with.
Might they be the earliest signs of recovery?
Might they simply be harbingers of imminent and unnecessary stagflation?
Bottomline: For 4yrs Washington DC jackasses have done more harm than good to this economy. The results of their efforts were predictable and enabled by sunshine pumpers.
Got it, sunshine pumper?
