5.2% That’s Huge!

Two thirds of our economy (Gross Domestic Production) is consumer spending related.

A 5%+ increase on over two thirds of the economic spending and growth is good news.

Census Bureau Report Shows Improving Wagescensus-logo

We love the US Government Agency Reports, and especially ones that may shed light on the economy and the US labor force. This week the Census Bureau released an Annual Review of 2015 which may explain some of the better acting capital markets. We plan on discussing more next week along with a few other nuggets that may be helpful.

Here is a taste from the report ….
