148,000 jobs were added in 2017. That less than the 200,000 plus jobs predicted. Unemployment rates have been steadily declining since 2011, when the nation began showing signs of recovery from the Great Recession, Housing & Financial market crashes of 2007 through 2009. The U.S economic picture today is very close and on track to what our leading Economist predicted it would be in 2008.
The inflated U.S stock market isn’t benefiting the 55% of the U.S. population that have no personal, job related or retirement related investment in it. Although every other westernized stock market in the world is bubbling at the same pace the U.S., the beneficiaries are more equally spread across their populations.
I know you would like to think Trump had a positive impact on today’s economic gains. Unfortunately you won’t find any leading economist to agree with you.
In a couple of years, we will be able to revisit Trump’s tax cuts. It should be an interesting discussion on the impact of Trump & the Republican Congress Tax re-write that favor 80% of the wealthiest in our nation.
