16 Economic Signs

While the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd on Wall Street has spent years selling their army of followers that the U.S. economy is going to become robust “any day now”, we once again find the “real” economy struggling for almost all of us not in the “1%” crowd.

Remembering what John Crudele of the NY Post has already shown us regarding the “fudging” of monthly employment figures for several years now, it should come as no surprise that the “Happy” people “pump” up Friday’s employment release.

I for one, won’t be breathing in the “happy gas” and know there are numerous factors that strongly suggest the U.S. economy is not in great shape.
