Kinda like the first 999 feet of a thousand-foot fall could be almost pleasant.
not the same thing that was said .... having things you can't control as concerns vs things you can control as the worries is very different than your blanket unrelated statement which i have no clue what it is supposed to mean ... each or our own financial well being is a priority for most of us who care about their outcomes in life financially .

It's exactly what was said: "Who cares about policies, the economy is doing great!"

Note verb tense.

Uh-huh.

It's Trade War D-Day +1 Year+ and the economy has continued to grow and there's jobs-a-plenty.

In 2017 you had 3,633,000 jobs added and so far this year 1,746,000 jobs added (according to the CPS).

Based on the CES, payroll expanded by 5,160,000 jobs in 2017 and 2,126,000 jobs added so far.

So, where's the destruction?

The "economists" kept claiming it would cause massive job losses.

The only thing that happened was month after month of record low new unemployment claims.

People don't have to like a President's trade policies, but that's not a reason to lie.

If it was Obama levying those trade tariffs, those same Doom & Gloom economists would be demanding Obama get the Nobel Prize in Economics.

It's sad really, that they cannot be objective.

If the economy falters, it'll be because of Federal Reserve rate hikes, not tariffs.

Not really. It's been a year of mostly sabre-rattling* and trivial changes, up until the last month.

See you in a year.




* Which, oddly enough, now goes "tweet, tweet."

I suppose you're claiming to post gospel?

But my statement (about what was actually said) remains fact.

My posts are never predictive ... they are only about some of the ways to allow and plan for uncertainty as best as we can and dealing with the hand we are already dealt

Your posts here are exactly in line with my assessment: "today's great, who cares about factors completely out of my control that might affect tomorrow."

Nonsense ... I worry about what I can control. There is a difference between a worry and a concern ... They don’t pay me enough to solve the worlds ills nor am I smart enough.. I will leave that to you since you seem to have the answers for even the stuff you seem to have little knowledge in like retirement planning methodology
