    Well lets see. within 2 hours of the passage of the tax bill 4 companies have decided (and give credit to the new tax for making it possible)

    these 4 companies are investing somewhere between 500,000,000 - 600,000,000 dollars in their employees.

    OOPS. I know that pisses you off employees are already getting raises bonuses ... ...

    But I get that you keep harping on that post even when I told you where I got it from.

    I guess it's too much of a burden for you to actually read the link???
    I read the first link you provided, one, dated Oct 30.

    I asked nicely for a source and you nicely provided one from Forbes.

    No matter which source you use, you can't compute the "first 11 months" stock market performance until the "first 11 months" are complete.

    Yesterday they were not complete, when you posted the numbers for the "first 11 months".

    There was a trading day left in the "first 11 months".

    You STILL don't understand that?

    LOL

    I get it...you have to keep going back to the same thing now for the 20th time rather than admit you got it wrong. And still have provided no evidence for your assertion as well.

    But here you go...dated YESTERDAY - you know the 11th month mark

    Trump's stock market growth vs. past presidents

    President Trump likes to talk about the stock market's strong performance since took office, including how the S&P 500 keeps hitting record highs. But, in terms of percentage growth, the index's performance under Trump actually lags its performance through the first 11 months of President Obama and the first President Bush.

    Obama also oversaw stronger percentage performance for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and NASDAQ over his first 11 months in office than has Trump, although the two inherited much different sorts of economies

    Have you corrected your erroneous info in post #39?

    No?

    The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.

    Faced with the choice between changing one's mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.

    The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.


    Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists.

    You right wingers are easy to fool. It's like Trump's stupidity is only matched by his followers!
