    Trump's whole lot of hype for 2.7% growth 2017

    CORRECTION: I had it right originally in the title, thought I misread it, changed it to 2.7 as another source said 2.7 for the year. IT WAS 2.3 FOR THE YEAR. 2.7 LAST QUARTER. (That sucks even worse given the frigging HYPE). Overall, GDP increased by 2.3 percent in 2017, up from a 1.5...

    CLUB for GROWTH just nixed GOP tax bill. NO GROWTH. Still too many taxes on the TOP!

    The funny part is they are bitching about too much tax on the wealthy still. And want to kill off the estate tax. So where DOES the 'BALANCE BUDGET', deficit hawk crowd go to to offset all the additional tax cuts for corporations and the rich? Hell, if they can't win them over, WTH is the...

    US economic growth hits a 2-year high on strong business and consumer spending

    This is part of the reason people wanted Trump. Shows that the stagnant economy of the last 8 years was at least partly Obama's fault. Trump needs to keep this going. I believe if the tax cuts are passed we will see the economy continue to grow Gross domestic product growth hits a...

    Trumps hope for 3-4% GDP growth may not be far fetched

    When President Donald Trump predicted that his policies would spur growth of 3 percent or more, a lot of economists didn't take him seriously. They may now. The latest figures on the economy show that breakout economic growth may not just yet be at hand, but it's certainly within reach. A...

    1st QUARTER 2017 0.7% (weakest growth rate in 3 years)

    But wait, wait, I thought TRUMP was sending the economy soaring. I guess there's that 'disconnect' thing with the 'market place' and the stock market. Consumer spending IS the driver of how a country feels about its potential--personal and big picture. Economists were definitely expecting...

    Did Trump demonstrate growth in his State of the Union Speech?

    Let's see what typically liberal news outlets said. Note the question mark. Your opinion and analysis matter. Trump has never managed a public sector entity before now. He has never been responsible to stockholders or voters, only to customers. Did he address the american public as customers? Is...
