Bump for Dow hitting 20,000 for the 1st time ever.

We'll have to see if it closes over 20,000.

lol. I fully expect a recession soon and have been saying that for over a year along with the caveat that it wouldn't be Hillary's or Trump's fault. Simply that we were due to have one.

Michigan gas prices drop about nine cents

According to AAA, the current statewide average has decreased for the third consecutive week making the average about $2.19 per gallon. However, this price is about 50 cents more than this same time last year.

Of the areas surveyed by AAA, the lowest average price can be found in the Flint area for the fourth week in a row for about $2.05 a gallon. The highest price can be found in the Marquette area for the third week in a row where it's about $2.48 a gallon.

PAUL KRUGMAN ON ELECTION NIGHT: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.”

Today: “There is no denying the fact that the markets have absolutely been blowing up since the election! In fact this is one of the biggest rallies since the Taft Administration. The DOW is up over 13% and the other markets are also up double digits!”

Starting in 2008, under Obama, the Federal Reserve dumped tons of money into the bond market. That killed rates and along with it any interest in bonds. Investors focused on stocks and thus you had your bull market.

The day President Trump took office, January 20, the national debt was $19,947,304,555,212.49 – what we usually would write as $19.9 trillion. The last day the debt was totaled by the Treasury Department on Friday, February 23, it was $19,913,901,120,188.15. No need to break out the calculators – that’s $33,403,435,024.34 less than on Inauguration Day, or what we would usually refer to as $33 billion.

Wait I thought he inherited a mess and Obama was the worst President ever? Are we now suggesting Obama and his administration were pretty good at budgeting and Trump is benefiting from Obama's and Congress' work?

Because Trump's administration hasn't done shit to impact the budget yet. But he did just request $54 billion in additional funding for the military so we can kiss our $30 billion goodbye.

The Stimulus package was mostly drafted into law by Democrats in Congress and signed into law by President Obama. Nearly every republican voted against it so the stimulus package for all its benefits and shortcomings falls on the democratic party, though I recall they did make some concessions to republicans, I can't remember what those concessions were but I'm sure it had something to do with taxes on the wealthy.

That's a pretty accurate description although I don't know about the tax part, I'd have to research that. I do know this - when partisan websites like TPM and Kos calculate the "Bush deficits" vs the "Obama deficits" they lay the '09 budget which was modified to include the Stimulus on Bush since it was originally his budget. Most news orgs go along with that, which is pure bullshit.

Yeah I've seen that. Budgets are way over-attributed to Presidents just because they sign them. The reality is that budgets are done by Congress and whichever party has control of congress will control the vast majority of budget decisions at that time. The President is more or less forced to approve a budget at some point, even if they're not 100% on board with it.

Usually this results in the winning party being able to do whatever they want with the budget at least until mid-term elections.

+298,000 jobs in February according to ADP. 100,000 more than anticipated.

Too bad people won't be able to enjoy their new jobs as the world goes to hell.

U.S. Consumer Comfort Just Reached Its Highest Level in a Decade

You wouldn't know it by the continual panic in here.....

Key Points

Consumer comfort index rose to 50.6 in the period ended March 5, the highest since March 2007, from 49.8

Measure has exceeded 50 just six times since April 2002

Gauge of economy advanced to 48.2, the highest since August 2001, from 46.8

Buying-climate measure rose to 44.5, the strongest reading since April 2002, from 43.7

Index of personal finances was little changed at 58.9 versus 59
