Seasonal Adjustment Factors Distorting Analysis

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please. – Mark Twain

All the economic news we read is based on data which has been “adjusted” for seasonal variations. As an example, US Census based retail sales historically fluctuate significantly month by month. December retail sales are approximate… Continue

Joe Sixpack Sits in the Economic Dumpster

[note: to view article with original hyperlinks to background data or analysis - press here.]

GDP is not the economy for the vast majority of Americans. It is simply money flows. It ignores housing prices. It ignores net worth. It ignores health care. It ignores unemployment. It ignores the education of Joe’s kids. It ignores the play money Joe Sixpack has left over at the end of the month. GDP is a measure for those that… Continue

Searching For Truth in Employment Data

[Note: This article when originally published contained many hyperlinks to background data and analysis. To view the original article - click on this hyperlink.]

{note: this article was originally published with hyperlinks to background and supporting data. To view the original article click on this hyperlink.]

Recession Is Over – Now Where Are the Jobs

[note: this article was originally published with hyperlinks to background data and analysis. Click here to view the original article.]

The “highlight” of this week was finding out the recession ended in June 2009. There is no question that data supports that the recession was over based on established definitions. The complete statement is an interesting read due to the rationalization of the decision.

I was hoping the NB… Continue

Thank you for the info. Although I found the chart too small to read I understand what you are saying.

However I am most interested in your comment:

"we are also in a paradigm shift mostly caused by the baby boomers preparing to leave the workforce which has caused new investment to fall into 1990 levels."

I have been thinking about that all morning. Are the lack of new investments from lack of baby boomer money? Or because we have newbies that lack experience in finding funding?

Thanks for the note. My company sells ductwork for industrial ventilation. One large sector is woodworking dust collection. But we also sell into many other sectors.
