I'm talking about the new and improved economic numbers produced this morning. Did you mentally compare them to inflation—even what fedgov says is inflation? If you did, then you must have concluded that all of the shiny, sparkling, rainbow farting good news works out to be negative and that's even if you think the numbers have any relationship with reality in the first place.
This management of perception for fun and profit is rather nauseating. My business is directly related to both housing and manufacturing and we aren't seeing anything that would add any credibility whatsoever to the news we've probably all reviewed today.
