    Why do I care about what SkyNews says.

    Trump’s first tariffs were levied on 22 Jan. Even though it was on small things it showed investors that he was actually dumb enough to follow through on his threats.

    You have an odd idea of booming.

    Everyone has their own idea of "booming". Some folks care about GDP--

    --and others care about workers' wages:

    It absolutely is everything to folks who don't do numbers and only look at the pictures.

    Those people will look at the post # 96 set and the others in post # 95 and say one is true and the other is false. Someone who understands numbers will see that they're both true. As for post # 97 a numbers person won't waste his time w/ partial info and the picture person will say "oooh gee, more pix I don't understand..."

    But that's not what we were talking about. The fact remains that if we say a 'boom' is GDP growth, low unemployment, or rising wages we got numbers and we got pictures. Personally, numbers work better for me but I understand that pictures are more fun --so to each his own.

    Yes, they are both true which was my point. I am glad you understood.


    Post 97 was the most important post of all. When you take away the dates and people cannot look at them and go "that is where Trump was elected" they have no choice but to admit that have been no changes in those things.

    If a boom' is GDP growth, low unemployment, or rising wages then the boom started in 2010.
