    • American consumer confidence climbed to 15-year high in December
      The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index climbed to 113.7 in December, up from 109.4 in November and the highest since it reached 114 in August 2001.

      The index measures consumers' assessment of current conditions, which dipped from November but was still very positive, and their expectations for the future, which hit a high.

      Director of economic indicators at the Conference Board Lynn Franco said the "post-election surge in optimism" was strongest among Americans who were older.

      Later on Tuesday, Trump thanked himself for the consumer confidence surge. He took to Twitter to note that the numbers of confidence levels are the highest the index has climbed in more than 15 years. Trump added, "Thanks Donald!"

      I should add that the concept of quantum computing has recently been simplified without diminished functionality. There may be an intersection between what IBM was doing underground and this discovery.

      qComputers represent one of the necessary steps in the evolution of society and technology that forces republics to socialize things.

    • Gallup: Investor Optimism Reaches 9-Year High After Donald Trump Elected
      Investor optimism has risen to a nine-year high as the stock market has climbed to record highs following the election of Republican Donald Trump as president.

      The Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index increased in November to 96 from 79 in the third quarter. The benchmark for retired investors increased 36 points to 117, and by 11 points to 89 among non-retired investors.

      The S&P 500 stock index has gained about 7 percent since Election Day to a record high, while the Dow Jones industrial average has roared 9 percent on its way to the 20,000 mark.

      "Rising investor optimism and the stock market reaching all-time highs is great news to end the year on, but it isn't necessarily driving investors to put their money into the markets," Scott Wren, senior global equity strategist for Wells Fargo Investment Institute, said in a statement. "Investors are more interested in the markets, but it takes time for this optimism to translate to flows into the stock market, especially when investors have been cautious for so long."

    • Post Xmas Economics
      Dear dregs and other detritus floating in the cesspool; do you anticipate price slashing of goods of all types after the Christmas sales season has ended?

      Will those not tempted to buy shit for giving to likely ungrateful others for Xmas realize good to great cost savings by buying shit after Christmas?

      Will Negroes just wait until Xmas is past and break into other's abodes and steal the shit that attracts their bestial attention?

    • IBM unveils plan to hire 25,000 workers in US on eve of Donald Trump meeting
      [quote]..[/quote]

      Did they do any form of exporting jobs overseas in the last few years? cause this is the case for a lot of companies after they fused or went overseas shit went down the drain because customer service and/or interaction dropped to a standpoint to the point where any wet behind the ears sales employee of an opposing company could easily snatch away your clientelle.

      I work in IT and the first companies I saw fall around me were companies who suddenly got a new manager with a history in sales or fiscal administration who decided on a hunch it'd be profitable to outsource shit to India, China and some other lower wage countries

      Then one year later they lost all their customers because their customers got fed up of trying to communicate with people with questionable skill level, are on the other side of the fucking world and speak in broken english.

    • Study: 'American Dream' fades by 42% since 1940s
      It was easy to make more than your parents back then because the parents probably worked for pennies an hour in some deadly factory. Since then safety and workers rights have dramatically improved which helped the children easily surpass what their parents were making.

      No, the standard of living is much higher and therefore harder to easily surpass...

      outsourcing is used to give financial institutions total power over the working man

      America could have had a million year reign of economic prosperity but the financial powers that be know that countries should only be given prosperity for certain amounts of time to prevent the people from assuming too much collective power. Outsourcing and moving plants to other countries is a strategy used to help rebuild impoverished countries at the expense of much better off countries. These are short term systems in plqce.What Donald Trump represents is the financial powers that be telling us that we survived economic scarcity and now it's time for the financial powers that be to reintroduce a strong economy back to America. We will see economic growth and prosperity for 20-40 years while China India and other current booms will all crumble back to impoverishment. But we will see outsourcing again long after Trump is dead. The cycle goes on and on and on.

      But for now, it's time to celebrate because in America, those empty lots are about to be full again. America is ready to go back to work, this time I th a new labor force of people with less leverage than ever before, lower wages and weak unions.
