More articles than usual this week but I wanted to include the last two in response to the report of record levels of household debt. Much of the “reporting” on this was click bait in my opinion and of the opinion of the authors of two great rebuttals.
We rarely get into politics except for general discussions around the effect politics are having on the markets. But after this week’s statements from the President it is hard to ignore that the executive branch of our government is in shambles. CEOs from the President’s advisory board and career politicians on both sides of the aisle were quick to ridicule the comments and make their feelings know that they vehemently disagreed with Trump. Thus the silver lining in an otherwise extremely sad week in our history. If nothing else it seems at least there is a coming together of sorts between people who otherwise can’t agree on much else.
