The candidates seem to have a vested interest in telling us the economy stinks, blaming each other for it, and offering voters non-specific promises on how everything will be much better if they are elected president.
But I’m beginning to see indications that gloom and doom about our economy’s future may not present an accurate picture. Recently I shared a U-S-A Today story quoting analysts who predict our economy will grow 12 million jobs over the next four years … no matter who wins November 6th.
The unemployment rate is edging downward. Here in Kansas the jobless rate hit 5.9% in September, the first time it’s been below 6% in nearly four years.
We all know good things happen when American companies begin hiring. Families do better … they spend and save more … and pay more taxes.
Apparently, an optimistic tone will not sway voters as much as the blame game and promoting fear and anxiety about the future.
I believe America’s on the rebound.
