7 reasons America’s economic recovery not real

7-reasons-americas-economic-recovery-not-realThere is simply no economic recovery. All one has to do is take a look at a chart of copper or the Baltic Dry Index to understand that every statistic the BLS issues is nothing but rubbish. There are a huge number of individuals including fund managers who have sat out this bull market because they have rightly made the following assertions

  • Copper a leading indicator is in a death spiral so all must not be well
  • The Baltic Dry index another leading indicator is also in a death spiral, so the economic recovery is all smoke and mirrors
  • Overall Market volume is terrible, and this does not bode well for the markets
  • Unemployment figures are twisted, and the data the BLS puts out does not give you a real picture of what is going on
  • Real wages have been declining since 2000
  • Student debt is time bomb waiting to explode
  • We are creating new debt at a mind-boggling rate
Conclusion

We could list dozens of more reasons, but you know what, other than sounding like another naysayer, it would not help you one bit.  These chaps are kicking themselves in the Shin and some in even more sensitive parts as they cannot fathom how against this terrible backdrop the markets have soared so high over the past seven years.  Please do not tell us you believe that the markets can only trend higher without experiencing a correction; every bull market experiences one or two extremely strong corrections. The last real correction we had was back in 2011; everything after that was at most a tiny road bump
