May 21, 2024 – Music To Our Ears?

0

Economic Commentary It is hard to admit that we are rooting for poorer economic conditions. Less job growth, lower consumer confidence, slower service sector growth, tepid retail sales and more. But if you are a fan of lower interest rates, that is exactly what we need to see in order to bring inflation down to the point that the Federal...” Read More

May 14, 2024 – Higher For Even Longer

0

Economic Commentary It was just early last year that the markets introduced the concept of higher interest rates for a “longer period of time.” With the economy continuing to grow briskly and inflation coming down, but at a slower pace, there was no reason for the Federal Reserve to rush things. Thus, we pushed off predictions for a rate decrease....” Read More

May 7, 2024 – Jobs and the Fed.

0

Economic Commentary It was a busy week with the jobs report and the meeting of the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee within days of each other. The Fed met first and they surprised nobody by leaving short-term rates where they were, though they announced that they would be selling off less of their holdings monthly. Recent strong economic news and...” Read More

April 30, 2024 – More Jobs Than People?

0

Economic Commentary Every month for the past three years we have been singing the same refrain – the job market is hot. Except there is a limit to the number of jobs that can be created. And not every person qualifies for every job. For example, if there are many job openings for doctors, it is not likely that most...” Read More

April 23, 2024 – Why Are People Not Happy?

0

Economic Commentary The job market has been hot. The economy has added jobs for 39 consecutive months, marking the fifth-longest period of job expansion on record. The unemployment rate has been below 4.0% for 26 months in a row, the longest streak since the late 1960s. Moving to the stock market, the S&P 500 has gained approximately 80% in the...” Read More

April 16, 2024 – Just How Valuable is Real Estate?

0

Economic Commentary Those that have owned homes for a long-time understand what the numbers tell us about homeowners. According to the Federal Reserve, homeowners have a much higher net worth than renters do — the median net worth for a homeowner in 2022 was $396,200, versus just $10,400 for renters. As strong as these numbers are—homeownership delivers more value than...” Read More

April 9, 2024 – Another Month Strong of Jobs Gains.

0

Economic Commentary If the Federal Reserve is waiting for the economy to slow down before it eases interest rates, there is no doubt that they are watching the monthly jobs report for a significant clue. Thus far this year, there has been no sign that the economy is producing less jobs each month. The pace of the creation of jobs...” Read More

April 2, 2024 – Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

0

Economic Commentary It is no fun being a member of the Federal Reserve right now. The economy continues to grow in spite of higher interest rates and inflation has calmed down. But inflation is still being a bit stubborn and it is taking a longer time to reach the Fed’s stated goal of 2.0% inflation rate. Here is the problem...” Read More

March 26, 2024 – Fed: Nothing Doing.

0

Economic Commentary There is so much anticipation with every meeting of the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee, which meets around eight times per year. The analysts are over the top with predictions of actions and then they obsess on every word of their post meeting announcements. And a few weeks later, when the minutes of the meeting are released, it...” Read More

March 19, 2024 – As baby boomers age, their homes are going to increasingly be hitting the open market. Will it Spring?

0

Economic Commentary Believe it or not, today is the first “night” of spring, as the Spring Equinox happens late this evening. This means that we are almost through the first quarter of the year. Spring is especially important not only because of the nice weather and the flowers, but also because it is prime real estate season. Going into the...” Read More
