This is not what happens in a booming economy.

Capital investments (blue line) remain weak. It is quite difficult to conceive strong output from manufacturing (red line) without more strength in orders for capital goods. 

There is no doubt this chart does not reflect a booming economy as some politicians would like us to believe.  

Investment implications are discussed in depth in each issue of The Peter Dag Portfolio.

Well, into my opinion, modern economy is growing and developing. I don’t know much about investing but I read financial news regularly and I know that investing market is also doing quite well. By the way, I think that sooner or later everyone must consider making investments. Life is unpredictable and you never know when you may face a need to choose quality lending services to make ends meet. Thus, even if you are not an investor, it’s important to save money and look for a passive income sources.
