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.

Thanks so much for providing this helpful information. I really like your blog because I like to read about finances. However, I don’t know much about investing. I think that today American economy is relatively in a good condition because the unemployment rate is quite low and many Americans have personal savings. However, there always will be people who need help of easy lenders online to make ends meet. Hopefully, that the situation will get even better soon and more of Americans will feel financially secured and confident.
