    I think the world is doing a fine job of ignoring economic reality.

    US retail sales slumped 0.2% in February; less spending on building materials, electronics and groceries.

    But what about the debt owned to yourself, like unfunded liabilities
    (pensions, health care...)

    It is ten times bigger: 222 trillion US $:

    My note: to me it seems unimaginable that stocks can go up with such huge debt.
    i think it is the expectation of the depreciation of the loose money which boosts stockprices.
    Unless the Co goes bust, a stock represents a piece of the company, i.e. a real part of ownership of something real ( or perceived as real ) whereas a bond is a promise of an amount of a number of moneyunits whose value is very uncertain over time.

    Services sector growth falls to slowest pace since August 2017


    The ISM non-manufacturing index fell to 56.1 in March, the weakest print since August 2017, down from 59.7 in February.
    “The non-manufacturing sector’s growth cooled off in March after strong growth in February,” said Anthony Nieves, chair of the Institute for Supply Management. “They still have underlying concerns about employment resources and capacity constraints.”

    Growth in the U.S. services sector fell more than expected and reached its slowest pace in more than a year, according to data from the Institute for Supply Management released on Wednesday.

    The ISM non-manufacturing index fell to 56.1 in March, the weakest print since August 2017, down from 59.7 in February. Economists polled by Refinitiv expected the index to dip to 58.

    “The non-manufacturing sector’s growth cooled off in March after strong growth in February,” said Anthony Nieves, chair of the Institute for Supply Management, in a statement. “Respondents remain mostly optimistic about overall business conditions and the economy. They still have underlying concerns about employment resources and capacity constraints.”

    New orders, a key component of the overall index, fell by 6.2 points last month to 59. Meanwhile, prices increased by 4.3 points to 58.7.

    We've Been in a Powerful Economic "Expansion" Now for About 10 Years...
    LOL..
    We used to hear "it's a Recovery" Back when the Dow was Tipping past 10,000
    seems kind of silly to Try to pour Doom and Gloom on such a Obviously "Hot" Economy.

    It will be awhile yet, it takes at least a year to slow down the U.S. economy, and it's no slowing down yet. Closing retail stores won't put a dent in this thing, although maybe a precursor, people just moved to online transactions, if anything that shows some belt tightening to start as folks chase lower prices.

    Yes you can ! These last 10 years are proof that you can ignore economic reality.

    However, you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring economic reality.

    Those are coming !

    Do not try and understand the economic reality. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.

    There is no economic reality.
