March on Washington

There is more than one-way to march on Washington. MoveOn.org is sponsoring a virtual march on Washington on February 1st...This march will be made in the form of phone calls, emails and faxes, to send one million direct contacts to member of Congress to stop the escalation...everyone can take part in this march. If, for one day, no one in Congress received any other messages from constituents except a call to stop Bush's escalation in Iraq, we can be louder and clearer than any mass rally. You can take part here. I have signed up.

hp~ "The fresh snapshot of business activity, released by the Commerce Department yesterday, underscored the resilience of the economy; it has managed to keep on moving despite the ill effects of the residential real-estate bust and an ailing automotive sector.

More brisk government spending also helped the fourth-quarter...

Investment in home building during the fourth quarter plunged at a rate of 19.2 percent, even worse than the 18.7 percent drop in the prior quarter. Both were the worst drops in 15 years.

Even with the slight improvement, underlying inflation is running higher than the Federal Reserve would like. For all of 2006, core inflation rose by 2.2 percent, up from 2.1 percent in 2005".

Above are some interesting *bits & pieces* from your report. Notice how they mention "the ill effects of the residential real-estate bust and an ailing automotive sector. And, inflation is running higher than the Federal Reserve would like."

Also, "More brisk government spending also helped the fourth-quarter"

So, all-in-all, it was the Iraq war that mostly stimulated the economy, not very impressive. But, thx for posting the site. I always like sharpening my mental skills with documented info.

chuck~ BACKACHA!!

Wartime spending always stimulates the economy...unless they overspend.

The economy has also been chugging along because consumers are saving less (at a new 74 year low) and spending more than they make.

Isn't that great? Most people are now living paycheck to paycheck because they want the nice house, or new car, or latest gadgets.

interesting that the comments have gotten off on economics. Most wars are financed through taxes and bonds, and the public is expected to sacrifice. You can't finance unpopular wars like that, so you do it by deficits, as is happening now or in Vietnam.
