  1. Leonhard, what do you mean by a good economy?...

    Leonhard, what do you mean by a good economy? What is good? What does it mean for an economy to improve?
  2. GDP increasing only tells you that the rich are...

    GDP increasing only tells you that the rich are getting richer, and same for the stock market index.

    What's the underlying value system, what is the metaphysic? Demi says that if the economy is...

    In contrast, what actually matters is how the poor are doing.* Increase in job openings matter because they can indicate for job mobility and that labour supply is outstripping demand, meaning that...

    CPI doesn't account for the trillions in QE, and there is probably no good way to account for the inflation.

    In any case you should not be using GDP and stock market values, inflation adjusted or...

    I'll make this crystal clear in big font.

    DO NOT USE STOCK INDICES AS MEASUREMENT OF ECONOMY WELLNESS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT INFLATION ADJUSTED

    They are completely unreliable as a proxy for how...

    One last try:

    Economic analysts: if you want to compare GDP or income to other years, the dollar values must must MUST be inflation adjusted.

    It remains to be seen if turnout for Sanders is better than in 2016. Demi doesn't trust the figures, but the moderate vote is being split. For Sanders vs moderates, it's still unclear who's winning.

    demi pointed this out in 2016. Now things are better, the economy is doing better, Trump has made some good changes so there's a lot less pressure.

    Leonhard, demi will just say it once more.

    If you want to be a serious thinker about economics, don't use stock market indices. They are not even inflation-adjusted, making them worse than...
  11. Almost anything is more essential than GDP or...

    Almost anything is more essential than GDP or stock market since they are so manipulated. I've argued why looking at job openings compared to unemployment is useful, but you're not listening.

  12. Why do you care so much about GDP or stock market...

    Why do you care so much about GDP or stock market indices? Is it some kind of blind spot?

    Those are useless regarding the poor, who are primarily affected by job availability, salaries, and cost...

    Median household income graph shows explosive growth, there you go.

    The other metrics you depict are not useful, demi would look at more useful indicators like job openings compared to...

    Yes, presidents should be described warts and all, preventing more dumb nonsense about being 'unpresidential'.

    In any case, Trump has purged the intelligence services to some extent.
