    Why do people keep on being so foolish about polls? Maybe one week before the election they become somewhat accurate. Months before that they are all over the place.

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

    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.

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