If we were really going to expand by a robust 3% or more pace, why is the administration talking about a middle-class tax cut? Didn’t we already have a massive one?

My concern has been and will likely continue to be the diminishing gains in consumer purchasing power.

Wage gains continue to decelerate and that is not good news for workers. Over the year, the average hourly wage was up only 2.9%, the lowest increase since July 2018.

Growth might have been modestly better than expected at the end of last year, but only because the tariffs created dislocations in trade flows.

Keep in mind, the economy grew at a roughly 2.25% pace last year while the major equity indices soared by well over 20% and even over 30%. That seems to imply that the economy and the markets are not closely linked.
