Monthly Report on Real Economic Indicators

The monthly tracking on the state of the macro and micro economy makes it even harder to build a short-term economic narrative predicated on national economic progress. That may be possible in years ahead, but difficult in the next four months. A declining number believe the economy is improving, with only 40 percent saying it is “starting to improve” – and a growing number believing it is getting worse. For the great majority of Americans, this is a period of uncertainty. Indeed, over 60 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction – stuck at that level since the first month of positive job numbers.
