It actually doesn't. Went up 5 per cent the year before.
Does that mean we are in a recession?
It means you were wrong when you said that this year's numbers compared favourably to previous years. Why did you lie without confirming that?

As of mid-June, only 4 percent of workers from just 400 employers (out of the nation’s 5.9 million) had received any kind of payout linked to the tax law. Three-quarters of those payouts were one-time bonuses, not permanent wage increases. Moreover, the $7 billion that workers are getting this year represents just 9 percent of the $77 billion in 2018 business tax cuts estimated so far. The vast majority of the tax cuts are instead going to wealthy CEOs and shareholders: Corporations have announced $484 billion in stock buybacks since the tax plan passed—69 times more than workers are getting in bonuses and raises.

American families and individuals at every income level are seeing tax reduction under this bill, with 90 percent of wage earners seeing more money in their paychecks. A family of four, earning the median income of $73,000 will receive a tax cut of more than $2,000 this year. Similarly, a single parent with one child earning $41,000 per year will see tax reduction of 73 percent, resulting in a $1,304 tax cut.

Does this mean we are in a recession?

No, it means we are blowing up the deficit now for political gain that we will have to pay for later.

And who said we are in a recession?

"There is no magic level of debt that gets an economy in trouble," Brown, the chief economist at Raymond James, said in the note. "Research arguing that view has been discredited. The federal government currently has no problem borrowing, nor is there any evidence that it is crowding out private investment."

Brown's argument is fairly simple: Debt is an issue only if you can't repay it or if other people believe you can't repay it. And, as Business Insider's Myles Udland has noted, the US can literally print the money it needs to repay its debt, and it still maintains a high credit rating.

Berg Steel Pipe Co. at Port Panama City is hiring 140 workers to cover additional business resulting from an expected boost in demand due to regulatory changes, company president and CEO Ingo Riemer said Friday.

One of those changes kicked in on Friday when the Trump administration’s proposal to impose tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on the EU, Canada and Mexico went into effect.

For the past two years, the company has relied on domestic steel plates from the Midwest to make the pipes, Reimer said, after being cut off from the their foreign steel plate sources. It put Berg at a serious competitive disadvantage, he said, as other companies making steel pipes overseas have been shipping them into America at greatly reduced prices.

“We were in such a desperate situation two years ago. We were not booking a lot of orders,” Riemer said. “We were competitive, and then we were cut off from foreign steel (plate) sources, and we were no longer competitive based on U.S. steel (prices).”

In addition to the tariffs, the Commerce Department is well into an investigation of the illegal “dumping” of steel pipe from countries that have been undercutting prices of pipe in this country, Riemer said, which could result in additional tariffs imposed on steel pipes being shipped to the U.S.

“We are pretty confident that this will lead to at least five years of protection,” Riemer said.

Maybe more since Canada will not agree to a sunset clause for nafta.

U.S. Steel Corp. says it will restart the second of two shuttered blast furnaces, hire 300 additional workers and have the Granite City Works fully operational with 1,500 active employees by the end of the year.

“We are excited to announce that after the restart of the ‘A’ blast furnace on or around Oct. 1, all of the steelmaking operations at Granite City will be back on line, helping us meet an increased demand for American-made steel that has only grown since our March announcement,” U.S. Steel President and CEO David Burritt said in a statement.

Braidy Industries broke ground Friday afternoon on its new billion dollar facility located in East Park along the Boyd and Greenup county line.

"This is probably the greatest feeling I've had in a while, since my children were born," Greenup County Judge Executive Bobby Carpenter said. "But this is seeing everything come together that we worked so hard for and the people in Greenup and Boyd and all of this area deserve it. I'm just glad to be part of it."

The company says the construction phase will generate up to 1,800 jobs, both union and nonunion.

JW Aluminum began the expansion of its Mount Holly flat rolled aluminum plant in Goose Creek, South Carolina, which will enable the company to increase capacity by 175 million lbs of flat rolled aluminum.

The expansion will include a new 220,000 square foot building and the installation of proven, state-of-the-art equipment. Hazelett Strip-Casting in Colchester, Vermont will supply twin belt continuous casting system “It will significantly ease the projected shortage of aluminum coil in the U.S.”

As part of the expansion, JW Aluminum will add 50 new jobs to its workforce and is currently recruiting skilled operators, industrial and electrical technicians, maintenance mechanics and engineers.

We don’t yet know how many US jobs will be affected by Harley-Davidson’s decision to move some production from America to Europe.

But it’s possible that the company’s base in Milwaukee, Wisconsin could be hit badly.

Wisconsin is one of the rural states that backed Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, heartened by his promise to Make America Great Again and bring jobs back home.

Harley’s announcement, though, shows that trade wars aren’t as “good and easy to win” as Trump once claimed....

It is possible, we don't know, could be hit.....

The US has over 6 million unfilled jobs so it shouldn't be an issue to find another one.

Good decision by HD. Whenever possible it makes sense to manufacture a product close to where it is being used.

Looking forward to more foreign car manufacturers joining Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Kia, BMW and Mercedes to build cars in the US for the US.

Manufacturers’ optimism hit an all-time high of 95.1%, according to the National Association of Manufacturers '(NAM) 2018 Second Quarter Outlook Survey. The was the highest rating in the group’s 20 years of issuing quarterly reports.

“This record optimism is no accident," said NAM CEO Jay Timmons. "It is fueled by the game-changing tax reform passed six months ago “Last year, manufacturers promised that we would deliver for our people and our communities if tax reform became law.

“Congress and the president delivered, and now manufacturers are keeping our promise: hiring new workers, raising wages, improving benefits, buying equipment and expanding right here in the United States. And the best part is, with manufacturers’ record-setting confidence and plans to keep hiring and growing, more good news is yet to come.”

In other words, we don’t know how much QE boosted the real economy, and we probably never will. But we have learned one very important thing about the policy — it doesn’t lead to high inflation.

Back when QE was beginning, there were widespread expectations of hyperinflation. That makes sense if you think of money as something created by the government — since inflation is a drop in the value of money, it makes sense that printing more money would reduce its value. But despite all the loud warnings, inflation never materialized.

Meanwhile, other anticipated dangers of QE, like asset bubbles and financial instability, also have quite conspicuously failed to materialize.

So although we’ll never know how much QE helps the real economy, we do know that it’s not the risk that many once believed. Monetarism may or may not help, but it probably doesn’t hurt. That’s an important lesson for future policymakers. Although QE’s day may be drawing to a close, it looks like it’s a valuable device that should remain in the central bank tool kit.

Here's twodogs in 2010 when debt mattered to him:
The GOP is more likely to nominate Mitt Romney and he should have an easy win over Obama especially if the economy retracts when higher taxes kick in this January.

Obama did better than I ever expected militarily and might have been a great president had he not saddled the country with so much debt.

Yeah, I get it: debt is bad when it’s unavoidable because a Democrat is in office; it’s good when it’s perfectly avoidable because there’s a Republican in office.

As I said, Trump is Bush II and we’re fuckec. The next mess might be too much for the Dem successor to fix.

Obama did okay and proved that QE isn't a problem if we need to use it again. Not sure why a few people think we are in trouble, there are plenty of jobs, more may be on the way and future generations will not be dependent on other countries for basic industries.

I am pleasantly surprised at how well things are going. If President Trump is able to get a Canadian style health care system in place and withdraw our troops from around the world he may well be remembered as one of the best presidents in history.

Alcoa Warrick Operations will be ready to begin aluminum smelting again this summer.

Last year the company said it would re-open three of the five potlines it shut down in its smelter operation in 2016, adding back 275 jobs at its facility along the Ohio River east of Newburgh. Company spokeswoman Kari Fluegel said the work to do so is nearing completion. "We are on track to finish up this quarter," she said.

The Warrick facility, which makes sheet aluminum for food and beverage containers, is expected to grow production 30 percent from its 2016 output by the end of 2019, Fluegel said, making the investment in restarting smelter operations there economically viable.

I will be happy with Canadian style health care and no US bases on foreign soil.

National health care would make our manufacturers even more competitive, the money spent on bases could be put into more submarines and better infrastructure in the US.

JSW Steel USA plans to invest $500 million to build a new factory in the U.S. Combined with a previous announcement that JSW will modernize an existing plant, the Indian-owned company is making a total investment of $1 billion after President Trump’s tax reform and tariffs on imported steel.

“The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward Lawrence on Thursday.

JSW Steel has agreed to acquire an Acero Junction facility in Mingo Junction, Ohio, for $80.9 million.

Through its parent company, JSW Group, it’s investing upwards of $500 million in the old Ohio steel plant that was built in 1929, instead of constructing a new facility in India. The project is expected to generate an estimated 300 permanent jobs in a town of just 3,400 people.

“We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community,” Hritz said.

Trump is more likely to develop cold fusion than implement Canada style healthcare.

That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!

President Trump hasn't mentioned cold fusion but he has commented favorably on the advantages of Canadian and Australian health care.

Yeah, like 20 years ago when he was a moderate, back before he sold out to the far right and dementia.

The chances of Trump passing a single-payer health system are zero, but maybe not in twodog's alternative universe where lower growth is better.
