Current economic conditions (GOOD NEWS!!)


  • The U.S. deficit will be reduced to $642 billion, from $1.1 trillion last year, because of a 15 percent jump in revenue from last year with the economy’s expansion, the expiration of a payroll-tax cut, and tax rates rising for married couples earning more than $450,000.
  • The unemployment rate fell to 7.5 percent in April from 7.9 percent at the beginning of the year.
  • The stock market has reached record levels, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) rising almost 16 percent this year.
