Bill Conerly of Conerly Consulting sends out a monthly newsletter that I always find insightful. He is also a regular contributor to Forbes. He helps cut through the noise and we all know there has been plenty of noise with the investment and oil markets jumpy, the presidential primaries on full tilt and let’s toss in an opening on the Supreme Court.
These are five graphics I pulled from the March newsletter. He still expects moderate growth, which the past two years came in at just above 2% increases. Employment rebounded in February. Overall steady, and we expect the pace of growth to accelerate as we move toward summer.
