4. That s an important report. Should help the President.
Based upon just my personal observations, economic activity seemed to have picked up dramatically since early September. I am seeing a lot of private home refurbishment in communities which appeared dead. Haven't seen many new hoes, but the refurbishment is equal to a couple of housing starts. I am also seeing road repair and government facilities projects. In addition, my grocer is always crowded and the food donation baskets are fuller than I have noticed them, so people have enough money to pay not only their own grocery bills but also donate to charity.
