Okay, so, I'm a plant manager for a Fortune 500 company, but I'll be honest. I don't know a great deal about much. I like black and white clear cut stuff. This one has me quite lost. Looking today; the S&P 500 and Dow Jones are absolutely at the top of their game. Higher than ever before. But there are still tons of people out of work. Outside of the Martin & Zimmerman show, the economy is still high on the government's todo list. Someone current my equation here..... Company's $$$$ is way up = sales are WAY UP/costs just got stupid low - still high unemployment by a huge chunk of the people making what's being sold = less money to spend - lower business income = record high numbers = wtf???
