Good news is a blessing to hear.  The latest report in the New York Times  states that even thought the recession is “officially over” the latest measures to spur the economy on has many forecasters and policy makers expressing optimism that the recovery will gain substantial momentum in 2011.  The growth projections for next year have been raised by economists in universities and on Wall Street.  Retail, factory orders and industrial orders have increased.  The unemployment, while still high is on a downward trend. consumer confidence is getting stronger, large corporations are reporting healthy profits and the Dow Jones industrial average reached a two year high this week.  May this upward trend continue well on into 2011.  Merry Christmas and a very peaceful New Year to all.
