One of the resources that we use to keep abreast of what is happening in the financial markets is a company called First Trust. Their Chief Economist is a gentleman by the name of Brian Westbury. I have had the opportunity to meet Brian on a couple of occasions and I have always found him to be very well grounded and thoughtful in his views.

Below is a link to a piece that he sent out today. While the first part of the piece is does get into a bit of numbers and "economist-speak" I think the last few lines that I have highlighted are worth noting and keeping in the back of your mind as we begin this Thanksgiving weekend.

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
