Exports Through November 2013 – the Dismal Failure Continues January 9, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Time for the monthly update on US exports.
Now I know that you know, even without looking, that exports aren’t even close to reaching the President’s goal of doubling them within 5 years (i.e., by the beginning of 2015).
And I know that you know that exports were a key part of the President’s economic recovery plan. Essential, even.
And I know that you know that our tepid “recovery” can be squarely laid at the feet of the President’s ineffectual at best, counterproductive at their all-too-common worst, stupid economic initiatives.
So why do I belabor the point? Because once you’ve accepted these things, looking at this graph of export data (from BEA) is kind of funny.
Though it does hurt to laugh.
