As I have been speaking with clients in Cypress, I hear more and more positive things, considering the crash of 08 and the huge slow down in International Trade. The Fedx numbers do not surprise me. They are more of a indication of "bulk" shipping or "Consolidated" shipping. Put they show that the world is shipping goods in general. Across the board, International Trade is up, from the lows of the last two years. I do believe that the World is coming out of the recession, based on my contacts globally. However, the US is not. Even with Fedx reporting decent numbers...the Political Damage done by the Politicans, mainly DEMS or the last 4 years will damp'n our recovery. Unemployment will sea saw between 9.6 and 10%. We will export more jobs to the World but Export less goods. China is looking to take a stake in our Steel Industry and is making the moves. 70% of our GDP is consumption by consumers not PRODUCTION. Until we wash out WALLSTREET, wash out DC, we will continue on an slow path to hell while the rest of the world bright'ns up and recovers.
