There to me are very few visible problems in the economy. Stocks are somewhat overvalued when you see earnings have decreased and price of stock has increased that is more or less an excessive currency problem. That can best be described as a crypto coin trade where now I have ten times my money where do I put it. Of course there is the unlucky CEO who see their stock is going up while their earnings are going down. They want to say to me please park your profits elsewhere.

Unemployment looks very much like it did in the early seventies very little concern there.

Production prices have increased but the increase seems to be service costs. ( I have not checked commodity markets yet) That means our inflation is apt to increase in wages yet in current dollar terms wages have not gone up considerably. Actually the trickle up is preventing our economy from being overheated. If we enter a trickle down period I hope it does not affect the non trickle part of our economy. That is like saying why restaurants are not doing as well as they did service costs are chewing up dollars leaving less to use however we choose. People are adjusting where they are putting their income.

Health care costs are increasing as all know.

Future concerns
Housing costs so calif increased rapidly but it looks like sales are slowing down and that could mean no concern self correct. Problem with increase of interest is it does halt undo inflation somewhat but can create deflation in business as increased costs must be met by bottom line.

Consumer debt has increased to 26% again hard to judge for people use credit cards far more than they use to and that creates debt. Throw in education costs and it could be close to no debt.

Excess currency creates inflation without business growth That is my main concern currency creation that does nothing for the entire economy. .
