Nelson Rising's Economic Outlook February 2017

There is a Chinese proverb: “May you live in interesting times”. Whether it is the consistent drip of 140 character tweets from our new President or the ever changing rumors of how the Republican-led Congress will deal with a change in tax code, there is no doubt that we are now living in interesting times. However, as a veteran of over 40 years of investing and operating real estate, there are some things that I look to consistently which help me feel like I have a little more control over our investment decisions. In the spirit of trying to use facts as we know them, rather than conjecture and hyperbole, I outline sources that I look to for information and give you my take in this quarterly Economic Outlook.
