A rising economic tide lifts everyone’s boats

Don’t worry about Trump’s finances. Everyone’s investments have done well with the healthier economy. Rejoice that the economy is improved!

A dislike of President Trump shows ignorance about what Federal Reserve rate increases do: They increase homebuyers’ interest rates to begin with, gas prices at the pump, etc! And it will slow the economy’s growth. Rates have to increase, but it’s a delicate art of timing for it. So far, the booming economy has helped everyone, regardless of color, ethnicity and social status. As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats.

Healthy businesses grow, hire and reward workers. A healthy economy also makes us feel generous towards others — a win-win all around.
