What was going on in the 2020 stock market and the U.S. economy and what they don’t tell you.
Why is the Stock Market Up?
Why is the Economy Bouncing back?
Why is Manufacturing Coming Back to the U.S.???
I will address above questions in this article and make the connections for you on the different topics. My background of over 37 years in Global Marketing gives me a different perspective on the economy and business in general.
In 2030, in 2050, a lot of Economists are making their predictions known to us when in reality they have been consistently Wrong on most if not all their predictions the last few years On Monthly Basis. Why? I have to specialize in the prediction industry and revisit this question, what really matters is the end result. Sadly, the Economists failed to recognize the International Markets dynamics and their impact positively on our economy and stock market. They have been very limited in their outlook & vision of Global Business or simply ignored it.
I would like to share with you a snapshot of what is happening Globally:
- The Economy in China is in shambles. Supply Chain Completely BROKE.
- The EU is in crisis and trying to salvage their economies. Germany cannot support them; France is in recession & the U.K. is Out of the EU.
- South America who relies on Brazil to lead them is in disaster mode.
- The Gulf Region, that is commonly referred to as the Middle East (which is over 1,000 miles away) is basically broke.
They cannot survive at $ 40.00 a barrel of oil.
The Only Oil Producing country making a profit at this price is Saudi Arabia, all others are losing with no exception.
Saudi’s Economy is Smaller than Wal-Mart’s Revenues, that is a fact.
- Russia plans their budget at $ 115.00 a barrel of oil, which may not happen any time in the near or distant future. Bearing in mind that the Russian Economy is Smaller than Texas’ Economy. Again, a Fact.
The above gives you a clear idea on the reality of economies today.
The U.S. is the ONLY Country Globally that has the largest Economy with the most Solid Foundation. The Economy is based on multiple Strong sectors such as Energy, Finance, Transportation, Hospitality, Housing, Retail and so on. Meaning, we do not rely only on Oil such as Russia/Saudi/Venezuela—-, or Only on Export such as China, Japan & EU.
Coming back to the Stock Market, I like to keep things simple, Why is the stock market going up? Because our Economy is in much better shape than other countries Globally, it has a Strong Foundation, it is the ONLY Safe Haven left Globally to Invest In. Very simple and yet Very Powerful.
The Economy is Bouncing Back Sharply because of two key factors: Consumer Confidence + Spending and Manufacturing. Yes, Manufacturing.
People are astonished when I tell them Lots of Products they buy are Made in USA.
OK, see below, as disclosed on the FTC site:
“U.S. content must be disclosed on automobiles and textile, wool, and fur products. There’s no law that requires most other products sold in the U.S. to be marked or labeled Made in USA or have any other disclosure about their amount of U.S. content. However, manufacturers and marketers who choose to make claims about the amount of U.S. content in their products must comply with the FTC’s Made in USA policy.”
In other words, Most Products you buy such as Food, HBA (Health & Beauty Aids) are made in the U.S. Based on above, Companies are not required by law to state Made in U.S.A. on their Products, however, if a Product is Imported they Have To state Country of Origin or where it was made.
FYI, when the Label simply states name and address of company, it means it is Made in U.S.A., when it says Distributed by without saying where it was made, it means Made in U.S.A. Companies Failed to Market this Great Feature and Emphasize their products are made Locally and with Pride.
Towels and Toilet Paper are Made in the U.S., the supply chain was overwhelmed due to the sudden high demand that emptied plants and shelves unexpectedly. Inventory is back to normal level.
A large majority of Food Products you buy in the supermarket are Made in U.S.A. and that is why they were replenished fairly quickly.
The Result is: Manufacturing sector increasing and will rise rapidly.
Lower Energy cost contributed to lower Production cost and Higher Manufacturing.
Large Companies are Arrogant and do not Care to even tell you that “Made in USA” is a mark of Quality and Distinction Globally. In my years of Exporting, Clients Globally bought blindly Products Made in USA because they trusted the Quality and Standards in our Products. Again, A Fact.
Today, when you shop, I suggest you pay attention to all the New Brands you never heard of that are on the shelf. They are Local Small U.S. Companies that are Stating “Made in USA” on their Products with Pride. This is the beginning of the Return of Manufacturing to the U.S.
