    Generally when rates are suppressed that is an indicator the economy is not doing well. However there are plenty of reasons to believe the US economy is recovering. We are within the normalized GDP growth range of 2-3%, and comparatively the US is doing much better than many other nations in the world in terms of growth.

     

    Credit Suisse recently provided some good insight on the topic and they remain optimistic. I'd be more worried about the Eurozone than anything else.

    No maybe enough are finally realizing that energy drives the economy/inflation and now that energy is plentiful there is nothing to drive inflation, therefore no need to raise rates to contain it. Back to the 50's/60's

    Spikes in oil prices have a severe net negative effect on its associated economies.
