I would say it has been a remarkable year, with natural as well as man-made
Economically, the U.S. has got into a good, positive swing, with creation of jobs,
improving retail and internet sales, a slight uptick in the Housing Market, which
will probably increase in momentum as more jobs and activity are created.
Europe could also become positive, once moderate budget cuts and wealth creation
activities are in place. In this regard, I get a feeling that Spain under Premier Mariano Rajoy will delight his people, with activities that will boost their economy.
I wish you laughter and good cheer, and Happy New Year.
