Through downsizing, layoffs, conolidations, etc., it is quite feasible for corporate profits and the stock market to remain vibrant while the nation's economy is sour. Your statement to the contrary proves that you do not understand this and mistakingly equate Wall Street with the economy.

Your adolescent rant and personal attacks do nothing to prove otherwise.

Looking at the post WWII recessions, the US Stock Market usually turns up six to nine months before the recession has ended.

How in the world do you measure the economy? Let me guess, by the number of new train systems being built that will have to be taxpayer subsidized in perpetuity.

Possible, but can you give an example when that occurred?

Here's the important point of the article.

Not only that, but Reagan's policies appear to have reversed the increasing unemployment of the 1970s and reduced it from a high of 9.7 percent during the recession to a mere 5.5 percent

So, it looks like inflation decreased and employment increased, oh yeah, the stock market went up as well. So were you criticizing Reagan's performance?
