Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 146 -- Corporate Profits.
Corporate Economic Profits, Share Of GDP-
Yet another strengthening economic indicator (how many of these do we need to have before the case reaches its critical mass?):
Of course, that's a bit of an overstatement and an oversimplification, but think about it. How could profits have lagged at the time when the economy was roaring? How could the economy have been at its strongest, in the history of the world, without producing increased profits?
And notice how in the current economy, corporations are profiting more, commensurate with the pace of economic growth. Productivity is up. GDP growth is up. Jobs are being added. Inflation is relatively low, even with high energy prices. Profits are up. Yet some Democrats think they're going to run on the weak economy in 2006 and beyond?
Good luck with that.
John Kyl with more on the strong American economy.

Will, the NYT and exempt media simply cannot trumpet Bush's economy. If they do, Hillary just can't win in '08.
The MSM's planned strategy of denigrating the Republican economy during the '08 election won't work if it's on record supporting the same economy 3 years earlier.
Of course, they could say Rove used his magic powers to plant the positive stories on their pages...

The Liberal Left will whine that these figures confirm their contention that the Bush White House had been in the pockets of the evil corporations and that the profits shown here are obscene, lining the pockets of Bush's fat cat cronies. You can't win with the whiners...but this datum is excellently worthy of saving.
