Economic Trends: Confidence Boomed After the Election. The Economy Hasn’t.

President Trump said on Twitter on Sunday that the stock market was at an “all-time high” and that unemployment was at its lowest level in years, both of which are true (he added that wages would start going up, which is certainly possible).Continue reading the main storyBut in overall measures of economic activity, the expansion looks much as it has for years, with steady growth of around 2 percent. The Trump economy so far looks an awful lot like the Obama economy.For all of business executives’ apparent enthusiasm, the nation is adding jobs more slowly in 2017 than it did in 2016, and investment spending by businesses is growing modestly; new orders for capital goods are up only 0.7 percent so far in 2017.Consumers’ spending was 2.7 percent higher in the first four months this year than in the same period of 2016, adjusted for inflation — which is slower than the 3.2 percent year-over-year gain at the end of 2016.And while the stock market has been surging and the Federal Reserve has raised short-term interest rates, long-term Treasury bond yields remain very low, suggesting that traders do not buy the idea that growth is poised to accelerate […]

The C.B.O. Score: A Few Bright Spots for Republicans. The Rest Can Be Scored as Grim.

It said the legislation would increase deductibles, make insurance more skimpy and destabilize markets. Average premiums would go down largely because the insurance they would pay for would become thinner and less valuable. Older people more likely to need insurance would be priced out of the market.Continue reading the main storyPresident Trump asked the Senate to write a bill that was less “mean” than a version passed by the House last month.

After Puerto Rico’s Debt Crisis, Worries Shift to Virgin Islands

In the Northern Mariana Islands, the depleted public pension fund was wreaking such fiscal havoc in 2012 that the territory declared it bankrupt, but the case was thrown out. The government then tried cutting all retirees’ pensions 25 percent, but the retirees have been fighting the cuts, and the fund is nearly exhausted anyway.Even Guam, which enjoys the economic benefit of several large American military installations, has been having qualms about its debt after Puerto Rico’s default.“Puerto Rico’s troubles provide a teachable moment for Guam,” said Benjamin Cruz, the speaker of the legislature, who recently helped defeat a proposal to borrow $75 million to pay tax refunds. “Spending borrowed money is too easy.”But the debt dilemma is now most acute in the Virgin Islands — the three main islands are St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John — where the government has been struggling ever since a giant refinery closed in 2012, wiping out the territory’s biggest nongovernment employer and a mainstay of its tax base.Its troubles began to snowball last July, when Puerto Rico defaulted on most of its debts.In August, Fitch downgraded the Virgin Islands’ debt to junk, citing the territory’s chronic budget deficits and habit of borrowing to plug the holes, like Puerto Rico.More downgrades followed, and in December, Standard & Poor’s dealt the territory a rare “superdowngrade” — seven notches in one fell swoop — leaving it squarely in the junk-bond realm. That scared away investors and forced it to cancel a planned bond offering in January.The failed bond deal meant there was not enough cash to pay for basic government operations in February or March. As a stopgap, the territory diverted its workers’ pension contributions.PhotoCoreen Lloyd-Adams and Shenika Freeman, registered nurses, preparing a bed in the labor and delivery unit at the Schneider Regional Medical Center in St. Thomas.

From 9/11 to Orlando, Ken Feinberg’s Alter Ego in Compensating Victims

Ms. Biros is not a lawyer. Her background is in business administration, and she doubles as the business manager for the firm. In contrast with her bigger-than-life boss, she is low-key and matter-of-fact. “Camille has a quiet reserve that does not invite a lot of casual socializing,” said Mayanne Downs, the city attorney of Orlando, Fla., who helped choose Feinberg to distribute charitable funds to victims of last year’s Pulse nightclub massacre.Continue reading the main storyIn the past 16 years, Ms. Biros has quietly handed out $15.4 billion to thousands of victims of shootings, car crashes, pollution, sexual abuse and terrorist attacks.
