The U.S. economy continues to do well.  It is stable and has proven to be resilient to domestic and global news events.  It continues to slowly recover and, according to most economists, should continue to do so through 2017 and into 2018.  The employment situation continues to improve; the unemployment rate is 4.7% and remains near [...]
