2016 was a year of surprises with a slowdown in China, the shock decision by voters in the United Kingdom to exit the EU, and the election of a political outsider to be the next President of the United States of America. Despite these developments creating apprehension and threatening to derail the US economy job growth continued, consumer confidence increased, stock markets reached record highs,
wage growth began to accelerate, and it was another year of steady (if unspectacular) economic performance. Perhaps it is true that whatever doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, in which case the US economy must be in fantastic health.
