Surging Confidence by Consumers, Small Business, and Big Business
The change in US presidential administration seems to be signalling a significant boost in confidence toward the future at all levels of the productive sectors of the economy.
Consumer Confidence Surges Most in Ten Years
The IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index, a leading national poll on consumer confidence, has reached its highest level since November 2006. It gained 0.8 points, or 1.5%, in January, posting a reading of 55.6, versus 54.8 in December 2016. __ Yahoo Finance
Small Business Confidence Surges Most Since 1980
Optimism among America’s small businesses soared in December by the most since 1980 as expectations about the economy’s prospects improved dramatically in the aftermath of the presidential election.
The National Federation of Independent Business’s index jumped 7.4 points last month to 105.8, the highest since the end of 2004, from 98.4. While seven of the 10 components increased in December, 73 percent of the monthly advance was due to more upbeat views about the outlook for sales and the economy, the Washington-based group said. __ Bloomberg
Big US Business Gung-ho on Prospects of Better Opportunities
“Business is optimistic because we see a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enact major reforms that could transform the American economy from a low-growth to a high-growth economy,” Donohue said in a largely buoyant address. __ Marketwatch
Prospects for North American Hydrocarbon Industries Surge
New Oil Drilling Techniques Signal New Surge in Oil Production
North American oil production is beginning to surge on the back of more efficient technologies and higher market prices for product.
In some cases, the amount of oil produced per dollar spent on drilling is going to more than double. There are significant chunks of the petroleum-producing parts of the United States where $40 oil will not be a barrier to drilling and new production.
Eventually—in a few years—these techniques will begin to show up in wells around the world, and there will be an explosion of oil. Even as many oilfields dry up, there will be new fields developed from previously unprofitable sources. __ John Mauldin in Forbes
Natural gas sales are also likely to surge as a new US administration approves new pipelines and natural gas export terminals on the coasts. This will be good for both Canada and the US. Mexico will experience a benefit from new US policies as well, since blossoming Mexican industries will need an ever-growing quantity of US and Canadian natural gas to run the growing Mexican manufacturing and industrial sector.
Coal is likewise due to experience new growth, due to a relaxation of the unconstitutional overreach of Obama’s rogue EPA. Far from being an oxymoron, “clean coal” will provide a significant part of the bridge to an energy future based on advanced nuclear technologies.
Sperm to Surge Under a Trump Administration
A rising confidence in the male population will correlate with rising testosterone levels, higher sperm counts, and better quality of sperm.
Sperm quality has traditionally been associated with testosterone levels, where a high sperm count equals a high level of testosterone and vice versa. If the hypothesis that testosterone is a deciding factor for death rates holds true, it would make sense that high sperm quality equals a low death rate, according to Jensen. __ Based on Study by Dr. Tina Kold at U.

And this will be good news for the women of America, since we know that high quality semen is a natural anti-depressant for women.
Until recently, scientists believed that its sole purpose was to nourish and protect sperm on their way to fertilization. But now it appears that semen spurs ovulation and makes women feel happier. That might explain why many women report increased interest in sex around the time of ovulation.
The chain of logic proceeds as follows: A rise in male confidence spurs a surge in testosterone, which leads to improvements in quality and quantity of male semen. This high quality semen induces better mood in the female population and leads to more efficient ovulation. The combination of improved mood and more efficient fertility leads to a natural boost in demographics.
Surging Confidence, Energy Production, Sperm Production, and Fertility
It looks as if the election of President Trump may have several significant benefits to North American society, contrary to the doomsaying of the “spoiled child depravity contingent” of leftists in media, academia, Hollywood, foundations, and other parts of the dysfunctional loud mouth sectors of society. George Soros, for example, lost about $1 billion betting on catastrophe following the November 2016 US elections. Sore losers should learn when to abandon failed fantasies and rejoin reality — before they squander their entire lives’ work.
“This new administration hates weak, unproductive, socialist people and policies, and it admires strong, can-do, profit makers.”
Weak, unproductive socialists have been setting policy for decades now — despite what they may have called themselves in public. No wonder confidence has shrunk, fertility has declined, jobs have fled, and a destructive “Carter-style malaise” has settled over much of North America for so long. And now, we hope it is time for North America to emerge from this long-standing malaise into a more confident age of expansion and abundance.
