Some good news for the end of the week

Observation:  This morning’s Commerce Department report indicates the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.8% during the final quarter of 2011, for a net expansion of 1.7% in 2011.  Click here for more details, provided by a Washington Post story released earlier this hour.

Implications:   It’s always fun to end the week with a little good news, and this is that.  But any business owner, marketer or manager should enjoy this story, and then remember that the most important economic indicators come not from Washington or Wall Street, but from the consumers they serve on a daily basis.  In this age of reconciliation, most people are more focused on their household (micro) economy than the station of the national or global (macro) economy.
