New Year's Week Safe Harbor Statement - Part 2

The past performance of the US Economy is no indication of future results.  But these ten "good news" charts seem compelling to me.

1.  Credit provided by US Commercial Banks will continue to increase, just like their lending has in all of 2008:

2.  Unemployment during the current recession will not return to the peek rate of the Great Depression nor the recession rate of the early 1980s:

3. The Mid-Tier Banking sector will continue to be healthy, strong, and growing in numbers. (No depositors will run them)

4.  Lending Rates to Banks (Fed Funds Rate) and to consumers (Prime rates, and those indexed to prime), will continue for and extended time at unprecidented low levels.

5.  Gas and Oil Prices in 2009 will not return to their speculative peak prices of mid-2008.

Thanks today to the Federal Reserve, Celent, and CARPE DIEM for chart inspiration.
