September Economic and Markets

I wanted to follow up my previous email with some thoughts on the markets and economy.  As Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida (as the most powerful Atlantic storm ever recorded) and after Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area, people are understandably skittish about major weather related events.  Even though it has been a banner year in the markets, I feel like many people are still very skittish about the markets and economy, seemingly just waiting for the next big financial hurricane.  Let's take a closer look at some of that.
