“As an aside, the U.S. Commerce Department also released state-by-state income data yesterday for 1Q and found that personal income deflated in 37 states. That is a very generous assessment since whatever income there was reflected government benefits like food stamps, unemployment insurance and welfare.   Income derived from the private sector — remember that part of the economy? —  actually contracted in all 50 states.

Whatever shoot that is, it definitely is not green.”
