My gross output (GO) statistic for the fourth quarter was released today by the federal government. Here’s what it showed:

U.S. economic activity continued to slow dramatically in fourth-quarter 2015, threatening recession. As a whole, the growth rate of the economy was anemic, almost flat, for 2015. This is why the Fed has aggressively been pumping new money into the system. The money supply has been growing at 7-9% rate in the past few months to stimulate the economy. The Fed’s easy-money policy has resulted in higher stock and gold prices.

Gross output (GO), the new measure of U.S. economic activity published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), showed that spending throughout the economy declined slightly in the fourth quarter of 2015. And my Skousen B2B Index -- a measure of business spending throughout the supply chain -- now has fallen two quarters in a row. Both data points suggest a mild business recession as we entered 2016.

Based on data released today by the BEA and adjusted to include all sales throughout the production process, nominal GO fell 0.6% in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to the 2.3% growth rate of the third quarter. Adjusted GO was $39.0 trillion in the fourth quarter, more than double Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $18.2 trillion. Nominal GDP actually rose 2.3% in the fourth quarter. When GO declines relative to GDP, it’s usually a sign of recession.

Deflationary pressure on prices continued in the fourth quarter. So in real terms, the adjusted GO growth rate rose slightly, by 0.8%.

GO and GDP are complementary statistics in national income accounting. GO is an attempt to measure the “make” economy; i.e., total economic activity at all stages of production, similar to the “top line” (revenues/sales) of an accounting statement. In April 2014, the BEA began to measure GO on a quarterly basis along with GDP.

In turn, GDP is an attempt to measure the “use” economy, i.e., the value of finished goods and services ready to be used by consumers, business and government. GDP is similar to the “bottom line” (gross profit) of an accounting statement, which determines the “value added” or the value of final use.

Is Your Portfolio Hillary-Proof?
Whether you’re ready for it or not, the shocking truth is that Hillary Clinton could very well become the next President of the United States. One economist has been researching this possibility since she first announced she was running, and his findings have pointed to a fallout that will devastate most individual investors.

But there is a silver lining… this same research also uncovered seven moves you need to make now not only protect your portfolio, but profit from a potential Hillary presidency. Click here now to learn which two sectors will be decimated, and which five are set to explode in the event of another President Clinton.

GO and GDP are complementary aspects of the economy, but GO does a better job of measuring total economic activity and the business cycle, and demonstrates that business spending is more significant than consumer spending. By using GO data, we see that consumer spending is actually only about a third of economic activity, not two-thirds, which is often reported by the media. As the chart above demonstrates, business spending is in fact almost twice the size of consumer spending in the U.S. economy.

I’ll have more to report on GO on my website, www.mskousen.com.

Maxims of Wall Street Almost Sold Out

At the Investment U conference last week, Alex Green and I (both past chairmen of Investment U) enjoyed a popular “Duel of Financial Gurus.” During the duel, Alex Green told the audience, “The Maxims of Wall Street is a classic, and should be THE reference bible for all investors. It distills the wisdom of the ages of all the great financial gurus, from J.P. Morgan to Warren Buffett.”

You Blew It!
More Americans Having 'Tattoo Regret'
By Mark Skousen

“Tattoos are like a metaphor for life. We all make mistakes. Sometimes I look at some of the tattoos I have and say, ‘Yeah, I have to live with that the rest of my life.’”

-- J. J. Redick, Los Angeles Clippers guard

I’m not a big fan of tattoos. I don’t think I’ve seen a tattoo yet on an NBA player that I thought looked cool. Most of the time, I think, “did he forget to shower?”

When I see young people with tattoos all over their arms, legs or bodies, I want to go up to them and say, “At what point in your life did you want to advertise to the whole world how crazy you are?”

Not surprisingly, a growing number of people are regretting getting a tattoo. Currently, 17% have tattoo regret, and that number is rising. The older you get, the more you realize what a mistake it was to get a tattoo. When I was growing up, the only people with tattoos seemed to be navy veterans who apparently got their tattoos when they were half drunk.

When a young person thinks of having a tattoo, too bad there’s not a parent around to ask them, “Would you want to wear the same T-shirt every day?”
