CNNmoney10.31.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsIt’s the economy, stupid,” said James Carville in one of his most famous lines as President Bill Clinton’s adviser. Sadly, Carville also gets credit for the infamous “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find,” line too. President Ronald Reagan asked a pocket book issue too. Are you better off? On another day when the markets recovered, CNBC has two new videos that spotlight aspects of those questions, and that will be our featured report this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



It goes without saying that more jobs, higher wages, means more people can buy manufactured homes.


While that may seem like it is ‘stating the obvious,’ that is a common point raised in the financial reports of publicly trade manufactured home producers.


The screen captures are from one of the CNBC videos posted.  Keep in mind, that along with much of the mainstream media, CNBC tends to be negative about President Trump and his policies.  So, when they grudgingly admit that the 45th president deserves a considerable amount of credit for the good economic numbers, that is something that ought not to be ignored.  It’s a little like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY-D) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) saying, yes, the president was right in his economic policies.

Per CNBC this evening…

  • Wages and salaries rose 3.1 percent in the third quarter, the biggest increase in a decade, according to the Labor Department.
  • Overall compensation costs were up 2.8 percent, ahead of Wall Street expectations.
  • Wages have been the missing piece in the economic recovery, though the Fed has been raising rates to guard against future inflationary pressures.

What CNBC isn’t quite saying is this.  The president’s policies are interlaced on several levels.

  • The trade deals, such as the new NAFTA-replacing USMCA, are designed to fuel American businesses, and thus is good for job demand, and wage growth. That’s the law of supply and demand at work.
  • Stopping or slowing illegal immigration is another way of boosting the earnings of American workers. Many manufactured home professionals know that illegals workers from Latin American nations are common in construction and related work, including in MHVille.
  • The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,
  • The Regulatory Rollbacks,
  • Plus, other ‘American business, American Jobs, First’ policies

are good for workers.

Share what you learn with others, and vote wisely.  While the Senate seems safe – and the GOP should pick up seats there – the alternative in the House of Representatives is to see Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, and Maxine Waters as House Financial Services Committee Chairperson.
