How Is Household Wealth Doing Under POTUS Trump?

September 22nd, 2017

RisingFalling$500BillPixabayDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsThe Federal Reserve has released research for the U.S. second quarter performance.

Snapshots from their household wealth research, per Bloomberg.

  • Net worth for households and non-profit groups rose by $1.7t q/q, or 1.8%, to $96.2t, according to Fed’s financial accounts report, previously known as flow of funds survey
  • Value of financial assets, including stocks and pension fund holdings, increased by $1.2t
  • Household debt increased at a 3.7% annual rate in the second quarter
  • Household real-estate assets rose by $508b; owners’ equity as share of total real-estate holdings up to 58.4% from 57.9%


As the Daily Business News has previously reported:

  • Stocks have hit record highs
  • Personal incomes are rising
  • Consumer and business confidence are also up since President Trump took office.


That doesn’t mean that all is wine and roses.

There have been numerous warning signs that the Daily Business News has reported as well.  The Fed’s stated intention of “unwinding” years of Obama era QEs is another risk on the horizon.

The need for tax reform, to repeal and replace ObamaCare and more are all measures that could continue the U.S. economic recovery.
