"Percentages can be tricky. That is all I am. GonNa say from American public media. This is marketplace in Los Angeles Rozelle Tuesday today the twenty. Sixth of Megan is always to have you along everybody. We begin today with some unexpectedly. Good economic news. We'll have reaction in that good news and then we will have a reality check on that reaction to that good news or as we like to call it on this program about business in the economy context so to get to the point. Y'All or feeling a little bit better about things it seems. We learned this morning from the good people at the Conference Board Business Research Group. We learned that consumer confidence in this economy is up of this month after tanking in April the reaction to that good news because it is good news prompted this reaction from White House economic adviser Larry cudlow on Fox News. This morning. The third quarter could be the fastest growing quarter in. Us history. The whole second half is going to be very strong and here comes the reality check on their reaction to that good news first of all let us remember. We are in the second quarter right now. April may June where the percentage decline in Gross Domestic Product is expected to be epic worst ever retail sales. Were down last month. The unemployment rate is upward. Hasn't been since the Great Depression and they're still. Oh so much uncertainty about what's going to happen next now. Why am I saying? This economists. Megan Green a senior fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School helps us out with that. For example if you say An economy is running at a level of ten. It's producing ten things. Let's say and there's a fifty percent decline then that brings it down to five okay but then and let's say the next month. Actually things go really well. And you've got a fifty percent increase. Sounds great right. It's from a lower numbers so that doesn't bring you back up to ten at actually only brings you back up to seven point five. So the percentage changes can be really misleading. Mr Kudlow this morning it has to be pointed out and as you said is talking about Q. Three July August and September. So I think that as the economy opens up we should see the economic data improve and depending on how you're looking at that data it will either improve a little or it will improve a lot for instance. The Congressional Budget Office figures. There will be a better than five percent increase. Gdp growth in that third quarter. Mr Kudlow was talking about but to review a lot of that. Depends on what you're comparing it to now. Why are we telling you this? I realized that's the second time we've asked this. But this matters that third quarter. Gdp number is going to come out just five days before the election. I think the Republicans will come out and say look we've got the best GDP data ever And we've got the best job state at ever looking at percentage changes in. They'll be right actually. Technically that's true but at the same time the Democrats will be saying we'll but we're still really far below. We were before this crisis even started. And there's a lot of room for improvement and they'll also be right and show. I think people will be getting these mixed messages on what the state of the economy is in. Actually both of them will be correct. You just need to learn how to read the data at understand what it all means or as once again we like to say around. These parts context the context on Wall Street. Today was virus virus the details when we do the numbers..

Trump's one time campaign chairman is underway in fact jury has already been seated in opening statements are expected today ABC's alley Rogan is following the story. And, has stepped away. From the court proceedings for, a moment to talk to us live on the KOMO Newsline good afternoon Hey Rick. Will in the interest of a real news I want to disclose that I am well in my corner office at our Washington DC news bureau the Accessibility inside the courtroom is incredibly difficult so I. Have colleagues who are there they're the ones transmitting information and I'm here to bring it to you figuratively you've stepped away. From, the court proceedings for a moment how surprising alley. Is that a jury has already. Been seated in a big trial that we've been anticipating. For some time now it's. Pretty surprising except perhaps not for this judge judge, T S Ellis his courtroom, it's known as a rocket docket for the quick way he speeds through these things he is not a man who waits his time. Getting new things into. Place but still the fact that it was only about four hours from the beginning of this trial that they had a a jury, seated that is quite unusual. They, received, some questions about whether they knew anyone in the. Department of Justice and in. An only in Washington DC sort of result eight people raise their hands, so Definitely a DC crowd and it's perhaps surprising that he. Was able to pick twelve people so quickly who may have been very familiar with the metaphor case Manafort is facing eighteen. Counts of financial crimes allegations that he laundered at least. Sixty million bucks from consulting work. So what are we expecting to hear in at least. The initial days of the. Trial so they're going to be laying out the, facts we know that the, prosecution has upwards of four hundred pages of documents that they want to present as part of this case they're going to be they. Say they have a. Very strong case against Manafort not really related to Russia even though the charges against him a road out of the Mueller investigation they, are looking at allegations of. Money Laundering keeping money in offshore. Accounts and tax fraud that relate to massive payments Manafort guy when he was consulting for you, Ukrainian political party so it was actually well before the Trump campaign. Even began but these are revelations that arose as a result of the Mueller investigation and they have the leeway to follow the money have you heard any word about maybe Manafort. Cutting a deal before this all ends that's what everyone is looking out for because what? What the judge actually brought up at the beginning. Of these pretrial proceedings was the notion that this case really isn't about the Bank and tax fraud. It's about getting Manafort to, potentially cut a deal. And then turn into a cooperating witness in the larger, Russia investigation you know the, the prosecutors would never admit to that and certainly they are saying these. Are actual crimes that we want to Prove that he. Is guilty of but everyone, is looking to see whether he might cut a deal. He has been in prison. He'd been in solitary. Confinement so the circumstances certainly are unpleasant for. Him. He's held out this long though so it's anybody's, guess as to whether he's going to cut a deal eventually brings continue, to move along very quickly Ellie thanks as always Ali Rogan.
