Recap: Celtics Beat Hawks in Game 2, Robert Williams Explodes
"To the thing that was more interesting and remarkable off of this game. And again, I think it was I think it's hard to argue. It wasn't robbed fans. He was just so interesting. But I mean that stretch where it's basically like steel block back door make a nice pass dunk l u and like Bobby tweeted about it from the Celtics account, you know, the game went to From mildly competitive to a blowout during those Rob Williams second quarter minutes there and that was basically the ball game, but the guys just so freaking elected. He probably had like eleven fouls tonight. I think he only got called for 4 or so before he got going on the set. You just talked about he wrapped up capella and like one of the first place of the second I Tice took another fellow from him. I'm sure sure you get that and then there was a third player like wrapped up reddish. So by halftime he had six fouls, but they only call three and then by the end of the night he got away with another one. We were going re fellow there. So realistically he realistically at $8,000 I wouldn't do it. So that was the most unfortunate game and the Exact Staffing was at the start of that structure was 33 to 24 and then at the end after all his dunks and layups and Steals and box that was 51 the 37 and that was pretty much the game. Dude was awesome. And it's funny because we always talk about let's just see the Celtics just love it up there. Right just throw it to Rob and let's see what happens and then he does like the most Rob like we knew he was capable of this sort of athleticism incredible man. Like that was caught it tapped. It one-handed in his hand eye coordination is just through the roof. Yeah, like that's the kind of play where you're like, wait a minute. Like if not that it's not one of those. Okay, if he does it every single night as well change everything but like just that open opportunity if he's able to get more comfortable get these reps in man like that. It just opened my eyes to how how explosive this office could truly be when with Rob in the middle of doing what he did. He was doing everything on both ends something like he was somebody tweeted it jokingly just way to your point was like, I wonder what this offense would look like if they just robbed if they just loved it to rub on every possession, you know, it's like legit and we always joke like that but like he made it look so smooth as well. Wait a minute. Why don't we do that more often wage? And also here is you do see the other side though, the ridiculous goaltending all the files were so like absurd and he easily could have ended up taking himself out of this one and having a game. So you do see both sides of the debate here where there's just an enormous level of upside. But also these like just absurd things. He does that you just can't do out there that end up getting them home games and you only had 16 minutes in this one in the end because of all the following and mistakes and miscues. He jumped into a couple of Shooters on the three-point line and it's like you're right John there's more good than bad. But the bad is so bad like just inexcusable stuff.

Yes jim this was an exceptional quarter for mattel without best performance in years with strong consumer demand and another milestone near for the company for the second quarter in a row which have double digit sales growth without grace. The industry in gain share on a global basis but are results excited expectation on many levels with the highest fourth quarter growth in fifteen years as you said with a significant increase in profitability with a full year operating income. That was two and a half times higher than than last year. But this is not just about the quarter or the year. It's about a multi year strategy that is tracking very well which puts us on in a strong position to continue to increase profitability and etc growth. In two thousand twenty one and beyond what i liked about it but these were all fantastic numbers but you told me one day jim this company which has terrible cash flow can make fortunes on everything that it does put out so when barbie has a plus eighteen percent quarter number one toy property globally in twenty twenty doll- but boy you're making a lot more money off each barbie even though they're more interesting fascinating diverse inclusive than any of the line.

Why CMOs Get Fired: Results Do Not Equal No Results Plus An Excuse
"Do not equal no results plus an excuse one of things. I love about sales by way of example is sales is pretty binary. Yeah they're make your number you miss your number or exceed your number and in sales if you miss your number couple of quarters in a row two quarters out of four you just gotta start being worried about your job and if you're a ceo. Certainly ceos of public companies. Don't get to miss very many quarters. And even if you're a private company you don't wanna be missing your numbers and so at the end of the quarter. The ceo has to stand up and tell the world and investors. How the company did that quarter and the interesting thing. If you're a public company is wall street doesn't give a shit why you missed the numbers. So if you're not he hitting or beating your numbers every quarter. They don't care. It's like the like a kid that sticks us their fingers in the net. We're not listening. They're just gonna tank your stock and if you're going you're going into the penalty box for a two minute minor and if it was a really big miss it'll be a five minute major. Those are hockey terms. If you're not familiar with hockey and so as a ceo you live and die by the numbers every quarter and as a head of sales chief revenue officer vp assails Whatever whatever whatever title is head of sales That's true too and the reality is that should be true in marketing as well so results do not equal no results plus excuse and i knew that i was getting somewhere in my life in terms of training myself to produce results when i didn't even give a shit about my own excuses so when you can't stand your own excuses for For not producing results. You're probably getting somewhere okay. So now this sort of leads us to the question. Okay so what. What are the marketing results that matter because there's lots of things that marketing do you could say. Oh we build a new website that that that's a result it might matter. It might not matter but it's definitely a result so let's talk about the results that matter i think at the highest level. There's only three things that marketing organizations should be focused on number one design and dominate category. That matters number to drive revenue near term mid and longterm and number three create enduring value as measured by market cap or company valuation. We wanna be creating the most valuable company in a category. That matters okay. So let's just hit those three things again number. One design dominated a category. That matters number to drive. Revenue and number three create enduring value as measured by company value market cap valuation and ultimately our objective is to become the most valuable company in the category. That's how you know you're the category queen now. If you focused on just those three results it can be very clarifying on a number of dimensions. And i'll get to that in a sec. Let's talk about why those three things matter so much number one design dominate category. That matters i think that is the seminal be hag the seminal focus of the entire executive team and frankly company itself and if your company's not focused on that i don't know what you're doing number to drive revenue you know there's a lot of cmo's who get all wrapped around the axle about leads or sales off the website or this or that or the other look creating leads driving revenue in the business. These are not hard things you got to go. Do them the work that the doing of the work is real work. But it's not rocket surgery So if you need to drive revenue you probably need traffic to your website. So go to the traffic store and buy some and get really good at converting traffic into customers. And there's a million marketing podcasts and books and and all sorts of tools and tricks and tips we can do to drive revenue but the bottom line is as marketers. We have to be illu air. Wars and ground wars the high level strategic steph and the ground level revenue tactical stuff in the truth. Is you gotta do both. It's not an either or it's a both and legendary. Cmo's particularly when you start your new job. go to the driving revenue. I if you want to score points internally drive some revenue sit down with your head of sales. You're ceo and say what do we need to do to create massive revenue upside problems in this company and get busy on that if you get overly focused on the strategic particularly early on in your tenures cmo. You're probably in for deep shit so design and dominate a category that matters that's the medical driving revenue if there's no revenue the medical won't matter. We need to put food on the family. As george w bush said so put food on the family legendary. Cmo's drive revenue and then enduring value. This is also the objective of the entire executive team but marketing needs to be focused on it. We want to be the most valuable company over a long period of time in a category that matters and We're the category queen of that Category all right so these things are very clarifying because you can look at any execution any activity any investment Any new hire that you're doing in marketing and ask yourself the question. Does this one design and dominated new category that matters to drive revenue and three create enduring value. And if it doesn't don't do it stop doing it. Just don't fuck do it. now. I've sat in the cmo chair. I know there's a lot of things that are distracting. I think the cmo gets pushed and pulled in ways that some other c. level executives do not and so there's a couple things i'll you to number one. Marketing is not an internal service bureau. This idea that marketing has internal customers. I'll marketings here. Just depart the business You know sales our customer. That's insanity marketing is the business. It doesn't support the business now. Yes marketing does need to work with sales. Es marketing does need to work with engineering and product development and product management and so forth of course and in that context every department needs to work with every other department but if we are at the beck and call of these other departments and they ring the bell and we salivate then. We're going to be in a constant state of stimulus response so be very very careful about allowing yourself to get turned into an internal service bureau. That's one Another one is a lot of marketers. Cmo's even ceo's get very focused on the competition. Let's say the competition announces some cool new thing they do so they re a bunch of money or they launch a new product or whatever it is people get very focused on the competition. They start talking about the competition. You don't want that shit in your head the more you talk about the competition internally or god forbid sternly the worse off. You're going to be now. I'm not saying you should be ignorant about what they're doing. I'm not saying that at all but you don't want them living in your head rent free. You want to live in their head rent free. So don't be overly focused. Be smart. Be savvy be knowledgeable but not overly focused on competition another area. We get distracted. A lot in marketing is typically The cmo and the leaders of the marketing organization get a lot of help. Because everybody's marketing expert. Everybody saw an ad The super bowl. They thought was awesome. And they wanna tell us about it or they see something that someone else is doing in the text or email that thing and they say oh. We should do that. We should do this and we should do that. And so marketing. I think gets a lot more help the. Cfo doesn't get that much saying help. In air quotes right the. Cfo does not get that much help about like how to close the quarter. All right she's in charge. She does it and You know the head of engineering isn't emailing the cfo. Saying this is how she she should closed. Quarters books whereas as the head of marketing we get those emails a lot and so don't forget everybody thinks they're an expert and they're

"They'll say, it's the second. It's only for the wealthy and businesses and workers aren't benefiting crunch, frankly is false. The Nancy Pelosi crumbs argument, right? And and and also they're going to say that the deficit has exploded, and so that will come back to haunt. So. So that's going to be the nature of this debate. I guess the question is, is that going to turn off enough people so that they think this is a sugar high? I think the Democrats have a tough time arguing that we're seeing a real surge in US household formation. We saw during the Obama years, this kind of depressing trend of kids getting out of school, high debt, no jobs available. Moving back into the parents baseman always your son by the wage. Just easy. James kids to. Several years away from annoying me. Little grace period. But the point is when this changes for people when they're able to get their own place when they have a job when they see a a job market where their services are actually in demand, and there are actually maybe even employers competing to hire them. This is a very powerful change in people's lives, and I have a hard time believing. They turn on the TV and CNN Adam suddenly become persuaded that the economy stinks. Well, that's it's a fascinating point. You make James about your sensually talking about millennial generation when they haven't seen an economy with this title labour-market in. Well, last time we had it was two thousand five, two thousand six. And the last time we really had an economy growing. This fast was I guess it was two thousand four, five or maybe even nine hundred ninety nine. So they have never experienced this in their adult life. Is, and you know what's going to be their reaction to this on election day because obviously there's the stakes for them are much bigger than they are for all the retirees who are more inclined to support Donald Trump. Yeah, and I think that they had their disappointments under the Obama years when I think you remember it was all the concerts to get the millennials to vote for him. And I think they thought he was going to be president and it would rain ipods from the sky or something like that. And it didn't happen so that you know they are living at home. We have record numbers of people living at home, and I would think they're feeling the effect. I just know anecdotally from people in my family that we're looking for jobs and so forth. They feel so much more optimistic now and they see things happening that didn't happen before employers actively recruiting them. People that used to not, you know, return letter or something. And I think a lot of people feel that way now, well, it's going to be fascinating to watch. And let's hope. That the economy can can maintain this momentum because it's been a while before since we've had this growth, and if we can keep it going, as we learned in the nineties and the eighties for another couple of years, everybody tends to feel better about things less nastiness towards immigrants, less nastiness about trade, and even even in even within offices. All right. Thank you Bill. Thank you, James. Thank you all for listening. We'll be back next week with another edition of Potomac. Watch..

"I mean the old cliche is that when the economy's bad, it's the only issue, but when the economy's good, everything else. Comes to the fore, and the economy isn't such a big issue, but can Republicans drive this to help save their majorities? Well, I think they should keep talking about it. Keep highlighting it. They're doing a, I think a good thing going for tax cut two point. Oh here. But I, I'm hoping this economy will persuade the president that he's largely solved the US competitiveness problem with his tax and deregulatory doesn't need the trail. He really doesn't need a trade fight and and that scenario you sketched out, we make peace with our NAFTA friends and our European friends, and, and let's face it. It be great if he would could get it better deal with with those friends. But these deals are pretty good. Now they're, they're not high barriers in any of these trade relationships. Yeah, sure. There's some things we improve, but if he if he does that, I think we're in very good shape. And as you said with China, they're, they're very legitimate concerns there about the theft of intellectual property. We've talked about it a lot. It's it's not simply a matter of him wanting to change the the amount that goes back and forth. There are, there are problems with the way the Chinese attempt to gain competitive advantage. And so I think he'll have a very receptive audience in Europe and around the world if he wants to work with them to to fix the China trade problem, I think the one of the arguments that Trump is going to have to may if he wants to to make himself a central part of this campaign where he's not on the ballot, right? The Republicans in congress are on the ballot is soon after say, look, none of this would have happened if Nancy Pelosi had been speaker of the house in trek Schumer had been head of the Senate. When I got the corporate tax reform, you got your tax cut. You wouldn't got any of this deregulation and don't go back there to where they're going. To stymie continuing progress, you're not gonna get. If they are elected your retirement savings improved. You're not going to get the tax cuts made permanent all of that because otherwise, if it's all about Trump, he's such a complicated political figure with Ican point to his policies, but then everybody is going to talk about Robert Muller Russia, and you know this or that other Trump character issue and not focus on what are the real stakes here in November, which are the policy stakes? Yeah, not add to that. The judges. You wouldn't have gotten Neal Gorsuch or Brad Kavanagh. There's a lot of avenues that he can take. I think he has to point to the future in this to, you know, we few things on the agenda healthcare people still worried about premiums, Yup, and so forth. And I think this is going to be very hard for the Democrats to answer if he puts it that way, but that's how he has to put it to people. Elections have consequences for policy. You know, people he can easily do it. People said the three percent that he was predict. During the campaign was impossibly needs to remind people that it didn't just happen. And I think that's a pretty strong message. Of course, the Democrats are gonna be screaming, you know, they're going to be whether it's impeachment or dishonesty or or cabinet. They're gonna be fighting back to Well, I, I did see a an alert that came over my iphone today this morning with GDP report James for the Washington Post saying, comedy grows, four percent, four point, one percent in the second quarter, but many economists say it can't be sustained.

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch welcome back on Paul zhigo with James Freeman and Bill mcgurn. We're talking about the the Trump Konami and James Freeman put on the hope of the the pivot that Donald Trump made on trade this week. Stunning pivot, really, for weeks, he'd been saying, I'm gonna crush the Germans. I'm going to drive them are said that indoor into the Rhine. If if not into the North Sea on car of. Twenty five percent card tariffs. And he's basically we know from our reporting, he ordered Commerce Department. You find a national security skews through section two thirty to call Audi imports and BMW imports, national security threat. I know there are security security threat in northern New Jersey gentleman for you to people, but not from to Dr confessed, but but suddenly pivoting to say, well, I'm going with zero tariffs as a goal. I'm going for zero subsidies as a goal, and and we're going to put the tariffs car trips in abeyance and we're going to work to repeal the steel aluminum and the European retaliation Jeff. This is a frankly, a stunning pivot by an by Bina vowed. Protectionist gentlemen, what happened? Yeah. I, I don't think Trump could considers himself a protectionist. I think he considers himself someone that will you. As a protectionist stick to move people he feels is are treating the United States on fairly in a in a more open direction now that that brings a lot of trouble with it because you know, can strike all sorts of innocent people. But this is incurring news. What, however we get out of it. If we're the goal is Eero tariffs and we don't have we have freer trade between the countries. That's fine. I mean, the danger, this is always, again, there are a lot of side casualties and trade worth. They're not easy contrary to what the president says, and they're not easy because some of the costs are are the collateral damage is innocent victims, and we don't know always who those people are and they, they have their costs driven up for no particular reason. But this is incurring if he does, I will say politically, I think it gives him great momentum going into the November elections, and the sensiti could say, I stood up for you the American worker, and I got results and the growth is going. I mean, in the long term, if he's six tariffs, he made of bigger problems. But I think this is going to be very hard for the Democrats counter. Well, there's no course. There's no deal yet, right? It's just it's basically a truce here. We're not going to ex- escalate the trade friction between the your Europe in the US, but he still has those steel and. Aluminum tariffs on our allies and and he's also still negotiating renegotiating NAFTA. So that's still a an uncertainty. Although they're made, I'm told through my sources at they're making some progress behind the scenes and they'd like to get that done if possible before Lopez Oberdorf takes office on December first so that Mexico can approve it in the Republican. Congress could prove it. You take those two. If you could get a deal with Europe a deal with on NAFTA that would leave you down Trump fighting basically at one front war, John trade with China. That's dangerous. But it's a lot less dangerous than fighting with twenty-five nations. Yeah, and I'd have to say politically, I'm not sure how dangerous it is. Politically dangerous, very dangerous, economically. But I think a lot of people would like that message. We're sticking it to them. I mean, because we know the prices sticking. It people when you have a tariff is sticking it to yourself and your own consumers, but I'm not sure that that's a bad message at the ballot box for for the president, especially with the booming economy, be a lot harder to do. You know, in President Bush, did his steel tariffs down to, I believe, much more difficult economy and the pain. Those tariffs costs was much more media. I mean, he got rid of them in two thousand and three. Well, James Bill talked about the political impact. Obviously the one of the reasons that the president had this event at the side, the the the White House today was because he wanted to crow about this case that every single democrat voted against the tax reform they did and most of them voted against any deregulatory policy. So how is this going to to to play?.

"Business decisions, you can say, okay. Hi von idea. I can build this plan or I can hire these people and I can make that decision based on the business prospects not on some outside Dayo sex, mocking that comes in and doubles my costs. I think that is the biggest part of this change is the fact that there isn't a huge, uncertain, dark cloud coming from Washington. This is the first time in a long time, this administration where you don't have big pending rules. He really has essentially put a stop to that. The deregulation it at least to the extent we can measure it to this point. It's really not very large, as you said, it's five to ten billion dollars a year in these first two years of the Trump administration given that by some estimates regulation cost, two trillion ear in our economy, approaching twenty trillion a year. These are not big numbers, so it's not that he's had some massive rollback in despite what you. Might read in fundraising emails from environmental groups. He really hasn't changed regulation that much. But what he has done is said, no, actually the war on businesses over so you know, the the system we have, you can count on it. You've adapted to it and you won't have to adapt every five minutes in the future. Now, the big question, some of some of our friends on the left, including people who write for our publication Bill. I've invited them into our pages. I know you won't forgive me for it, but they occasionally right for they have. They have told us that this couldn't happen, and now that it has happened, they're telling that we couldn't get above two secular status new normal, then you know, and there were all kinds of reasons for it. Demographic reasons. No immigration, the fact that people were aging and and so on. But now that it has happened at least for the last six months to a year, they're saying it can't last. It's one trick pony. This is this is sugar high. But. Looking at the data. Do they have a point or is this sustainable? I, I don't think they do have a point. Look, there's it's not that it's all open. Skies ahead. Write there could be different things. One of the things you were describing before about business, the reason regulatory part of this is so important unlike unlike attacks or something, which is a definable price. Regulation is a big question Mark. You don't know. It could cost you a lot more than tech businesses, like certainty. They'll even take a bad tax or something. At least they can price it in very hard. Like you're saying to know the price of deregulation because we don't know the price that it puts in. Right. It's a tax and you don't know where it's gonna hit. Prisoner Obama, you know, famously hit them with healthcare costs and so forth, and enforcement costs enforcement. And he said at one point, I think President Obama, it said, you know, there was a lot of money on the side that wasn't being invested for the reasons you mentioned. People don't know. Well, invest in this today. My cost per employee might double if I have to. If there's new. Healthcare provision or some other regulatory provisions. And I think the Obama people thought business was doing that deliberately to punish them for their policy. I mean, they've they made noises like that, but really what they were as scared, they're scared that something was going to was going to hit them. I think there's a lot for the congress to do, but the optimism I think is that most of this growth has been driven by the investment by making it friendlier to investment and productivity. Not just consumption. So I think it's there to stay. It's going to go and I don't see anything that would stop that. I, I do see things that we could do, but I don't think see things that would stop that. So so James, the argument, let's let's kind of go through them. One would be you made the inventories point. So there's some goes to be had coming out of that. You've got the investment led growth, which means that tuna pay off in higher productivity. Typically that does higher wages which helps consumers. So consumer spending, which has been strong all along as as is. He's going to have the the advantage going forward of strong job growth, and we hope wage growth, you know that that will increase as well as the labor market titans and productivity improves..

"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Economy grew by four point, one percent in the second quarter of twenty eighteen and has now grown by three point, one percent across the first six months. That's the fastest growth in fast quarter of growth in four years since twenty fourteen and the Donald Trump naturally president states took credit for tried to take credit for it. Does he deserve it here? I'm Paul zhigo of the Wall Street Journal here. Talk about that in the political impact of this GDP number and whether it's a stain -able is Bill mcgurn Hulo Bill Hypo, and James Freeman, I James ball. So let's start with the GDP number. About coming in a little under economists expectations. People had said four point, four percent, the Saint Louis, the skinny. The Atlanta Fed's g GDP tracker had predicted three point eight, but anyway, slice at James four point. One is gangbusters number. Yes, yes. The economy is growing bigly. Certainly in the second quarter, and I think the president deserves a lot of credit. I think he should take a victory lap. This is the power of incentives at work here, the tax cutting and particularly to the corporate income tax rate and restraint on federal regulators has really changed the way business people look at investing in the United States. And if you look at the numbers Bill, it's really kind of interesting. You look at the economic expansion started this current one in the middle of two thousand nine when the post financial panic recession ended and it's been long in the tooth. And if you look at what happened, twenty fourteen was the last really was Obama's best year for growth, and you look at twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen. We were really bumping along almost under two percent, very low bid. Business investment in particular averaging zero point, six percent over two thousand five and twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen. Now you see twenty seventeen that number bumping up and and business investment. Now averaging seven and a half percent increase for the first six months of of this year. So that's the evidence I think that in fact, would James suggests tax reform and deregulation which were aimed precisely at stimulating business confidence and business investment has worked. That's evidence that it has worked. I I, I don't think there's any. I don't think there's any doubt of that because it's reduced the price of capital and you get more I mean through pretty straightforward cause and effect right in so far as they go that that we've had to count myself say, I was wondering ones disappointed because my expectations had been raised that I thought we might have something closer to five percent, but I would rather have the disappoint. I have today than the ones I had two years ago or three years ago. Well, in the numbers suggest grow the in not everything was rosy here. James, you had residential housing actually detracted from kroth, which is stunning to get the four point, one percent number and nothing from housing. That's that's really rare in a way. I think that is encouraging because it shows you the the strength of the productive economy and it's shows you how far we've come where we had a financial crisis, ten years ago that resulted in large part from kind of an unreal economy where we tried to conjure prosperity at of ever rising housing prices. And I think a lot of people began to believe during that period and the two thousands. When we had these rock bottom interest rates and all of these federal programs intended to drive people into housing that that's the source of wealth. Building more homes is how you get rich. And of course, really. A healthy society that's a symptom of a productive economy. It's not the cause of it. So I, there's so much to like in this report you look at. Actually, another thing that's attracted was inventories going down. Those are shelves that are going to need to be restocked in the second half of the year. So people thinking or saying, now this is great, but it's about to get much worse. I think they're going to be proven wrong inventories, took a full percentage point off of the GDP growth. So if you had a normal inventory number would have been five point, one percent, right?.

"Welcome back. The nation's economy grew at the strongest pace in almost four years during the second quarter. The. Commerce Department said the gross domestic product rose, four point, one percent during the spring that was commerce's preliminary estimate for the quarter, and it was up from the first quarter is revised estimate of two point, two percent. Let's talk about the big jump in second quarter GDP with the Wall Street Journal's Harriet. Tori who joins us from Washington, Harriet. This was obviously a solid rating but weren't economists expecting even stronger number. Yes, it's interesting estimates are really all over the place for this report. So most of them fell between a range of three point, seven and about five point seven. So when we actually got the number, it was sort of in the middle range of what most people are expected perhaps a little bit. But the and the reason for that was in the Tories there's an expectation that inventories would have gone off a lot as people kind of panic bull ahead of expected trade tariffs. It turns out that inventories actually declined. And so what went up was exports and it's combined with strong consumer spending and pretty solid business investment. The fact is really powered this report ahead. Was there some sort of artificially to this as far as trade activity was concerned, you know, farmers wanted to exports soybeans before the Chinese tariffs took effect this month? Yes. Say the the soybeans is thought to really be the factor behind the big jump in exports earlier this month. Coma department said soybean experts Szeged in the second quarter, and that was that likely reflected efforts by bias to get this. We'll beans before these retarded treat China, Chinese tariffs went into effect. So that is like he's been a one factor. We could see in the second quarter, perhaps recovery and inventories, and then perhaps a moderation in exports. The key question really though is is to do is consumer spending continues really rule. The economy and consumer spending was weak in the fuss Kuta. I'm not came as a bit of a surprise because of the tax cuts late last year. What really happened with people didn't really spend much in the first quarter. They kind of saved it off and they spent strongly in the second quarter. The big question is how how will that play out in the third quarter on the fourth quarter of this. How will this report affect the Federal Reserve's plan for interest rate hikes? It's already raised interest rates twice this year and the forecast calls for two more rate hikes. By year's end. This report makes it very likely that they will stick to that off. There is a meeting next week, it's it's expected that they will hold into straight study at that meeting and then raise rates in September from the next time. So this is yeah, it's it's a clear sign that the economy is moving food. The fed has said it's going to gradually raise interest rates to prevent it from overheating. And this report seems to keep it very much on track and the four point, one percent reading the strongest rating since third quarter two thousand fourteen. When the growth rate GDP growth rate was four point, nine percent is there disagreement over whether this is sustainable or not? President Trump Friday called the report. Amazing and said, the growth rate was very sustainable. You know, this is an estimate. We'll see if there are revisions. One report doesn't. We'll have to see what happens. Economists us sort of device. Voted on this issue. It's it's definitely a a strong second Coosa. But if this is down to people spending that extra tax dollas it's it's really debatable as to whether that will keep going in the near future, especially because productivity growth is still pretty low. You know that we have the, they're serious headwinds, Jack growth like, you know, demographics and aging and so on. And then of course there is trade on Sutton tea, and it's it's taking a bit of a hit to consumer sentiment today. We will have the university of Michigan reading out on consumer sentiment on that motorists it again. So we'll have to see Wall Street Journal reporter, Harriet, Tori, joining us from Washington.
