Christmas happens on the same date every year but somehow, the holidays still seem to sneak up on us. Whether you shop online or buy local here in Edmonton, it’s time to cross all of those names off your shopping list. After all, once you’ve bought and wrapped everything you need, you can finally get to the good stuff – enjoying the holiday season with those you love. We polled our team to see what their go-to gifts are this year and got some great answers. Not only did it generate some fantastic ideas, it helped us learn a bit more about each of our colleagues!
In lieu of our usual seasonal song parody, we thought it important to release this advance excerpt from the annual White House outlook.
Great numbers on stocks and the economy. Highest stock market EVER. Great numbers. Best ever. You can look it up. Someone told me our economy grew at 5% last year. I dunno. Someone told me that.
We’ve got a giant, beautiful, massive tax cut coming that is going to give us even better news. OK, these guys at CNN, or is it CIBC, are saying that we’ll grow at 2.3% in 2018. Fake news. Fake news. But these CIBC people tell me that we’re going to see unemployment drop below 4% by the end of 2018. Hillary would have never done that. Believe me. And there’s no problem with inflation in 2018, no problem. Two percent or so.
