US Real GDP grew at a whopping 5.2% (revision) in Q3.

But was it organic growth or simply The Federal Government funding the defense and green energy industies with trillions in spending?

If the US economy growing simply to function as a war machine and wealth transfer mechanism from the middle class to the 1%, we are on the Highway To Hell. Personal consumption contributed 2.44% to the bottom line GDP print in Q3, down from the pre-revision number of 2.69% but well above Q2’s 0.55%.
