Most of the economic indicators quoted in the mainstream media focus on Gross Domestic Product [G.D.P.] and the National Unemployment Rate. We believe that neither of these prove to be accurate indicators.
The most accurate and egalitarian forecasting devices, to us, are the National Foreclosure Rate and the National Personal Savings Rate. Both of these describe people on many sides of the economic scale.
Foreclosures [having to forfeit your home because you can no longer afford it] are escalating at a dangerous rate and the US has a negative National Personal Savings Rate [the amount of money you have left over after expenses]. Both of these indicators are exasterbated by the growth of personal debt and the ever rising trend of layoffs, downsizing and forced retirement.
None of the promises you will hear during the "State of the Union" speech will address these issues head on. They may be mentioned as mere economic speed bumps... but not serious national issues that demand immediate attention.
Below are 3 links that illustrate in detail what our true State of the Union is. If you take a bit of time to check these out [they're very digestible exposes'], you'll be armed for the discussions you will most certainly have at the worksite, in the office, the breakroom and the bedroom.

Spending could outstrip income in 2005, which hasn't happened since the Depression
