That's why I said "a good sign in a struggling economy".
No celebration regards, but maybe, just maybe, we are crawling out of an economic hole. Take a look at this estimate for the fourth quarter "Economy soars 5.7 percent, fastest in 6 years". Again not reported here before. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN1416882220100129
That seems to be two quarters. The next worry is the double dip recession.
