A new era of growth is on the horizon

Unexpected economic and political events could always intervene otherwise, but unless they do it looks like the United States is set to enter a new period of political activism.

Some investors may view activism as a negative, but that's precisely the opposite stance they should take toward the changes that are likely ahead. That's because in the US, each era of political activism in the past has led to an expansion of the middle class, a better life for the typical person, and a stronger economy characterized by sustainable growth.
