From Jeff Clark in Growth Stock Wire:
If you want to get a good indication of the health of the economy, just look at your local restaurants.
Packed restaurants are a sure sign of a bustling, vibrant economy. It’s hard to be bearish when you can’t get a table on a Wednesday evening.

All summer long, the restaurants in my [...]
