You know our economy is on fire when…

10. Economists consider full employment for a nation to be when unemployment is at 5% and America is at 4.7%.

9. Homeownership is at record levels across all demographics.

8. The stock market goes down on the news people’s wages are increasing faster then projected (the concern is inflation).

7. Companies from small to large are reporting higher profits and revenue today then during the Dot Com boom.

6. I have to wait 40 minutes for a table at Applebee’s.

5. So many more people would rather pay $5 for a Starbucks coffee then $1 for a deli coffee that Starbucks says they will have to open up 700 new stores in the U.S. in 2006.

4. People just assume you own a computer, Ipod, cell phone or digital camera no matter what your level of employment is.

3. Even Ford and GM say they saw an increase in sales.

2. Even New York City has a $2 billion dollar surplus.

And the number one sign,

1. You don’t hear a word out of Democrats about the economy while in the middle of a major election year.
