Dow Jones Index Near All-Time High
An economic story that's flown under the radar is the rise of the stock market to near-record heights. It's almost come back from the Internet stock-charged bubble that burst in 2000:
The Dow Jones industrial average is just 53.59 points away from its all-time high close, going into today's trading. In pre-market trading, Dow Jones futures are up 3 points, S&P 500 futures rose 0.5 of a point, and Nasdaq futures rose 2.8 points.
When Bill Clinton was President I remember his administration touting new stock market high after new stock market high as a sign of their success in managing the economy. I think President Bush and the gang should do a little crowing of their own.
