Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) March 16, 2014
Fort Worth-based precious metals dealer Certified Gold Exchange, Inc., has asked GM CEO Jeff Immelt and Honeywell CEO David Cote for clarification of statements made by both individuals recently in which the CEOs claimed the U.S. economy is improving. Certified Gold Exchange spokesperson Janet Jones believes that the public figures should be held accountable because, “almost every single economic indicator that we track at Certified Gold Exchange proves our economy is worse off today than it was in 2008.”
“There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than in 2008, and the number of long-term unemployed is more than twice as high today than in 2008,” Jones said. “We are losing thousands of manufacturing jobs each year and the number of full-time workers in the U.S. is more than six million below the record high that was set in 2007.”
Company chiefs, central bank governors and supporters of the current administration have struggled to convince everyday Americans that the economy is improving in sustainable ways, but skyrocketing food and fuel costs have left many skeptical, according to Jones. “The average price for a gallon of gas has risen from $1.85 in 2008 to $3.64 today, and the price of ground beef has risen by almost 30 percent during that same time,” Jones said. “I understand CEOs want to convince people things are getting better for our nation financially, but it’s just not true. The numbers don’t lie.”
