Without getting too political, I can't help but wonder what effect the death of Osama Bin Laden with have on the U.S. economy. The early signs are guardedly positive. Wall Street seems to be up. Gold and oil are down a bit. Of course, it all depends on what happens next. If there are reprisal actions, the pressure to continue the war on terror efforts will remain high. If things quiet down, perhaps some of the huge investment overseas can come home to shore up the local economy. If people feel more confident in what the future holds, they are more likely to invest in their homes, cabinetry and furniture. And if the economy is more stable, banks are likely to be more willing to lend more for such things. I just worry this is one snake that will not die with the head cut off. What do you think?
