Your observations could have been made in 1882, 1912, 1931, 1975 or virtually any year in the history of the United States - the economy is a pendulum which swings back and forth.
It always swings back to the right and then it always swings back to the left. It is in a constant state of flux and always will be.
As for the President meeting with the facebook kid and whoever is running Sony - he's a fan. It was probably a big thrill for him getting to meet two people who have harvested enormous wealth from social media and electronics. In other words the meeting is neither significant nor noteworthy.
