The economy is not growing at a ‘moderate speed’. Officially, per capita growth is less than 1% a year. What kind of ‘oomph’ is that?
It will be tough for Congress to come to terms with its budget. The debate will open old wounds and gouge new ones.
Gold failed to climb above the resistance level of US$1,283 an ounce. Instead, it turned to the downside and plummeted to a two-week low. That’s a warning.
So let’s get this straight: The Deep State relies on two sources of income: fake money borrowed at ultra-low rates…and federal spending.
In the past, politicians could bribe older voters with ‘social welfare’ spending. As long as the economy grew fast enough, there was no problem.

In order for Trump to govern well, he must reduce the reach of government. He must drain the swamp.
Which policies are likely to make America great again? Which will not? We’ll lay out the logic. You decide how it will play out.
Draining the swamp is shorthand for eliminating those burdens. It is the only way to Make America Great Again, at least economically.
Welfare promises — made in times of lower life expectancies, when less people were at the apex of society’s pyramid (and during the greatest credit boom in history) — are going to be reneged upon.
The middle class got lower wages and more debt. The system is rigged in favour of the Establishment that runs it. Voters couldn’t sort out exactly how…
Donald J Trump has promised to get the economy growing at a 4% annual pace. To do so, he will have to stimulate it somehow.
In an election, the majority vote tends to go to the highest bidder. What’s in it for me? Who promises to take less and give me more?
Yes, the feds are broke. And yes, Republicans did block previous efforts at fiscal stimulus. But we wouldn’t give up on the ‘reflation trade’ completely.
