How will the markets react if Trump wins the presidential elections?


There's no denying Trump has done a good job of making himself rich -- he's worth somewhere between $4.5 billion and $10 billion, depending who you ask. Can he make the rest of America rich, too?

The economy isn't something Trump looks forward to tackling. In a January interview with "Good Morning America," Trump offered up a bleak assessment of the U.S. economy but added that, in terms of fixing it, it's a task he'd rather skip.

"We're in a bubble," he said. "And, frankly, if there's going to be a bubble popping, I hope they pop before I become president because I don't want to inherit all this stuff. I'd rather it be the day before rather than the day after, I will tell you that."

Unfortunately we have already had complete Republican control and the Republicans have amply demonstrated that they are utterly incapable of governing. Not long ago, GWB had a Republican congress and senate. What did we get from it? Mostly out of control debt and a more intrusive government.

Tax cuts are great, but the idea is to "starve the beast". If you go out and borrow from the Chinese to make up for the shortfall, and more, you've made things worse and delayed the inevitable. The Republicans claim to be in favour of fiscal rectitude but in reality no amount of money is too much to spend against things they don't like. A wall on the Mexican border, for instance. Gov Walker, an early presidential contender, even said that a wall along the Canadian border would be a good idea.

When Trump mentioned debt repudiation, he was describing the federal government's own current policy. David Stockman in his new books demonstrates that if today you buy a thirty year US government bond at the current rate and inflation is two percent for the next thirty years, after thirty years you have lost forty five percent of the value of your bond. That's called debt repudiation.If Trump suggests essentially the same thing Obama's done for the last eight years and the president before that and the one before that and the one before that however, the leftists go berserk. That is what they are taught to do by the sheep dog media snapping at their heels and by the political scum they worship.
