DRUMPF BTFO: The Stock Market Crash and the Biggest One-Day Selloff in History

The White House is pointing to the “fundamentals of the economy” as a reason not to worry about the downturn. It’s a fair argument, but the phrase has a checkered history in politics.

Calling “the fundamentals” of the economy “strong” has a checkered history in recent politics. Most famously, John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, used the phrase on September 15, 2008, the same day the Wall Street giant Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. Many political analysts consider it a turning point in the 2008 presidential campaign, which Barack Obama ultimately won.

The Stock Market Crash That Wasn’t

What goes up must come down.

JOHN STEELE GORDON / FEB. 6, 2018

The underlying economy has seen increased growth over the last three quarters, 200,000 new jobs last month, unemployment at 4.1 percent, and indications that wages might be rising at a faster pace after years of languishing. The new tax law should result in increased consumer spending and corporate investment, the two big engines of economic growth. Many economists see the possibility of 4 percent growth this quarter, a pace unseen for more than a decade.

And while interest rates have been rising, they have only been returning to more normal levels after the Fed kept them unnaturally low for years. That is actually a sign of a recovering economy. Higher interest rates will, however, increase the attraction of investments other than stocks, such as bonds. The extraordinary surge in the stock market from its March 2009, low of a little over 7,000 on the Dow–a run-up of almost 400 percent in nine years–is to some extent a product of those artificially low-interest rates that made the stock market the only game in town for investors.

So while the economy shows every sign of increasing health, I wouldn’t be surprised if we have seen the high on the Dow for the year. But that’s a long way from a crash. Overseas markets are down sharply, reacting to Wall Street, and Wall Street is likely to react to that reaction, at least at the opening. As Bette Davis famously said in All About Eve, “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

That, of course, is precisely why President Trump should not have been touting the stock market rise as one of his administration’s accomplishments. The stock market, unlike the underlying economy, is subject to the whims of human passion in the short term.

Hi Holla Forums. Here to blow yourself out again?

THANK YOU OBAMA

Obama is truly the greatest president we've ever had

The DJI is only up 24% since he took office. DRUMPF IS DONE FOR!!1!

No wonder why your true socialist states were such failures.

TURN THE FUCKING MACHINES BACK ON.
TURN THE FUCKING MACHINES BACK ON.
TURN THE FUCKING MACHINES BACK ON.

No wonder why you cuckistanis are such failures.

That's a pretty steep drop tbh

top fucking cuck

Theres two main issues here.

First is that international markets are responding to wising workers pay in the USA. And they don't like it. Pay should go down in real terms never up.
At least in their eyes.

The second issue is that the decade of high levels of public subsidy is coming to an end
Central banks are bringing interest rates up and more money is being funnelled into the banks

As a result everyone is now looking at their portfolios and wondering what companies are going to be able to survive without said subsidy AND rising worker pay.

Less stock market crash and more a correction.

NICE TRY INBRED RETARD

Also, mods are asleep, post shit-tier memes in the Holla Forums thread.

Why would the Jewish owner and the Muslim mod of Holla Forums put a swastika in the page?

Why do White Nationalists want to kill White people who wish to meet up without them?
8ch.net/polmeta/res/28806.html

Why would Holla Forums ban a White meet up?

Why are Whites the only ethnic group that do not meet up and network?

There is a war against Whites being currently waged. It's time to start fighting back.

White Nationalism is the cause of "White Genocide"

Just in case there was ever any doubt about who's always spamming the anti-Christian D&C, I give you

I feel so sorry for you.

We got a better god.

Are your tears burning your vagina

Poor fucking OP is such a faggot that by the time i see his garbage-tier leftypol thread (judging by the cringe-worthy unironic use of terms like "porky" and "cuckitalism") he's already been btfo by reality crashing down on his childish dreams of "capitalism" failing.

In reality, the best places to live are capitalist-operated and every alternative looks ridiculous in comparison.

New Fed hack

Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen at the Fed have seen to that.

And now, the incoming Fed chairman, Jerome Powell — a Fed hack, like Yellen — will get his chance.

We predict that he will do more harm than all of them put together.

Not intentionally, of course. He will be trapped by circumstances…a victim of history, like poor Gideon Gono, Zimbabwe’s central bank chief between 2003 and 2013.

Faced with bills to pay and a desperate economy, what choice did he have?

All he could do was add zeros to the nation’s currency…until we ended up with a 10 trillion Zimbabwean dollar note in our wallet. (Worthless, of course.)

Easy money fraud
But that is still in the future.

In the present, finally, The New York Times has noticed. The world-as-we-have-known-it is coming to an end.

‘World braces as an era of easy money draws to an end,’ is the front-page headline this morning.

The world-as-we-have-known-it was created by the aforementioned trio — Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen.

Over the last 30 years, they aided and abetted the adding of trillions in new chips — fake money, borrowed at fake rates — to the nation’s gambling stock.
