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.

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.

employment numbers improve in the us
this causes the fed to consider finally upping interest rates, to avoid inflation from the increased production and profit growth in the private market
people are surprised that speculative stock market investors, who are known to be blind, greedy and overly-optimistic retards do a heel turn and run away pissing their pants at the thought of interest rates rising

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.

Less surprising is that President Trump, who referred to himself as the “king of debt,” during the campaign has now become the emperor of it.
nationalinterest.org/feature/rand-paul-right-about-the-debt-crisis-24448

Here’s a crazy stat: The top 1% in America now controls 38.6% of the country’s wealth. That’s up from 33.7% ten years ago (pre-recession). The bottom 90% of American households hold only 22.8% of the wealth, down from the pre-recession 28.5% in 2007. More depressing stats here.
It’s clear that the fruits of the recovery (Obama’s recovery) haven’t been equally shared. This is one reason it’s absurd for Trump to boast about the stock market, as if it mattered to his white working class base, when it indicates the opposite: Wealth consolidation.

“The United States has now got double bubble trouble (bubbles in both corporate and household debt). Just like 2007, this is another economic boom fueled by an unsustainable credit bubble that will inevitably blow up with a rookie Fed chairman in place,” writes Edwards, who for this reason is more bullish on bonds.

DRUMPF BTFO:

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.
