So Trump is 1/2 as big as Obama. Sounds generous.

As an investor, my money is on China. When American companies moved out of China into Vietnam, chasing cheaper labor, China started refitting their factories with robotics. At that point, I thought America would move into automated manufacturing. The American market did not. Then Trump won. That's when I bailed. I dumped my 401k and other monies into Amazon and the Chinese market. However, I'm watching closely Amazon's relationship with India. If Bezos pulls out of China completely, China only has Alibaba and JT Holdings. and they need to catch on to the overseas market.

If Trump continues the tariff wars, America's going to lose their shirts. Coffee, pork futures... American products are going to tank miserably. Google it. We've been warned since 2014. Google the ---- storm that maybe coming our way from the Brazilian - Chinese trade agreements.

Every politician elected president--until now--knew one thing: get the recession out of the way ASAP, so that the economy is on the upswing during re-election time. With his staff of grifters, mouth-breathers and criminal science majors using a revolving door, his economic team busy on comedy shows and his lack of understanding of basic economic concepts, Trump missed this memo. His recession will come just in time for the Summer of 2020 and will linger past election day. For many it will seem like a sharp stick in the eye, and few will believe Sarah Sanders' fat lies trying to blame it all on the Congressional Dems...

Global Economic Collapse is imminent.

The traitors in congress, scotus, the economic terrorists - corporations and the bankers are responsible for this. All to line their pockets with gold, while the vast majority of society has diminished prosperity, is left holding the debts, and the mandatory debt service.

They allowed the corporate terrorists to destroy our economy to engage in criminal profiteering, destroying tens of millions of jobs, and the stealing the real prosperity that was created, while also removing any ability to confront any threat to our collective prosperity.

That threat now has the ability to weather the storm, because THEY now hold the means of production, and it is in production of goods that creates ALL economic value. The service sector itself is wholly dependent on the production of goods, as the value of service is no more than a set aside of the value of production, to address the inconsistencies reflected by the act of production. Beyond that, EVERY other occupation that exists, exists because it stands on the backs of those whom created the ENTIRE value of society to begin with.

The final nail in the coffin is that having no intrinsic value, the service economy has inflated their value well above the value of the goods actually produced. A GIG economy. A smoke and mirrors economy.

I warned you at the very beginning of the great recession. You still look through rose colored glasses. You still let them deceive you. This will not be like last time.
