    Yeah, I am sure the mega corporations like McDonalds will be fine. It's the small businesses that will go under. Like the one AoC worked at.


    If you really want to see what Democrats version of America looks like economically look at France. Absolute **** show over there. They have everything American liberal dream of and they are still protesting. They should be protesting against themselves for voting for that crap in the first place but voters never blame themselves for voting for bad policies.

    $1,560,000,000,000.

    1.56 trillion dollars. That's the total student

    loan debt in the United States.

    We have a crisis on our hand — and predatory loan

    companies are profiting off of it. We need bold ideas:

    we need free college for all.

    Will Trump Trade the Future for a Hill of Beans?

    The outlines of a potential trade deal with China suggest President Trump once again is prioritizing superficial gains over America’s long-term economic interests.

    It’s easy to sell soybeans to China. The Chinese are voracious consumers of the world’s raw materials. Until 2018, shiploads of soybeans from the American Midwest streamed to the processing plants that dot the Chinese coast. So there is no reason to applaud the news that the Chinese government has offered to guarantee large purchases of American soybeans as part of a potential trade deal with the United States that the Trump administration is pushing to complete by late March or early April.

    Instead, it is a worrying sign that the administration may settle for an ephemeral victory at the expense of America’s long-term economic interests.

    The textbook industry has essentially destroyed the second hand market. They require you to buy a code to even participate in the class. And some teachers who have tried to go around this by printing their own textbooks have gotten in trouble by the uni's.

    Marijuana is the fastest growing industry adding 65k jobs in 2018. 300k people in total are now full time employees for marijuana companies. No doubt thanks to Trump....

    The key takeaway today: The Fed is getting more worried about the economy.

    -It sees 2.1% GDP in 2019 and 1.9% in 2020
    -It is now planning ZERO rate hikes in 2019
    -It did exactly what market wanted on balance sheet (i.e. stopping in September and slowing in May)
    "This is the end of my presidency. I'm ****ed." - Donald J. Trump, innocent and totally exonerated man, upon hearing a special counsel has been appointed to investigate him.

    Fed has been making this mistake for 10 years.

    Doesn't let the market set the rates... Creating a bubble for a disaster down the road

    The Treasury data show tax receipts declined for both corporations and individuals in the five-month period, while revenue from customs duties almost doubled, boosted by income from tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.

    The 2017 tax law slashed the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent.

    Corporations have so far this fiscal year paid $59.2 billion, compared to $73.5 billion at the point in 2018, when the tax law was only partially in effect for some corporations. In 2017, however, the year before the law was enacted, corporations had paid $87.4 billion at this point in the year.

    .............................

    and your suggestions for "getting spending under control
    I dont see where spending went up 38%.
    That seems a huge spike for a 5 month period
    .................................................. .......


    I dont know nor will I pretend to know which is the problem.
    All I know is people were assured this wouldn't happen

    Jobless claims/unemployment are not good economic indicators on their own.
