    Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Indiana, and Nebraska were the largest soybean producers in 2016. Soybeans are America's leading agricultural export. Nearly 60% of U.S. soybeans went to China last year. Donald Trump has changed that. Now China gets all soybeans from Brazil. Recessions, just like trade wars, are easy to win. Does anyone believe that China will come crawling back, and ask America to start sending soybeans again? The last big recession in the U.S. happened in 2008. The year my 401k's disappeared. The recession in 2008 caused Barack Obama to be "44".

    The real economy is terrible. Middle class crushed, diligent investors always unjustly forced to lose. Stock market is 4 to 8 times overpriced, with small caps at the high end. I tell the truth. I am analyst and I will not lie. Housing going higher, taxes going higher, quality of jobs going lower, unemployment going higher. Actual 24% unemployment. I scoured the BLS data and was 26% unemployment 6 years ago, crept to 24% over all those years now slowly worsening. You must realize it requires about 170k new jobs per month just to keep up with population growth. The media moguls will not clue you in on this so any positive number they spin and the ignorant public buys into it.
    Look at today, DOW futures down 350 then manipulated up to +250 before anyone is able to make a trade to help their account while being on the correct side of fair value for this masked economic depression. The wealthy are loving it.

    Simple way to cast your vote: if you believe the economy is doing well, invest in the Stock Market; if you think we're headed into recession, invest in Treasury Notes.

    Sure, but why did the U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI)
    drop below 50% now? It was never that low since 2009 (remember, those were the Obama year, everybody was complaining about anemic recovery).

  • Facts Matter
    Facts Matter Month ago

    Trump began taking credit for the Obama Economy the moment he was sworn in but now that large employers are beginning to lay people off and it looks like a recession is setting in Trump alternates between total denial by saying the American economy is the strongest it's ever been yet at the same time says the Fed needs to lower interest rates and congress needs to lower payroll taxes to prevent a recession. Didn't Trump and Republicans promise voters that giving yet another huge tax cut to the richest 1% that increased the National Debt $ trillions of dollars would "trickle down" and create millions of good paying jobs and increase wages? What happened and how stupid do white middle class voters need to be to keep falling for that lie? Kind of like when Trump started the trade war with China by imposing tariffs saying "a trade war with China will be easy to win" but now our paranoid schizophrenic mentally deranged president denies he started a trade war with China.

    I wish Trump luck. Trump doubling down on trickle down. Sure the doubling of the national debt rate is not scary at all.
    FY 2018 - $1.217 trillion. Trump
    FY 2017 - $672 billion. Obama

      It is pretty hard to double the national debt by giving the rich a big tax cut.
      FY 2018 - $1.217 trillion.
      FY 2017 - $672 billion.

    Trump can't live off of the fumes from the Obama economy forever. At some point the consequences of his policies will start to take effect. Then we'll see.

    • jake spivey

      The tax cut and easing of regulations (whether they are justified or not ) did gave the economy a boost. But, Trump couldn't leave well enough alone. He's started a tariff war and it's going to be disastrous for many people.

    No ones praying for a recession, its called being cautious. Do we need another bubble burst? The Trump admin got rid of laws protecting the everyday citizens. Allowing banks and investors to once again make risky moves with our money.

How big is this "threat" and what are its ostensible causes? There are always "dark clouds" somewhere but show me evidence that they're heading in our direction. Until then STFU!

    Chinese communism is a real and present, in this moment, threat to the free world. don't give them a moment to breathe. If not for Trump, they might very well had succeeded. America created the Chinese economy, and it was the most idiotic and treasonous thing we ever did.

    No one is praying for a recession.
    And expecting a recession soon does not make economists into "fake" economists. They have valid data and arguments for it as much as economists who expect a stable economy.
    At the end of the day no one knows what will happen to the economy. But what we do know is that the economy never goes up in a straight line, there are always it's contractions. It's been 11 years since the great recession, it's not hard to see that a recession is coming soon. Especially when the yield rate seems to be inverting.
    But when will we have a recession? No one knows

    I always thought it sounded like pre -planned manipulation of the markets and all those with TDS willing to cut off their noses and causing their fellow citizens harm just to show Pres.Trump their middle finger . If people are frightened into losing their confidence and not spending then it goes to show how easy it is to make a fake downturn .
