“Actually our gas and electric went down. There are pockets of inflation and there is asset inflation. But over all, there is a deflationary pressure caused by 3 things. 1. Unemployment 2. deleveraging from unreasonable credit levels by households 3. baby boomers are hunkering down. The party is OVER for them if they don't save.
There is further study in the articles I have cited for you at the end of this article. People must, must understand that Donald Trump is a divider of races and ethnicity, because at heart he is a fascist. Fascism seeks the purity of the races. Fascism is the opposite of what America stands for. Keep in mind that Donald Trump is highly influenced by Anarcho Capitalist, Murray Rothbard. This is an email I sent to an author online. It is slightly muddled, but overall quite accurate in its assessment of Libertarian Murray Rothbard:
I agree with your article on Rothbard, mostly. However, as a British court ruled, Zionism is not the essence of what it means to be Jewish. Therefore, I hate antiSemitism, and embrace antiZionism. I have both religious and non religious reasons for taking this stand. And the court absolves me of racism. After all my natural father was Jewish. And more and more Jews hate Zionism.

John Mauldin published an article regarding the economics of Donald Trump. I share many of his views. I think the article deserves to be discussed further.

I believe he is like many, willing to fight for higher interest rates within reason and within the economic boundaries that exist.

Learn economics. Topics in Economics can give even the newbie insights into how the economies of the world work with a focus on China and the USA. There are 30 topics listed with articles on those subjects, as well as a glossary of terms. I have written a lot of vetted articles that are exclusive** to Talkmarkets. Sorting a portion of them by subject will give the reader an opportunity to make sense of it all. I am adding a glossary of terms at the bottom of this page. For readers interested in economic subjects of the day, these top 30 themes are my efforts to make understanding economics easier.
Please keep in mind that many economic and moral decisions change as we approach the zero lower bound for interest rates. As bonds go negative, things change. That which was a moral duty when rates are 5 percent, like say lowering to 4 percent to stimulate the economy, don't work when we approach zero.
If anything, the closer to zero that we go, the less lending and less banking stability…
