    Bloomberg are very similar, middle of the road politically, self-made men.

    I hate to say this, (and I dislike Trump calling Bloomberg little or midget) but I believe the difference between the two men may simply become down to a difference in physical stature. I think Trump would be better for the country, so perhaps that is coloring my views.
    Business-wise, I believe Bloomberg is more astute than Trump, but I dislike Bloomberg’s desire for control. I believe Bloomberg would desire to turn America into an authoritarian Socialist country. Trump would foresee an America, richer, growing faster with more freedom.
    The question of which man becomes president, however, could come down to how much the world is depressed by covid-19; a factor not controlled by either man.

      I think there are glaring differences:

      Bloomberg is a globalist, supports Chinese business, is favored by the deep state dems and RINOs (warning indicator), is pro-choice, anti-gun, has bowed to the left, supports the investor, not the American people.

      Trump has sacrificed for a belief in America, is undermining the DC elite, selecting long term federal judges to protect the constitution, is anti-abortion, pro-gun, is fighting China, and protecting speech and free-will, as much as possible.

      These are substantive issues for the direction of the US, and substantive differences.

    White House Considering Incentives To Spur Stock Buying

      A GREAT IDEA!

      • On February 16, 2020 at 3:08 am,
        Excelsior says:

        Big Al – It isn’t a great idea for the government to be in the business of pumping the stock markets, and is merely a move to provide “The Wealth Effect” perception.

        This administration is trying to force more money flow into stocks to backstop any potential topping of the markets, and to continue inflation into the stock market bubble. Donald Trump has repeatedly tied himself and his policies to the success of the stocks markets as proof of some great job that he or his administration has done (which is BS).

        The reality is that the low interest rate environment created by our FED, has banks and businesses borrowing at next to nothing and continues to spike the risk on assets in the stock markets. Also these low interest rates punish savers, so instead of having money in savings accounts, CDs, Money Markets, or fixed annuities, insteady they are forced to take on much more risk and buy stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs to get returns.

        This is only compounded by the global macro picture where zero interest rate policies (ZIRP) or Negative Interest Rate Policies (NIRP) in other countries, created by their central banks cutting rates to oblivion, have capital fleeing other markets and currencies and into the US general stock markets and US Dollar.

        People aren’t buying the stock markets because of a rosy economic picture, or growth from the underlying companies, or fundamental reasons, they are being corralled into the US stock markets (in a narrow basket of high flying FAANG stocks or Tesla) because there is nowhere else left to get returns, and it is forcing the indexes higher and higher while the music is playing. When the music stops, eventually it will be evident that the emperor is wearing no clothes….

        The Wealth Effect

        By Daniel Liberto – Jun 26, 2019

        > What is The Wealth Effect?

        “The wealth effect is a behavioral economic theory suggesting that people spend more as the value of their assets rise. The idea is that consumers feel more financially secure and confident about their wealth when their homes or investment portfolios increase in value. They are made to feel richer, even if their income and fixed costs are the same as before.”

          Excelsior, here is a great personal example of what you are saying:
          We were having dinner with some folks on Friday evening and two of the guys were bragging that their retirement portfolios are increasing so rapidly that they are spending less money to live annually that their portfolios are increasing. I will say that one of those guys is perhaps the biggest braggart who I have ever known in my life.

            Only one week after significant liquidation, shifting sentiment in financial markets is prompting investors to jump back into the gold space, according to the latest trade data from the CFTC.

            The CFTC’s disaggregated Commitments of Traders report for the week ending Feb. 11 showed money managers increased their speculative gross long positions in Comex gold futures by 7,737 contracts to 231,499.

            Hi Big Al – I just saw your comment with the example from the dinner party where that guy felt “wealthier” due to the surge in the stock markets and thus his perceptions around spending. Yes, that is precisely it. If people feel their paper gains have them in a secure place they are happier and feel like they can spend because their net worth on paper is increasing. However wind the clock back to the last major economic crisis in 2008 & 2009 and many were scrimping to save, not upgrading their cars, and living more frugally because they felt the retirements were in jeopardy and they’d need to work longer and harder.

            This recent move by the administration to encourage more speculation in the stock markets (over saving) is crafty, but more dangerous and merely a way to backstop the stock market to keep pushing it higher. It is good for investors to have a bit more security with their nestegg, but the move up has been somewhat artificial and contrived.

            Wishing all the best in their investments, just thought it was an interesting decision for the government to spur investing in the stock markets.

If a candidate distances him/herself from Trump, they will lose regardless – the motivation is with the Donald. Americans want to strike down the elite – playing it safe will not, and has never motivated voters. Ask McCain and Romney

    For those not in Isolation the Covid-19 is doubling infections about EVERY 7 DAYS.
    IT IS CAPABLE OF INFECTING BEFORE SYMPTOMS SHOW.
    With hospital treatment it appears to have about a 2% kill rate, at about the 35-40 day point.
    This will clearly affect world trade.
    Servicing Chinese and US debt IS NOT A PROBLEM as interest rates WILL GO TO ZERO due to universal money printing.
    US, the world’s biggest economy, is Printing.
    China, the world’s second biggest economy, is printing money.
    Europe, the world’s third biggest economy, will print money.

    Right now printing money is NOT INFLATIONARY, because the money is being soaked up by banks and put into markets.

    Only after the markets drop and money comes out of the markets will money chase real things and then inflation will be noticeable.

    China Quarantines Cash to Sanitize Old Bank Notes From Virus

    Bloomberg News – February 15, 2020

    “The government cut off the transfer and allocation of old bank notes across provinces, and between cities most affected by the deadly outbreak, according to Fan Yifei, People’s Bank of China’s deputy governor. The central bank also ramped up measures to sanitize old money to reduce contagion risks and added 600 billion yuan ($85.9 billion) of new cash for Hubei, the epicenter of the coronavirus,” he said.

    “Money from key virus-hit areas will be sanitized with ultraviolet rays or heated and locked up for at least 14 days, before it is distributed again,” Fan said at a press conference on Saturday. Money circulated in less riskier areas is subject to a week of quarantine and commercial lenders have been asked to separate cash from hospitals and food markets, he said.”

      Forget Sars, The New Coronavirus Threatens A Meltdown In China’s Economy

      SCMP Columnist – by Cary Huang 16 Feb, 2020

      “Sars cut two percentage points from China’s real GDP growth in the second quarter of 2003 and caused US$50 billion of damage to the global economy.”

      “Of course, the economic losses from Covid-19 will depend somewhat on how long the outbreak lasts and on what policy support the Chinese government comes up with to offset the impact. But even at this stage, it is obvious that the economic impact of Covid-19 will be far more severe than that of Sars, or any other previous epidemic, for a number of reasons.”

      “Firstly, the Chinese economy is four times as big as it was in 2003, so its losses and the impact on the global economy are likely to be correspondingly larger. China’s gross domestic product accounted for around 16 per cent of the global total last year while it was just four per cent in 2003. A rough estimate is that Covid-19 will cause at least four times as big a loss as Sars.”

      “Secondly, the timing is far worse. The outbreak took place just days before the Lunar New Year holiday, when hundreds of millions of Chinese travel domestically and internationally to attend family reunions and festive events. Sars happened in the second quarter of the year, when there was far less activity to disrupt.”

        The point was made by a KER guest on one of the daily editorials this week, that the impact of tourism (or lack there of) from Chinese citizens as things are on lock down and airline trips are reduced has not been fully accounted for in other countries. The Chinese people drive tourism in many other countries, and this lack of travel will have a broad-based ripple effect in a global economy that was already slowing down.

        All economies are quite interconnected at this point, and if there are less tourists and money flows into key destinations, then those businesses need to cut back hours or staff, and then those workers have less funds to spend in their own respective markets, and so on….
