The stock market has lost all its gains right now for the year; even in the beginning of the year the Dow stood at about 26300, it is now about 23600. All of this means that companies will have less capital to do things, so that will mean a slow down or even an recession. The consequences will be serious. Trillions of capital left the market; and Trump fights over a "wall".
What is wrong with this picture? The biggest mistake is appointing "freedom caucus" assholes, like Navarro, Meadows, Jordan, Ross, Mulvany etc. who have the wrong view about the world as well trade and its effect on the economy if you tinker with it via tariffs. The notion of "America first" as an "bully" in an porcelain shop, does have an negative effect on the economy as has been proven now.
All of this shows that the "baby" we have chosen to be our leader has no clue about the world, let alone "trade" or the real interaction of the requirement of having "experienced" "world educated" people who deal daily in international trade and know the complexity of it all.
All of this incompetence will be detrimental to the future of this "banana republic island".
Like I've said so many times; the "chaos" right now is self inflicted due to not having proper laws/rules/ discipline/education/ nor proper vetting of our leaders/ qualifications/as well not limiting the powers of our leaders ( should be "black and white" written in our "laws" and "operating manuals" which are missing).
For instance make it mandatory that the tax returns are shown, that they have the proper education for the job, especially for the higher functions university or higher, international experience, world knowledge, knows the laws here inside out, studied economy, have an stringent background check, know the history of the world , have stamina and manners, know what real is and what is fake, have learned about other cultures and forms of government, have common sense, etc etc. I could go on and on. Just going to church should not be an requirement but should be viewed as being an negative.
