It's not my prediction it is the bookmakers.

Trump is not a fool.  He is playing a game that is working.  I think his attitude will shape up once he gets into the oval office.  I think Trump is the most honest.  It may not be politically correct to say that we need to kick Illegals out of this country.  But I'm sure I could defeat any argument brought forth that suggests otherwise.

Come on. He is a big fraud. Making a mockery out of the elections (& Republicans). Remember what he said below (1998)!

 

But you're right. He is playing a game that is working so far. It'll be only quotes like this that will let the voters see what type of guy he really is:

We are way off topic, but the whole section is called Off Topic. We need immigrants or no one will pay the old farts social security. We have a serious demographics issue and maybe Gaius is just talking about illegals. How do we find them? I am all for making it easier to immigrate legally. Most so called Americans couldn't pass the immigration test. Gaius did you agree with Trump on "keeping all Muslims out of the country until we figure out what the hell is going on?"

Who is not an immigrant other than Native Americans?

zero-interest-rate-policy

The Japanese surely top this. They are ahead of us a few decades. On a 10 year loan you were already receiving interest instead of paying for your debt. Soon you will on your 15 year too. They have already arrived at new record lows today:

This is what always amazes me. The South is firmly in the pockets of the Republicans and yet they are the poorest states in the Union and most dependent on government handouts. They vote against their own best interest.

Japan is implementing negative interest rates. And in other news, it looks like they ran out of nail guns so here is the alternative:

Yes, what happened is, I attended the January 2016 meeting and mentioned tablecoins as the solution.

One of the best ways to determine if we're doing a good job of saving is evaluating our ability to handle unforeseen expenses. And, in this area, we're failing miserably.

 
According to a Federal Reserve report, nearly half of Americans couldn't cover a $400 emergency expense without borrowing the money or selling something. More than half of households have less than one month's worth of income in a readily available savings account, far from the six-month emergency fund many experts recommend.
 
Even more alarming is that many people have no savings at all. In fact, almost 30% report having a zero balance, and 62% have less than $1,000 in savings, according to a survey by GOBankingRates.com. An additional 21% report having no savings account whatsoever.
 
Many people assume they'll make the same amount of money in the future, but this is a bad assumption to make. In fact, according to a report by the Pew Charitable Trusts, almost half of households will experience a 25% change in income in any given two-year period, either up or down.
 
The point is that an emergency fund is absolutely essential to financial health. Without the ability to cover unforeseen expenses, it can be extremely difficult to stick to a retirement savings plan or to prevent taking on excessive credit card debt. And, without adequate savings, a sudden drop in income can be catastrophic.
 
It may surprise you (or not) to learn that the average American has saved significantly less than they're likely to need for retirement. The short version is that the median retirement savings  $63,000, but it's more helpful to look at the data by age group. According to Fidelity, here's how much Americans should have in retirement  as a multiple of their annual income. Since the average household earns just under $54,000, I've also included what the average should be for each age group.
 
However, a recent study by Transamerica shows that in reality, the average American is pretty far behind.
 
For example, according to the first table, the average 55-year-old should have $378,000 saved for retirement, but we can see from the actual data that the average 50-something actually has less than a third of this amount.
In fairness, this includes savings in retirement accounts such as 401(k)s and IRAs, but some workers also have defined  plans (such as pensions) that are not included in this data. Even so, the average study participant estimated they would need about $1 million to retire comfortably, so it's safe to say most people have some work to do.

TPTB control all players (media, politicians, Ceos, ...)

Inside information is everything, Newspapers control expectations,
Political puppets create facts ...

TPTB know when it is going down and when it is going up. Volatility makes them rich and us poor.

Anyone who believes, that Yellen is keeping the information regarding the Fed's future policy for herself also believes, that wtc7 and this car http://i.imgur.com/mr9E9oM.jpg were destroyed due to internal fires

you asked this question and out of kindness I came here to answer.

You don't have to be an expert on knowing people to see, that the financial markets are all rigged. The Fed's inside information about the future monetary policy is worth trillions for banks and hedge funds. Of course Yellen shares this inside information with her buddies from Goldman Sachs. Foreknowledge is everything on the financial markets. TPTB have the foreknowledge. They know in advance, when it is going up and when it is going down. They  win. We don't have the foreknowledge and lose.

Volatility is crazy. TPTB create this volatility. All the up and down makes them rich and us poor.
