Even after five years of crisis, recession — some even say depression — this US economy is still the largest in the world.
It has enormous influence over the direction of financial markets and your investments. But will its trillion dollars in government debt prove the end of the Empire? Or can resurgent industries like technology and energy put America back on the front foot?
We’ll leave it to you to make up your own mind after reading from this diverse group of analysts.
Donald J Trump in the White House…and now sits in a monstrous tower of some $64 trillion in debt, ready to blow up.
Think you’re going to change this system by voting for Hillary or Trump, Democrat or Republican? Maybe, but there’s no evidence of it in the CFR.
Will Donald Trump perform his first miracle, multiplying the loaves and fishes? Or is that ‘bond rout’ telling us something important? That the creditors won’t sit still for it?
Who is part of the Deep State? What are their objectives? And why is the Deep State’s spying apparatus such a dangerous, growing threat to your freedoms?

The fact that large swaths of the unwashed masses around the world have revolted has sent global elites into a state of mass hysteria…
The coming disaster is financial…and economic. The authorities are determined to win a war: a war against markets.
From Silicon Valley to new, smaller tech centres emerging across the country, American technology now finds itself on an equal plane with the rest of the world…
Ultimately, the question is not whether there will be a disaster during Mr Trump’s time in the White House. It’s what kind of a disaster it will be.
It is almost as though they never intended to win. They know that the longer the war goes on, the more money flows into the swamp…and stays there.
The entire world has a debt problem — with $223 trillion in debt, about three times global GDP. The US has a big piece of that — $63 trillion of the debt.
Apply the Reagan administration as a frame of reference to compare president-elect Trump. Doing so we can see what expectations might be for the economy.
Debt is a drag on growth. Money that could once have been spent in the economy is being diverted to principal and interest payments.
Markets have been calm over the Thanksgiving holiday. Americans — distracted by friends and family — had better things to do than panic.
