It likely explains why Trump did a 180 with Yellen: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-did-trump-flip-flop-on-yellen-she-may-be-the-dove-he-needs-analysts-say-2017-04-12
Just keep printing out dem shekels and everything will be alright.
Edit: As a reminder, we never got out of the recession. We currently have several bubbles (house, tech, car, student loan) running at once. Even if Trump has a flawless financial strategy moving forward, you still have these yuge and bigly bubbles that can only pop in the shittiest way possible. Bringing in more jobs isn't going to cover up for the fact that banks are now lending to minorities who make $25,000 a year but if you don't give them a $500,000 mortgage, you are rayciss.
Serious question: When have we not been in a bubble? This entire thread is basically the equivalent of the guys who say the apocalypse is coming every single year; you're wrong constantly because you only have to be right once to say told ya so.
The 1970's when Nixon allowed emission of credit unbacked by any other medium. The dollar became the primary asset then that took the place of every other currency's backing because it would be the primary exchange medium for oil and mass manufacturing and transport was reaching the third world.
Every bubble hasn't been dealt with short of inflating it more since then. Reagan basically took real money coming in (Social Security) and exchanged it for bonds, Clinton repealed Glass Steagall which set the stage for the Dot Com bubble of banks getting into business investment directly, Bush spent a ton on stimulus and did nothing to stop housing from turning into investment assets, and Lord Purpa put the Fed on the line for every college loan out there (also auto loans are at an all time high too).
The bubble will never burst until productivity wanes and nominal assets get exchanged back for tangible ones, which is right when millions of Americans will be retiring in the next 10-15 years. They'll also need trillions of dollars in health care which will push productive investment out of the American economy. This is not to say we're going to assless chaps Mad Max style but it just means there will be a very real shift of power, probably weakening the US somewhat and completely cratering Federal government power compared to local/state law and corporate power (when your currency is a shitwipe your government is a joke, just ask Greece).
FYI here is the nominal credit in the US: https://www.rt.com/usa/166352-us-total-debt-sixty-trillion/
Note in the 1980's it was about 5 trillion when GDP was 4 trillion. Now it's $60 trillion when GDP is $17 trillion. That was also when the demographic of the US was a lot younger and a more responsible generation was in charge.
Gold bugs are idiots but if you don't have a good amount of money tied up in real assets that people will want - housing not in Niggerville, widely valued collectibles, difficult to obtain equipment, not a bad time to start getting some.
