    We avoided a recession by feeding cash from the fed. This was destined to occur.

    "US Government Agencies like the Treasury Department and The Federal Reserve"...The 12 banks of the Federal Reserve are essentially private corporations, not US Government Agencies. The Board of Governors is a governmental agency tasked with oversight and reporting, but each back retains its own board apart from the board of governors.

    Where's the miracle? Try it yourself; borrow huge sums to spend on your family, and feel the temporary wealth effect. But be sure to ignore the interest payments and your balance sheet that is coming due, either in bankruptcies or massive inflation which will be absolutely crushing.

    Actually the Fed was responsible for the depression, as it wasn't a recession. They knew the banks were over extending and selling crap stocks to innocent people. My wife and I went from half a million invested to twenty thousand, not because we withdrew money but because it evaporated. Greenspan had gotten so powerful he could say something unofficially and Wall Street would respond in panic. Using Bernie Sanders a socialist as a spokes person is stupid as he's one of those rich people he wants to "take the money from' What he really wants to do is add to his own pocket. I'd make a better president than any of the demos that are currently running and I don't want the job. Obuma should have made the banks accountable and sent them to jail, instead he allowed them to give top people large bonus. Had he given 10 grand to everyone making less then $100,000 dollars the economy would have been back on track almost instantly. Instead he wanted to help out his pals who had supported him. What he did was treason. No bank is so big it can't fail and they should have all failed and been sold to anyone who wanted to buy them that was American.

    The stock market benefits the rich and doesn't help the poor the way it's set up. For us to stabilize America, we need bipartisan leadership under the Constitution, by our forefathers, that gives us Freedom, Choice, and Equality to all. However, Trump's Partisan Alien Republican Government hurts America by ignoring the Constitution and increasing the wealth of the rich and making the poor people poorer. A strong economy does not balance what was taken away from America. We have hate created by Trump. We have gone deeper into peacetime debt than we ever have. Poverty has grown and rich people have become a lot richer under Trump. We have changed a Proud America to a Bewildered America...

The recession isnt going to happen over housing. My money(literally) is on massive inflation because of mass labor shortages, or collapse of dollar

    Want to totally blow a Democrats Mind and make them cry even more? Remind them idiots if Trump is Impeached in the house & not in the senate and is acquitted in the senate, he can run 2 more times. The U.S. Constitution states that if a president is impeached by the House but not by the senate, That sitting president that was impeached by the House that sitting president first term is nullified and they are 100% eligible for office of the president 2 more times that means Trump will be president for a total of 12 years! LOOK IT UP YOU IDIOT DEMOCRATS!

    The richest 1% feed 100%. If you are 1 of the 99% percent who has not contributed to meaningful wealth creation you are a leech. You say you go to work and make income but what in fact is happening is you are taking from the revenue made by someone else. You company makes revenue and they are kind enough to give you a cut as a gesture of good will though you didn't contribute to wealth and job creation one ioda. You risked nothing and invested nothing yet somehow you still get to eat. That is the injustice.

    President's have always played fast and loose with reality when it comes to how they describe the state of the U.S. economy. The current administration is only the latest group whose decisions have weakened not strengthened the stability of our economy and, by extension, our society. ideological bias (or blindness) is a major part of the problem. Whether there is a Republican or a Democrat in the White House this problem exists. Each party relies on experts trained in economics that adhere to macroeconomic theories and policies that have proven ineffective at preventing either recessions or inflation. Neither demand management nor supply-side economic policies nor money, interest and credit supply policies have worked. The nation has experienced a dozen recessionary downturns -- some more serious than others -- just since the end of the Second World War. We are, I believe, headed for another downturn that will look far more like 1932 than even 2008. Back in 2014 I gave a talk at the Henry George birthplace in Philadelphia describing the long series of bad policy decisions and changes in law that doomed our nation to ever-deeper cycles of boom and bust. The causes of these cyclical crises have always been there because powerful vested interests have made sure that a redistribution of income and wealth from producers to non-producing monopolistic and rent-seeking interests have been protected. Most of our elected representatives have participated in this game. Economic cycles are a particular outcome of a tax system that rewards speculation and passive investment over income earned producing goods and providing services. A reasonably progressive individual income tax and a high tax on inheritance and estates served to mitigate the worst effects. The delicate balance began to unravel beginning in the 1970s as the nation tried to respond to the rapid increase in the price of fossil fuels. Wage and price controls did not work. Financial deregulation began with changes in law permitting the first money market mutual funds, funds that eventually pulled billions of dollars from the nation's thrifts and causing the S&L Crisis of the late 1980s. Reagan era policies accelerated the problems by combining tax reductions with increased military spending. The era of perpetual deficit spending and climbing national debt was underway. The Clinton administration opened the gate to the "too big to fail" problem of banking with repeal of Glass-Steagal. One bad piece of legislation after another followed in administration after administration. The current administration has sealed our fate. No one is even asking where the funds will come from to service $30 trillion public debt
