The market volatility index (VIX) calmed down through Obama’s last year (2016) and Trump’s first year (2017), but spiked in 2018 and 2019. There is no sign that market volatility of the past two Trump years is calming down. The market liquidity index (which looks at the breadth of futures contracts) rose through Obama’s last year and Trump’s first year in a show of confidence. Then it plummeted in 2018 and has stayed low thus far in 2019.

Inflation? Deflation? Stagflation? Consecutively? Concurrently?… or from a great height (apologies to Tom Stoppard). We’ve reached a pivotal moment where all of the narratives of what is actually happening have come together. And it feels confusing. But it really isn’t. The central banks have run out of room to battle deflation. QE, ZIRP, NIRP, OMT, TARGET2, QT, ZOMG, BBQSauce! It all amounts to the same thing. How can we stuff fake money onto more fake balance sheets to maintain the illusion of price stability?

The main problem with the US economy is that globalism has been deconstructing it. The offshoring of US jobs has reduced US manufacturing and industrial capability and associated innovation, research, development, supply chains, consumer purchasing power, and tax base of state and local governments. Corporations have increased short-term profits at the expense of these long-term costs. In effect, the US economy is being moved out of the First World into the Third World.
