Coincidentally, I just returned from California after a 26-year high myself.

All this debt fuelled and loose money euphoria worries the hell out of me.

OMG- corporations are reaping a profit from neo-liberal, tax payer supported market fluctuations.

Nothing could make me happier over this New Year

What wonderful and surprising news.

Looking forward to the inevitable and concomitant news of wage stagnation and rising poverty!

ALL THANKS TO TRUMP!

I do this for a living. All you lefties can hate me. I am sorry, but he must be thee ONLY politician who has kept most of his promises that one could do under the circumstances.

He lost hundreds of millions of dollars of his own money, pageants cancelled, people selling condos, his OWN taxes increased..... he truly wants to make America awesome, thus the world, and not see an authoritarian globalist government enact a 1 world system. Thank God For Trump!

He lost hundreds of millions of dollars of his own money, pageants cancelled, people selling condos, his OWN taxes increased..... he truly wants to make America awesome, thus the world, and not see an authoritarian globalist government enact a 1 world system. pleeese. hes been bankrupt twice , over 3500 lawsuits and his personal wealth has increased. He screws the little guy for his own personal gain, and refuses to show his income taxes to show just how much tax he dodges. itll all come crashing down again when the deficit continues to rise and the bills have to be paid, America struggles to pay just the interest on its loans, Japan / China keep feeding the beast because without that it would all implode. thank you China & Japan for making the American illusion great again.

And the bubble continues to expand. And again...it will pop. In 1995 the Kobe earthquake was one of the triggering events (or perhaps the event that accelerated the decline).

One must wonder what the event will be which will burst the current bubble. Something to do with North Korea? Another great Kanto earthquake?

None of us here know what this might be but as history has proven something will initiate the next decline and it will not be as pretty as a few decades of economic stagnation this time.

I put a little more gold in the safe this New Year.
