The economy is on the brink of some problems and the dips in the
administration are doing nothing but worrying about if they can get pro
life judges in or if some homosexuals might marry.
China has refused to revalue its currency. This take away most of the
advantage of a dropping currency. Huge trade deficients with china are
increasing the worry of world wide investors upon which we depend on for
more than 43% of our bond sales. Tax cuts have made us noted less valuable
to american wealthy and huge trade and budget deficients have made those
same bonds less valuable to foreign investors.
The net result can lead to inflation. A definite cooling of the economy
will occur as interest rates climb. But unless interest rates climb more
will pass on US securities.
