American Tort Law is a mess FJK - and not just in health care, in everything. The basic problem is negligence does not have to be proved - basically "something bad has happened to me - someone with Deep Pockets must pay me money", that is a circus rather than a legal system. However, the main problems leading to the increase of health costs in the United States (over decades) are the government subsidy schemes (here David Ricardo, two centuries ago, could work out how subsidies inflate costs) and the endlessly increasing regulations. Sadly I do not see President Donald Trump as someone who is going to roll back either the endlessly increasing government subsidies, or the endlessly increasing regulations.

And while we are looking at President Elect Donald J. Trump - he is (as predicted) talking about yet more government "infrastructure" spending. Just like Mrs Clinton was promising - and just like Barack Obama in 2009. "Meet the New Boss - same as the Old Boss".

Still at least the vote rigging boasted of by members of the Clinton Campaign (not aware they were being filmed by the hidden cameras of Project Veritas) has been defeated in the Presidential election - let us hope that the Democrat vote rigging is defeated in the North Carolina Governor election also.

What is wrong with the media? The Democrats boast of vote rigging - and the media ignore the story. And the Democrats (again we know this because of leaked e.mails and hidden camera conversations) boast of organising violent incidents at Trump campaign events, and organising the riots now (the busses of Mr George Soros and so on) - and the media ignore this story also. No wonder many Americans just assume that the "mainstream media" (like the education system) is just an extension of the Progressive movement and the Democratic Party.

The Credit Bubble economy carries on. Mr Trump will do nothing to fix it - and will (most likely) react to the collapse of the Credit Bubble with an orgy of government spending and regulations - just as Mrs Clinton would have. Oh well at least the Supreme Court appointments will (hopefully) not be of the fanatical haters of the United States Constitution that Mrs Clinton would have appointed.

OK looks like commodities are rising. inflation is starting to appear.

It may well be so - but who knows when the bubble will burst.

probably when interest rates hit 5%

The cutting off the ILLEGAL subsidies to insurance companies under Obamacare and the (admittedly very limited) deregulation shows that President Donald Trump is not as bad as I feared he would be. Perhaps I was WRONG about him.

However, the monetary and banking ("financial industry") position is hopeless. And if one examines the "Debt Clock" (the 20 trillion official Federal debt - and the unfunded liabilities, Medicare and so on) make the fiscal position unsustainable. Bankruptcy, in fact if not in law, is inevitable.

If I wasn't in debt right now, I'd be converting 80% of my savings to gold and silver. But, since I am in debt, I guess the sooner they hyper-inflate the currency the sooner I can pay it all off!

well, the pop has not yet happened, despite experts saying it would have. should happen soon, the next two years would seem likely.
although gold is the staple of risk aversion, if it is only the usa currency/economy going down, it would make sense to invest other currencies. but looks like bitcoin has taken up a lot of the investment.
hope china doesn't collapse or that will mean hard times.

Gold seems the best bet to me. As long as one means physical gold - not the fake paper "gold" sold in the Western "gold markets" (the price of that is going down - because people know it does not really exist).

So far I have been WRONG about President Trump - there has been no orgy of Corporate Welfare "infrastructure" spending and no new Welfare State schemes (unlike President Bush 43 with his "No Child Left Behind" and Medicare Part.....).

Indeed taxes have been (modestly) cut and there has been some deregulation - for example of coal and oil production (in direct COMPETITION with Russia - take that conspiracy theorists of the "mainstream media"), and manufacturing (in competition with China).

However, government Welfare State ("entitlement" spending) remains out-of-control - and the vast Federal Reserve Credit-Money bubble looms over everything.
