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.

Terrible that President Trump signed the omnibus spending Bill (a wild spending mess) - he totally caved to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan. There is no "60 votes in the Senate" rule in the United States Constitution - Mitch McConnell uses it as as an excuse for not passing a proper budget. Without a basic budget passed by simple majority vote, the spending mess will continue - till bankruptcy.

trump has the worst ratings for time in office in history. very bad president. expect huge deficits then a collapse in 2020.

The ratings are the product of the constant media propaganda. But the wild spending is his own fault - he should have presented a proper budget and insisted it be passed by 51 votes in the Senate (no 60 vote nonsense).

But then Donald Trump would have been Ted Cruz (who had detailed measures for dealing with the wild government spending) and he is not Ted Cruz.

The American House of Representatives has fallen to the Democrats - who will do nothing to stop the growth of the "Entitlements", but the Republicans had also done nothing to stop this, so no-change-there-then.

The Senate remains in Republican hands - so judicial appointments will not be decided by Frankfurt School of Marxism types (which is who the Democrats appear to be these days). And Ted Cruz, someone who (horror of horrors) actually believes that government should be rolled back, won reelection - not even 70 million Dollars and a vicious campaign against him by the "mainstream" media (both news and entertainment media) could unseat him (although the collectivists came close).

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

People in the hire tax brackets paid MORE money to the Federal government last year (2018) than ever before - so the idea that "tax cuts for the rich" caused the deficit is false.

The problem is government spending - the vast majority of which goes on the Welfare Stare (health care, income support and so on) which not totally dwarfs to defence spending. The Federal Government was created to defend the United States (the other spending is mostly unconstitutional), but now military spending makes up only a fraction of the budget.

Truth in Accounting website.

Most indebted city (even per person) - New York, although Chicago is also awful (as are so many cities).

Most indebted State (per person) - New Jersey, although many other States are also heading towards bankruptcy (especially if one counts unfunded liabilities - pension and benefit stuff).

Only a handful of States, for example South Dakota, are actually in a healthy position financially.

The Federal Government?

A total nightmare - more than 20 Trillion Dollars of official debt, plus Trillions of Dollars of unfunded future liabilities (the "Entitlement State").
