Markets hate uncertainty and fear inflation of which there is none.    The Fed is trying to torpedo Trump’s booming economy, unnecessarily pushing up rates.

There is a 100% chance that the market WILL NOT drop before the election. Same odds that the "not so" federal reserve will raise rates before 2017. No incumbent party has ever won an election after a considerable stock market decrease.

Federal Reserve Money Printing Is The Real Reason Why The Stock Market Is Soaring

Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

You can thank the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing for the incredible bull market that we have seen in recent months.  When the Federal Reserve does more "quantitative easing", it is the financial markets that benefit the most.  The Dow and the S&P 500 this month have both hit levels not seen since 2007, and many analysts are projecting that 2013 will be a banner year for stocks.  But is a rising stock market really a sign that the overall economy is rapidly improving as many are suggesting?

Of course not. Just because the Federal Reserve has inflated another false stock market bubble with a bunch of funny money does not mean that the U.S. economy is in great shape.  In fact, the truth is that things just keep getting worse for average Americans.  The percentage of working age Americans with a job has fallen from 60.6% to 58.6% while Barack Obama has been president, 40 percent of all American workers are making $20,000 a year or less, median household income has declined for four years in a row, and poverty in the United States is absolutely exploding.  So quantitative easing has definitely not made things better for the middle class.

Economic Judgment Day Is Approaching

The current debate about the debt vote is minor league compared with what will happen when the government literally cannot spend more than it is taking in. That time may be nearer than you think.

It is true that the U.S. government can always "print" money to pay its bills, but at some point, printing more money becomes self-defeating because the resulting increase in the government bond interest rate and required interest payment will spiral out of control.

At that point, the government will be forced to operate on a pay-as-you-go basis, as any individual or business is forced to do when they can no longer get credit. Several California cities are now in this situation.

Free trade cheats Americans

Mainstream economists have been stuck for years in the notion that any attack on “free trade” is heretical, but finally their dogma is cracking. Even the Washington Post now acknowledges that “trade liberalization” with China is a big reason for the decline of U.S. manufacturing jobs.

Forbes magazine published an article titled “America’s Manufacturing Crisis: Finally Harvard Gets It.” What academics finally “get” is that it is, indeed, a disaster for America to lose our manufacturing base specifically because that causes us to lose our “ability to innovate.”

The theorists held onto their out-of-date free-trade theory despite the loss of millions of outsourced jobs, despite 42,000 U.S. factories permanently closed and despite the loss of high blue-collar wages that could support a family. But our loss of innovation is finally waking them up.

Most people recognize that America’s prosperity and high standard of living depend on our remarkable power and skill of innovation produced by manufacturing. They should read Alexander Hamilton’s great 1791 treatise on the importance of manufacturing.
