    It is a set up so Trump can destroy the federal reserve system.

    It is all about the narrative and who is to blame when the dollar crashes.

    If Trump wins, and the anti-Christ tends to do so, the Treasury will take over.

    He's clearly forcing it. Look at his expression. Most be that post-ejaculate stream.

    What does everyone think is causing this growth? Is it because of the tax cuts?

    Tax cuts, massive regulations reform, and confidence in a buisiness friendly administration (ie, big buisiness not being scared of waking up to a new tax or regulation).


    It’s pretty fucking simple.

    First, the number you cite in the OP isn't a reliable indicator at this point in the quarter. But growth was pretty solid last quarter. The main thing is that this is about how fast the economy grows now when it's operating normally.

    Here's GDP over a long period:

    Here's quarterly growth since 2005:

    It's possible that high deficits can help, but I don't really see any growth acceleration that needs to be explained. Low interest rates are probably still helping. If you look at components, it's kind of a mix.

    This is the worrying thing. Real wages should be growing a LOT faster given the state of the economy (specifically, signs of a tight labor market and overall growth). Real wages actually *fell* in the most recent quarter, which is very surprising. And they're tracking a fall in the current quarter (though, again, that's not really reliable at this point).
