I think he should be afforded the chance to try and bring to fruition his pre-election plans, most of which do not include the headline grabbing Mexican wall or Muslim migration. He wants to bring change to an extraordinarily broken economic and political system, tongue in cheek he would even admit his mere election would be case in point to how broken things are.

Everyone has plenty of time to protest and cause more damage than good if and when he f***s up but for now they should allow the ship to sail unabated and see what happens. Stranger things of happened, he may be the greater economical leader they've ever had (I strongly emphasis MAY).

My prediction is that he will be the worst President of the USA in living memory, if not ever.

You're right it will be the most likely outcome but if this is the case I think it would be evident within 6-8 months and quickly and easily reversed. Rather than creating, violence and mayhem just so a few pig headed gen y lefties can get what they want right away.

Expect and prepare for the worst and when it happens transition smoothly.

Descending into spoilt brat violence will do more harm and possibly send them into an extreme civil divide. It's not completely ridiculous to envisage a civil war between far rights and centre to left wingers, not likely but if the left use violence it wouldn't take much for the trump supporter base to militarise in defence of what they would view as a manipulation of democracy.

Don't get me wrong, I hope that he's wonderful and I have to eat humble pie, that's a whole lot better than living in a broken world,

But I'm bracing myself for what I anticipate.

Here we are in complete agreement. He has promised a few very important changes eg introducing proper scientific safety studies for vaccines. With 170 new vaccines just approved this is imperative IMHO. We cannot just add all of these to the schedule without testing - it is another thalidomide waiting to happen if not already occurring.

Economic wise I also think he could get back to the real business of growth and away from all the financial shenanigans.

Definition of a doom and gloomer from 1993
The last camp is made up of the doom-and-gloomers. Their slogan is "it's the end of the world as we know it". Right now they are convinced that debt is the evil responsible for all our economic woes and must be eliminated at all cost. Many doom-and-gloomers believe that unprecedented debt levels mean that we are on the precipice of a worse crisis than the Great Depression. The doom-and-gloomers hang on the latest series of negative economic data.

He has the opportunity to get the economy humming if he sticks to his word. Back to old school Keynesian economics (from a Republican).

Markets already pricing in “reflation” and higher corporate profits on growth, and is now turning into a very crowded trade
Quote:
 
Hedge funds are piling in to the same bets ahead of the inauguration of US President-elect Donald Trump.

There are “extreme market positions in all asset classes,” according to Societe Generale, which said the “extreme positioning inevitably raises the question of whether investors have run ahead of themselves”.

The popular trades include:

“Net short positions on 10y Treasury notes are at historical highs, implying that rising US bond yields remains among hedge funds’ major convictions.”
“Hedge funds have (very) high expectations for the domestically oriented US small caps of the Russell 2000.”
“Historically long on copper and oil.”
The logic behind these trades is obvious. The Trump administration is expected to increase fiscal spending and focus on employment, which in turn could lead to higher inflation and higher rates. And his pro-business policies and plan to cut taxes are expected to benefit US-oriented stocks.

Just one problem - from Bloomberg....

Trump Team Seeking Deep Spending Cuts: The Hill

By Derek Wallbank

(Bloomberg) — President-elect Donald Trump’s team working blueprint would cut U.S. federal spending by $10.5t over 10 years, The Hill reports.

Plan similar to Heritage Foundation’s spending outline from last year, which also sought $10.5t in spending cuts; would be steeper than Republican Study Cmte’s FY2017 budget, which sought $8.6t in reductions over 10 yrs: The Hill
The Hill reports Russ Vought and John Gray leading effort
Trump team may release 175-200 page document with summary tables within 45 days and full budget by end of April

Fed could be cutting rates again by Xmas.
(S – I) + (T - G) + (M - X) = 0

Australian Property Forum is an economics and finance forum dedicated to discussion of Australian and global real estate markets and macroeconomics, including house prices, housing affordability, and the likelihood of a property crash. Is there an Australian housing bubble? Will house prices crash, boom or stagnate? Is the Australian property market a pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme? Can house prices really rise forever? These are the questions we address on Australian Property Forum, the premier real estate site for property bears, bulls, investors, and speculators. Members may also discuss matters related to finance, modern monetary theory (MMT), debt deflation, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Ethereum and Ripple, property investing, landlords, tenants, debt consolidation, reverse home equity loans, the housing shortage, negative gearing, capital gains tax, land tax and macro prudential regulation.

Forum Rules: The main forum may be used to discuss property, politics, economics and finance, precious metals, crypto currency, debt management, generational divides, climate change, sustainability, alternative energy, environmental topics, human rights or social justice issues, and other topics on a case by case basis.
