    Reports indicate that the stock market has already picked the next US president: President Hillary Clinton. “The market appears to have decided not only that [Hillary] Clinton will win, but that it won’t be close,” David Woo, a strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said in a report circulated today.

    Personally I find it hard to predict how the market would react to certain events, but I'm not a stock market analyst so I generally rely on the experts--in this case, Bank America ML. In any event, the analysis appears to be consistent with what's happening on the political and social front, so who am I to doubt it.

    Right - and the City of London had "remain" baked into the FTSE before the Brexit vote too.
    What no one talks about is that 0% interest is not really stimulating the economy....

    The low interest rate that is not stimulating the economy is the reason why Hillary is proposing to use to bolster infrastructure projects to stimulate more jobs in the economy, especially jobs for those who occupations are now obsolete in the modern economy. For Trump supporters, it should be noted that Trump proposes to spend even more than Hillary based on the historic low interest rate.

    In Europe, the politicians there were and are hypnotized by the conservatism wisdom of no spending, belt tightening austerity measure that is now depressing the entire continent. In contrast, Obama in 2008 was able to get some money from all the votes of the Democrats in Congress and zero votes from Republicans to pass the spending measure which our economy is enjoying to this day. But it was not enough.

    Madam President will see you all at her inauguration in January 2017.

    By the way, anyone who mentions Brexit in relation to this presidential election as if Brexit somehow is relevant or persuasive has no idea what he's talking about. In fact, heaven forbid that anything even close to Brexit would occur in the US because we now know the significant negative consequences of that stupid mistake. Just yesterday, Theresa May was told by President Barack Obama that the UK would not be the priority for a US trade deal; likewise, Japan issued an unprecedented 15-page warning about the consequences of Brexit. In particular, Tokyo gave May a list of possible consequences of Brexit and a series of specific requests from Japanese businesses--about half of Japanese investment in the EU comes to the UK, including from companies such as Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nomura and Daiwa. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/sep/04/g20-theresa-may-warns-of-tough-times-for-uk-economy-after-brexit.

    Anyone who's enamored with Brexit should rethink his or her position. Brexit has caused the pound to tumble to a 31-year low, and it continues to fluctuate. See, e.g., http://www.financemagnates.com/forex/bloggers/brexit-impact-rise-fall-british-pound-explained/; http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/f6652d82-434b-11e6-b22f-79eb4891c97d.html. For our sake, I hope nothing even remotely comparable to the effects of Brexit is visited upon the US.
