    Here's how trickle-down economics has "contributed" to the U.S. economy and society.

    "Ideally, all those savings (the savings of the top 1%) would be channeled into productive investments such as research and development, or practical equipment, or new roads, or even new yachts—investments that would promote growth in the economy. However, from 2000 through 2016, the average annual savings of the top 1 percent exceeded average annual net domestic investment as a percentage of GDP, according to Mian, Straub, and Sufi. While the rich saved more, investment in productive assets declined.

    The researchers argue that those savings were put to use financing both household and government debt. Comparing the 1960s and ’70s with the period between 2000 and 2016, they find that claims on household and government debt account for nearly two-thirds of the rise in asset accumulation of the top 1 percent in the US. ...many households in the lower 90 percent continue to spend more than they can save, with their debt indirectly financed by the 1 percent’s growing assets."


    "The bottom 90 percent’s debt has largely become the top 1 percent’s financial asset

    As US income inequality began a marked increase in the 1980s, the richest 1 percent of households increased their savings while the bottom 90 percent fell into debt. Research finds that lenders indirectly used the top 1 percent’s savings to finance this borrowing, essentially enabling the rich to benefit from the bottom 90 percent’s debt repayments."


    "“The bottom 90 percent are being convinced to borrow more and more, through lower interest rates, easier credit, and more advertising,” Sufi says."


    For the article from which the above quotes were taken, google the following, as written:

    I am not the smartest guy in the room but if the big money is pouring into bonds at 1.4% yields isn't that an indication that they see major problems ahead for equities or other assets? looks like they are more worried about the return of their investment than the return on their investment.

    "The market" must have expected higher than expected inflation. Why else would yields go down resulting in $TLT and $QQQ going up on higher than expected inflation data?

    This week we found out. Israeli health officials released a report showing that vaccinated young people, particularly young men, were developing a potentially fatal complication, a heart inflammation called myocarditis, and they were developing it at extremely high rates.

    Researchers determined that the incidence of myocarditis in vaccinated young men was fully 25 times the usual rate, some of them died.

    Unreal....all to enrich big pharma, less 10% for the "big guy" of course........

    Social Distancing defintion: A commercial Real Estate Metric used to reduce rent. All is determined by sales per square foot. If you implemnt social distancing you basically reduce the "Rentable Square footage" basically getting a discount on rent. or say 50% off. Interesting..how social distancing is more of a commercial real estate and retail metric that helps them out. What perfect timing too! Right when the malls restructure in the first half of 2020 and office space leasing contracts are renegotiated. That pandemic came just right in time.
