And to follow up on your recession talk from the right, that is more the purview of the left as witnessed here:

There has been a call from the media and their sources for recession since the election. No recession.

Yeah, I work on Wall Street. Believe me, he's doing better for the economy than any president in the last 20 years (Including GW BUSH)

Pretty sad what people are willing to tolerate, accept, and allow for their short-term financial gain.

My portfolio has grown significantly in the past 3 years. My portfolio made massive gains in the 5 years prior to that. I attribute neither to the POTUS.

How so?

I work in mergers and acquisitions. I see daily what his polices have done for the US and overseas.

I voted for him

And he has done a better than average job. The Democratic's all seem to be a bit wacky, or in Washington to long.
So that’s my vote

No sense in arguing with you. You're clearly an anti-trump guy and I merely stated my take after working in the industry for years. I'm out on politics/religion on this forum. Lot of "try-hards" over here. PEACE

I think its you who needs to re-read and focus in on a few things.

There are times when the stock market, and the economy do well (2014, 2017).

There are times when the stock market does well, but the economy slows and lags (2019).

There are also times when the market tanks, but the economy does well (2018, 2015 to an extent).

The point is that just because the stock market does well, doesn't mean the economy is doing well. We are NOT in the best economy of our lifetimes, the market HAS done better in the past. Those two are not bad things, as the economy has proven to be very resilient and the markets have done well.

Not surprised the neither you, minn, or holligan could comprehend that.

Consider the source
I'm not sure why I'm trying, but here it goes.

The point of my post was just that. That the two may be related sometimes, but the stock market =/= the economy. Sometimes they move up together, sometimes they move apart, sometimes they both go down.

I'm noticing a pattern with you, when you are wrong you either ignore it (aka, people pointing out repeatedly that Trump has not, in fact, closed our border because of Covid19) or you dig in (as is the case here).
