    Yellen says Trump doesn't have a grasp on macroeconomic policy

    Now this may cost the US billions...if not the corporations.
    The whole essence of the Federal Reserve is to make sure we have a stable economy and currency.

    The rest of the world uses US dollar as an investment, baseline and safety net.
    If he screws this up...our dollar devalues, our debt increases, our trade is more out of whack, our global corporations are impacted, etc and so on...

    I do hope he doesn't mess with the Fed...that could trigger another economic crisis and global recession.
    Dude...just let the experts do their thing...PLEASE

    But NO, he knows better than them.
    He knows better than anyone in all things. :rolleyes:

    I have no idea how the stock market is staying up where it is, except that there are large groups of rich people who will put their money in in order to prop it up under this administration.

    How does a food company go $31 billion in debt? It isn't like the products they sell, along with their revenue, changes all that much from year to year.

    Trump Seeks Huge Premium From Allies Hosting U.S. Troops

    We know he's doing...pricing them out.
    So we're asked to leave.

    Classic real estate move.

    You know he's setting it up so allied and NATO countries don't have American troops, weakening us still with these allies.

    It's a win-win for Putin again.

    I don't mind them paying...but these are US troops, America has an agenda and purpose there too...yes, the US should pay a portion too.
    They're not mercs.

    And asking for 150% is outlandish.

    Followup...in case anyone thought my sentiments were "liberal" or at least non-conservative
    Top House Republican Blasts Trump Plan To Charge Allies A Premium On U.S. Troops

    I've always like a logical projection of power
    Supporting alliances, even with some investment on the US' part.

    Low and behold, I find myself in sync with a Cheney.
    Politics is a strange beast.

    Then again, I've always said there's no black or white answer...it's not linear.
    Solutions are situational and dynamic.
    And there is negotiation...of different perspectives and emphasis

    Remember, whatever Trump is saying is not what is actually happening. His attacks on McCain, his caravan freakouts, his stirring up zombie Hillary conspiracies are all distractions from the criminal focus on him and his family. He will do whatever to keep himself and his kids out of jail.

    Does anyone actually believe trump's handpicked toady bob barr and his silly little spin letter? I sure as hell don't. The report needs to be released.

    TRump, in SOME cases, seems to have enough layers between himself and the questionable acts to give him plausible deniability.

    Is he incredibly lucky?

    Is he actually smart enough to intentionally create those layers?

    I'm guessing a combination of the two, with a larger percentage of the latter. TRump has decades of experience as a shyster/con man.

    One the the luckiest con men ever.

    TRump is a master of distraction, diversion and redirection.
