Economy Contracting but Expect Higher Stock Prices

The United States is the world's largest and most diversified economy! It is currently suffering through a protracted period of slow growth which has held down job creation and labor market participation. The Pew Research Center reported, in late 2015, that a mere 19% of Americans trust the government either always or most of the time.

The FED must print more money in order to keep the party going forward.

The bottom line is that this current bull market has been driven mostly by corporations which are buying back their shares, over the years. Individual investors have increasingly been moving out of equity mutual funds and into equity ETF's.

Equity ETF Inflows 2003-2017

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported that in fiscal year 2016, the federal budget deficit increased in relation to the GDP, for the first time since 2009. The CBO projects that over the next decade, budget deficits will follow an upward trajectory. The spending costs for retirement and health care programs targeted towards senior citizens, and rising interest payments on the government's debt will be the root drivers. There will be only a modest growth in revenue collections. This will drive up public debt to its' highest level of gross domestic product (GDP) since shortly after World War II ended.

The Congressional Budget Office stated that the nation's public debt will reach 145 percent of gross domestic product by 2047

Federal Debt Held by the Public 1790-2030
