Here's something alarming...

"The Fed's about to try something that almost always has ended in recession"

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/02/fed-bal ... ssion.html

"Fed economist: 'No evidence that QE works' as central bank starts unwinding program

... There's little question that the program, known as quantitative easing or "money printing," boosted the stock market. The three iterations of QE between November 2008 and October 2014 each saw big boosts to the market, with a cumulative S&P 500 gain from beginning to end, including the various down periods between each leg, of about 140 percent.

The economic impacts, though, are less clear.

For most of the period, GDP struggled to gain more than 2 percent. Wealth disparity grew, income gains were hard to come by and the Fed continually came up short on its inflation goal..."

Of course, why make this clear when your goal is to be alarmist. Let's just borrow and obfuscate any negative news we can find

It is clear to anybody that can read.

But hey - you can read minds (since you know what someone’s goal is) yet want someone to be clear for those that can actually read words.

The first post and article of this thread are in reference to Canada. Start another thread if you want to talk about US concerns - some of us don't give a shit about what happens in the US.

Right! What happens in the States will never affect Canada because it is in a universe of its own.

BTW, where were you during the financial crisis of 2008-9?

Yes, Canada banks fund their ten year mortgages from domestic deposits. Right!
