Hate is not the issue.

That was 2012. I don't think the country is any better off now.

I am gonna give you one hour to edit this post and then I am reporting this to one of the aphabet agencies.

Joking aside, anyone who has actually spent time in real 1st world countries (Switzerland, Japan, Singapore...even Oz) knows that America is rapidly falling into 3rd world status.

It's not politics. The theme is that investment decisions based on infallibility of the US may not be wise.

Bullshit. That clip is laden with politics.

For example: "we waged wars on poverty, not on poor people..."

Keep that shit where it belongs.

Edit: If you want to make a point about economic outlook, make it without posting up drivel like that.

When someone says "...the US is the greatest country in the world therefore invest like this..." then disagreement is fair.

And just because a political viewpoint asserts X doesn't mean that asserting X is political.

I'm with everyone else. Your video has nothing to do with investing and you're in an investing thread. If it does, no one sees it and if you are trying to make a point just do it. You can use politics to explain your position but keep the focus on investing.
Let's get back to investing.

What do you all think of this? That doesn't affect me much but I'm sure this stirs the pot. Buffet bracing for a crash yet we've already had one. Bounced and haven't tested the bottom for a second time. What is he fearful of? The same thing I am. That we are far from the bottom on this one.

Get back to the topic gents.

The vid is a great clip but I did not pick up anything that helps to target a good investment.

No explanation necessary. Let’s move on please.

Could be.

There are two fairly obvious and strong opposing forces at work here:

One is that we're in a very steep recession already (and that is the best-case scenario). Spending in a huge swath of the economy has stopped dead in its tracks. Kiplinger's forecast is -30% GDP (yes, 30!) for Q2, followed by a "major bounceback" in 2H netting in -4% for the year.

That is a strong signal to sell and keep your powder dry.

On the other hand, you have the hugely inflationary effect of 2 Trillion dollars just uncorked, with likely more to come. Interest rates, at least for now will stay low or perhaps even go lower.

Which is a signal, absent other factors to buy and load up on cheap debt to do so.

I think that which way it will break depends on how soon and quick the recovery is.

The largest economy in the world just went into cardiac arrest, and the bet is if the paddles will work (or more accurately, how many jolts it will take). I'm guessing the recovery won't be as fast as many hope and we're in for a long slog. But it is just that, a guess. We're in uncharted territory, so anyone that tells you they know for sure how this plays out is likely either a fool or selling something.
