Donald Trump warns of US stock market bubble

The current front-runner for the Republican nomination for the US presidency claims that there is a ‘bubble’ that is growing in the US stock market because of actions by regulators:

October 15, 2015

Donald Trump, billionaire businessman and presidential poll frontrunner for the Republican Party, said America needs to be alert – the stock market bubble is about to burst, due in large part to the regulatory atmosphere created by the Democratic-supported Dodd-Frank as well as to Federal Reserve manipulation of interest rates.

In an interview with the Hill, Trump also vowed he’d repeal Dodd-Frank, the financial reform package effected in 2010 and praised by Democratic Party hopefuls on the CNN stage of their first televised debate.

“Under Dodd-Frank, the regulators are running the banks,” Trump said, Breitbart reported. “The bankers are petrified of the regulators. And the problem is that the banks aren’t loaning money to people who will create jobs.”

Democrats insist Dodd-Frank controls Wall Street and prevents the economy from collapsing by giving regulators the power they need to exert proper oversight. But Republicans criticize the law as punitive on small businesses, one of the driving forces of America’s economic growth.

Trump said the regulation has done little to stop America’s economy from tanking – and has rather brought about the opposite scenario.

“We have Dodd-Frank and we’re in a bubble right now anyway,” he said. And one example? As Breitbart reported, he pointed to some social media companies that enter the world financial stage with public offerings worth “billions,” before they’ve “even made 10 cents,” Trump said.

Trump also slammed Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen for artifically suppressing interest rates for political reasons, because President Obama “doesn’t want to have a recession-slash-depression during his administration,” he said.  …

He went on …“Look no further than what happened to Wal-Mart today for confirmation we are in the midst of a worldwide recession, if not depression. Their stock fell by 10 [percent], the largest one day loss in their history as a public company. Their stock is down 30 [percent] this year,” the reported. “All economic indicators are flashing red and warning of recession. Retail sales, that account for two thirds of economic activity, are falling. Corporate profits are plunging. Middle class Americans haven’t seen their household income rise since 1989. The last two employment reports were horrific. The number of job layoff announcements by corporations is up 36 [percent] year to date and has already exceeded the total for 2014.”

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump accused Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen of keeping interest rates low to prevent President Barack Obama from leaving office under a recession in an interview with the Hill Wednesday. The New York businessman also said the stock market is in another bubble that will soon pop.

“She’s keeping the economy going, barely,” Trump said of Yellen. “The reason they’re keeping the interest rate down is Obama doesn’t want to have a recession-slash-depression during his administration.”

Economists have been watching the Federal Reserve closely in recent months, and expect the agency to raise the interest rate, which has stayed close to zero percent since the 2008 financial crisis. U.S. stocks have risen over the past seven years, but the Fed has explained its low interest rate by citing low inflation and the still uncertain global economy.

“You know who gets hurt the most? People who practice the American dream and did what should have been the right way — the people that went through 40 years of their life and saved a hundred dollars every week [in the bank],” Trump said in the interview. “They worked all their lives to save and now what happens is they’re being forced into an inflated stock market and at some point they’ll get wiped out.”

Trump also took a swipe at the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law, saying that it has hurt economic growth in the U.S. and that he would “absolutely” repeal it.

Although ‘bubble’ may or may not be the best analogy, the reality is that federal regulators and the Federal Reserve (which is neither a branch of the US federal government nor does it have real ‘reserves’) have been manipulating financial markets and setting the USA up for disaster.

The US Federal Reserve has tended to try to prop up the US stock markets, basically successfully, for the past couple of decades. It has artificially reduced interest rates by creating money (yes, they basically make it out of thin air, by creating electronic money and issuing US treasury notes as collateral).  This is a recipe for disaster–disaster that the Bible does prophesy (Habakkuk 2:6-8).

If US interest rates rise to levels such as seen in the 1980s, the USA would be faced with the situation that just the interest on its debt would exceed all of its tax revenues.  It is more than a stock market bubble.

Many potential voters seem to believe that Donald Trump is the best Republican candidate when it comes to the economy.  Notice something from a poll in South Carolina:

October 15, 2015

The panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” reacted on Thursday to the latest round of CNN/ORC polls showing Donald Trump dominating the GOP field in key states and on several key issues.

In addition to leading big in Nevada, South Carolina, 67 percent of polled voters also feel Trump is best equipped to handle the economy. The next closest candidate on the issue was Carly Fiorina at 7 percent.

Others consider that Donald Trump’s economic proposals would be not be successful.  Notice two news source headlines:

Donald Trump’s disastrous economic plan

As a businessman, Donald Trump has more practical real world economic experience than most of the candidates for the office of US President.  That could, in theory, be an advantage if he were to be elected, despite whatever flaws he or his proposals have.

However, what Donald Trump and others do not realize is that debt was a curse that God warned would come to the disobedient.

While there are physical steps that could be done to vastly attempt to improve the economy of the USA, relatively few of them will be attempted and without national repentance, they will not work for long (though they could delay the ‘day of reckoning’ in a sense consistent with Daniel 4:27).

As far as debt goes, “The United States has the largest debt in the world” (US News & World Report – Jan 28, 2011 And the Bible clearly warns that certain disobedient will become an indebted people–and they will be destroyed by people whose language that they do not understand, and that the destruction will be fairly total:

43 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. 45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed…47 “Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the LORD will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. 51 And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you. 52 They shall besiege you at all your gates until your high and fortified walls, in which you trust, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you at all your gates throughout all your land which the LORD your God has given you (Deuteronomy 28:42-45,47-52).

7 The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

13 And the Lord said, “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts…16 I will scatter them also among the Gentiles, whom neither they nor their fathers have known. And I will send a sword after them until I have consumed them.” (Jeremiah 9:13,14a,16)

12 One-third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them. (Ezekiel 5:12)

Getting in debt is considered to be a curse (see also the YouTube video The Debt Crisis Will Be Worse Than Most Imagine).

The debt situation of the USA is putting it at risk of being unable to recover should it be hit by weather problems, terrorist acts, war, riots, solar flares, severe earthquakes, civil unrest, devastation of their genetically-modified food supplies, food shortages, and/or various pestilences–an intensity of “sorrows” such as Jesus discussed in Matthew 24:4-8 leading up to the time of the Great Tribulation. Disasters such as pestilences, especially if there is an ElectroMagnetic Pulse (emp) attack or a severe solar flare storm, could be part of a so-called “perfect storm” of events that could set the USA for destruction (Daniel 11:39).

Donald Trump cannot prevent this, but he is right that there are major risks and problems with the economy of the USA.  The kingdom of God, however, is the answer and that is something he does not realize.
