America's Payoff from Joining The New Silk Road: Optimism

Compulsive media-followers in the United States are relatively sure about what's going to happen in their near-term future: The government is going to shut down; millions of promising young people will be deported; an epidemic of more and more potent opiates will kill increasing tens of thousands of Americans; electronic surveillance of everyone, all the time, will continue indefinitely; President Trump's planned $1 trillion initiative to build new infrastructure won't happen; wars will continue in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and Africa, and we'll likely go to war with Russia in Europe or over North Korea in Asia.

The warnings are multiplying that the immense corporate debt bubble is getting ready to collapse, and drastically cutting those corporations' taxes will only force more air into that bubble and blow it out.
