Yosef Bonaparte (Colorado): U.S. Presidents and Stock Market Performance: The Good, the Bad and the Useless. Trump is tying his presidency to the stock market — he might come to regret that. Trump just took credit for the stock market again — what happens if the economy turns on him? There’s an easy way to show the stock market rally has little to do with Trump. The importance of historical perspective in understanding recent good economic news. Can the economy keep calm and carry on? The markets are up, unemployment is down — how much credit should Trump get? Trump era is the greatest threat to the U.S. economy, Americans say. Will the economy save Trump and his party?

Trump’s economy is doing (slightly) worse than Obama’s. The Trump economy is a gilded mediocrity (and more). The Dollar General CEO just accidentally made clear how screwed up the economy is. The US economy is not yet back to its potential. Why the Trump economic boom will never come: Yes, the markets are looking good (for now) — but subsidized deal-making and tax cuts for the rich are the surest sign of a bubble. We’re still not ready for the next banking crisis: One chart says everything about how well the financial system will cope. The U.S. isn’t prepared for the next recession: When it comes — and it will, eventually — it’ll be worse than necessary.

The Great Recession never ended. The Great Recession is still with us: The downturn left the country poorer and more unequal than it would have been otherwise. Worse than the 1930s: America’s Great Recession and not so great recovery. A decade later, it looks like the Great Recession may be worse than the Great Depression.
