The trade disputes and pressure on multilateralism will end in an economic recession in 2020. Trump wants to get rid of Fed Chairman Powell, a rate cut should secure another year of corporate wealth and high stock prices to assure his re-election next year. Gaming the national economy ... until the boomerang hits you in the back of the head.

Fed cuts rates for first time since 2008
"The Fed's actions Wednesday follow through on market expectations for a 25 basis point cut. Heading into the meeting, federal funds futures markets were pricing in a 79.1% chance of a 25 basis point move, with a 20.1% chance that the Fed would cut by 50 basis points."

DOW 30 -333. Wait for the bounce in 3, 2, 1 ...

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
