There are so few commentators and pundits who understand this. When the crash comes, we should be looking at the man behind the curtain. In fact, why not start now…
Here’s the scoop from Zero Hedge:
A stock market crash is coming, and the Democrats and the mainstream media are going to blame Donald Trump for it even though it won’t be his fault. The truth is that we were headed for a major financial crisis no matter who won the election. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up a staggering 230 percent since the lows of 2009, and no stock market rally in our history has ever reached the 10 year mark without at least a 20 percent downturn. At this point stocks are about as overvalued as they have ever been, and every other time we have seen a bubble of this magnitude a historic stock market crash has always followed. Those that are hoping that this time will somehow be different are simply being delusional.

But perhaps he should not have been so eager to take credit, because what goes up must come down…
Trump is not responsible for the recent market boom, but he is claiming credit for it. This will make it extremely difficult for him to disavow the inevitable crash. But if Trump is not the true culprit, then who is?
This stock market bubble was not primarily created by Barack Obama, Donald Trump or any other politician. Rather, the Federal Reserve was primarily responsible for creating it by pushing interest rates all the way to the floor during the Obama era and by flooding the financial system with hot money during several stages of quantitative easing.
Ron Paul agrees:
“They’ll say, ah, it’s all Trump’s fault. No. It wasn’t. 08 and 09 wasn’t Obama’s fault. It was the fault of the Federal Reserve, it was the fault of the Keynesian economic model, the spending too much, the deficit. So, unfortunately, there’s nothing he can do — Trump can’t do it.”
The establishment does not agree with this assessment. They believe the Fed is here to save the economy, not wreck it. But at the heart of this debate lies unstated presuppositions by both camps…
