The U.S. economy just had its worst quarter in history. To soften the effects of its Universal Lockdown, the government is handing out checks all round…

But it’s far from plain sailing, as the deficit climbs to $4 trillion and beyond.

The Federal Reserve enables this spend fest by printing money – “whatever it takes” to right the ship.

Balanced budgets are a thing of the past. The Trump administration will have a $4 trillion deficit this year, at least… It’s rough seas ahead. But both Donald Trump and Joe Biden seem determined to steer the ship into the eye of the storm. Is it any wonder people are losing faith in the whole system?
