Fanciful but worthwhile article from Reuters ...

“in the 2020s it seems inevitable that a world of helicopter money awaits,” Deutsche Bank predicts.

Universal basic income?  I think it's more likely people will be forced to work on precarious contracts for very low wages.  Especially now that Britain will become 'Singapore on steroids' and have a great bonfire of 'red tape' such as human rights, environmental protections and rights for workers (which do nothing but stop companies being efficient and profitable - bah!  Humbug!)

My prediction for DOW the year 2020 (for what its worth) 😎

I think we will see some profit taking in January (maybe 5% or so down to 27 000 ish?)

Then straight up to 30 000 in a couple of months (spring time?)

Then its time to start worry about the US election and take profit with VIX rising

If Trump wins we could get a relief rally and if some democrat wins then its time to prepare for a bearmarket in stocks

He also blasted what he views as her anti-capitalist positions, including a proposed wealth tax.

“I don’t need Elizabeth Warren telling me that I’m a deadbeat and that billionaires are deadbeats. "

This will help to remind people of the highly anti-democratic nature of the international financial system, and that the international financier can manufacture a crisis as quickly in America or Britain as he can in Venezuela.  Will be interesting to see how the 99.99% react when the 0.01% throw a temper tantrum when asked to pay a little bit more tax on their multi-billion fortunes.
