I really hope there's a master plan at work.

Decently strong economic news
223k jobs added; 3.8% unemployment (lowest since 1969); wages up 2.7%. This is all pretty inflationary news (10 year up 0.08 to 2.90% on the news). If only we weren't looking at a trade war...

When W's unemployment numbers were low, everyone said, "Yeah people have jobs, but they are bad jobs." Plus his oil crony buddies were keeping gas costs high on purpose.

When Obama's unemployment numbers were high, and people were getting fucked on insurance, and hours were getting cut to bypass the rules of Obamacare, he was a Golden God and Boyfriend, all in one. Besides, the economy is W's fault.

Now Trump's unemployment numbers are low, and this is doom and gloom, and we're all going to die. THIS IS NOT NORMAL.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

To be fair, the % of the people employed is low/bad (blue line left axis below):

Ben Bernanke joins the 2020 recession crowd

If their right, I expect lots of 2020 sight jokes.

Naturally Bernanke, a member of the global elite, wants a US recession in 2020. He hates Trump.

I'm not hoping for one, but we're due for something. I suspect before 2020 though.
