    Heh. You know, I think you should really change your screen name to Alfred E. Neumann!

    Tell you that the P.E ratio on the S&P 500 is at the same highly elevated level it was at in 1929, right before the Great Crash, and you say, "What, me worry?"

    Tell you that our corporations have more debt on their books than at any point in history, and you say, "What, me worry?"

    Tell you that the CBO says Trump's tax cuts are pushing America towards another major financial crisis, and you say, "What, me worry?"

    Tell you that the trade deficit and the budget deficit are both soaring, and you say, "What, me worry?"

    I wonder if you even have the same silly shit-eating grin that Alfred E. Neumann always had on the cover of Mad magazine.


    It WAS a funny magazine, although a little more juvenile than the National Lampoon. But, gosh, it's not gonna be so funny when this massive economic bubble that we're blowing up here bursts.

    The $6.3 trillion debt binge: American companies have never owed this much

    Government debt is ballooning. And corporations have never been so deeply in hock. I guess America really did learn nothing from the massive bubble of the 2000's. And that was ONLY ten years ago. Short attention span, America. In fact, you've probably forgotten what this post was all about, already.

    It was about the Superbowl, right?
    More fake news from the left. Perfect!

    Corporate America Has Amassed a Record Amount of Cash

    Corporate America has never been in better shape to put its cash hoard to use on everything from investment to acquisitions, share buybacks and dividends. Or just hold on to it.

    Non-financial companies’ liquid assets, which include foreign deposits, currency as well as money-market and mutual fund shares, reached a record of almost $2.3 trillion in the second quarter, according to Federal Reserve data released Thursday. That’s up nearly 60 percent since the recession ended in mid-2009.

    I wasn't able to find anything that indicated a corporate or domestic debt bubble, actually it looks like the opposite.

    Several of your links only show data through the end of 2016. We will obviously need to find more recent data for those variables. The last variable obviously does not correlate at all well with recessions, so would have little predictive power. I may have more to say later.
