Biden, the Economy, and a ‘Dark Winter’

    Editors at Issues and Insights deliver a warning about the American economy under a Biden presidential administration.

  • Should President Donald Trump's election challenges fail to keep Joe Biden out of the White House, it's a certainty that bleak days will be ahead. We're staring into the barrel of at least four years of sclerotic economic growth.
  • Six days after the election, Biden, employing the Democratic Party strategy of sowing fear whenever possible, warned that the country is facing a long night.
  • "Before the surge in COVID cases we predicted, many predicted, and the deaths rise that we've seen in December ... we head into a very dark winter ahead," he said.
  • He also lamented the "grim" jobs report, which showed "an economy that is stalling." Employment grew by only 245,000 in November, "well below the 440,000 expected by economists and a sharp drop from the 610,000 reported in October," CNBC reported.
  • "We remain in the midst of one of the worst economic and job crises in modern history," said the man who as vice president oversaw one of the weakest economic recoveries in U.S. history.
  • Apparently it never occurred to Biden and his handlers that government intervention, not the virus, caused 2020's downturn. ...
  • ... A lack of optimism in a Biden economy is not ours alone.
  • "Wall Street investors largely believe a Joe Biden presidency could mean lower stock-market returns," says another CNBC report, this one highlighting the network's survey of "more than 100 chief investment officers and portfolio managers." ...
  • ... Should we care about stock performance? Of course we should. Wall Street and Main Street USA meet at a large and busy intersection. More than half of the country — 55% — owns stock. That's down from the two-thirds that owned stock in 2002. But still more than enough for stock performance to count.
  • The concerns cited by the CIOs and managers should be alarming even to those who aren't shareholders.
