    David Stockman: America Now Lives Under A ‘Perverted Regime’

    One foisted on the nation by its bipartisan ruling elites

    David Stockman, former director of the OMB under President Reagan, former US Representative, and veteran financier is an insider's insider. Few people understand the ways in which both Washington DC and Wall Street work and intersect better than he does.

    In his upcoming book, Trumped! A Nation on the Brink of Ruin…And How to Bring it Back, Stockman lays out how we have devolved from a free market economy into a managed one that operates for the benefit of a privileged few. And when trouble arises, these few are bailed out at the expense of the public good.

    Stockman brings us his report of what 30 years of politics, degenerative crony capitalism and “bubble finance” have finally wrought. The upheaval and crossroads represented by Donald Trump’s candidacy spell economic disaster or resurgence, depending on the steps America chooses to take from here.

    Those familiar with my writing know I put the word “markets” in quotes because we no longer have a financial system where legitimate price discovery is a regular — or even recognizable — feature.

    It's destined to fail. What more can be said about such a flawed system?

    Well, a lot as it turns out. 

    And failure to pay attention at this stage of economic and ecological history will prove to be exceptionally painful.

    The recent stock market and financial turbulence is going to get worse — possibly a lot worse. This will be true even in the 'core' countries (US, Europe, Japan), while peripheral countries are suffering unusual levels of turmoil.

    It’s nothing personal. This is simply how things were always destined to end.

    Similarly, there seem to be a bunch of new economic rules that we have to adjust our thinking around.
