It turned out that the next decade had just about no real growth once the collapse was completed by mid 2009.
I'm not sure how this relates to my post, but the post was coherent, used paragraphs to improve readability, and is about the economy which is at least related to a discussion on the Trump presidency. I gave it a thumbs up for those points alone.
Not really about the Trump presidency though.

Seems to me if its clear that certain things that require ancient dates couldn't possibly be true, we are on our way to throwing out all those ancient dates on the basis of the actual evidence. -- Faith
Some of us are worried about just how much damage he will do in his last couple of weeks as president, to make it easier for the NY Times and Washington post to try to destroy Trump's presidency. -- marc9000
Did you guys know that Trump personally profited from Raytheonís jump in stock directly after his Syrian attack?
While the world is dealing with both the implications and the fall-out from President Donald Trumpís missile attack on a Syrian airfield on Thursday, the manufacturer of the Tomahawk missile used in the attack is seeing their stock surge which is good news for their investors ó including the president.
As noted by the Palmer Report, Trump owns stock in Raytheon, which was reported by Business Insider in 2015.
There are plenty of lobby groups that are all about promoting change which can harm society
True and they claim that they are bucking the trend and often actually claim the role of a young boy attempting to slay the giant when they are infact the Goliath himself. The sad reality is that most political debate is just alot of lame Democrat verses Republican talking points. Actual discussion of real policy that genuinely helps 99% of us, while HONESTLY only cutting the throats of greedy special interests rarely gets discussed. Instead we get alot of discussion about divisive issues that come with alot of severe side effects. Those policies need to be discussed too (though the very reason that there is the discussion in the first place is usually a top-down propaganda campaign by powerful and/or partisan special interests which falsely claim the role of the little David "bravely" fighting the giant on "behalf of the little people" when there isn't an ounce of truth to their loaded and distorted picture ).
quote: "Free and open" in International terms can cause a greater terrorist threat . And in the case of food, it can also mean a health threat.
It can also give us a chance to have worldwide food safety standards that make the overall situation much better overall compared to the present.
I don't quite know what to make of apparent terrorist threats. It would probably be something we don't need to worry so much about but we should have government watchers to monitor the situation.
Islam followers surely come to your mind on terrorism but look at the food issue. I know that kosher food is very safe to eat due to good inspections so a worldwide regime that employs Islamic inspectors to insure halal food standards and top notch safety concerns could have the doubly beneficial effect of high safety standards and disarm extremists from claiming "persecution" (or at least prevent from gaining too much of a following).
Every weekend he spends playing golf on his course in Florida feeds money into the TrumP business and into his pockets. Keeping his wife in Trump tower in NYC so that she doesn't have to be in the same city as him also brings in money.

Has he actually donated his salary ? Or is that another of the things he said he would do without thinking about it ?
Well.. he donated his salary to the Park service but with the other hand proposed slashing spending at the Department of Interior by $1.5 billion, 12 percent of the budget at the Park Service's parent agency.
He's donating his entire salary, that's not very profitable. What ways has he taken in money as president?
We can't know, can we, since he still refuses to make his finances public.
But what we can know is that he holds events at his properties, has NOT set up the blind trust he promised, has not divorced his businesses from family even while bringing family into government; in other words, he has continued to fail to live up to the promises he made as a candidate in ANY area regarding business or finance or wealth generation.
