Another trillion dollars for the American economy

 Yesterday, the leading US stock indexes fell slightly, but in general they continue to be near their absolute highs and can update them any time. All three leading indexes, the S&P 500, Dow Jones, and NASDAQ Composite, maintain upward trends. We have already mentioned earlier why this is happening. First, the Fed continues to buy bonds and mortgage-backed securities from the open market, saturating it with liquidity. And all the cash immediately flows into the most profitable stocks that can provide profit to their investors in the future. Moreover, the profit is not even a dividend, but a profit due to a constant increase in value. The dividends of almost all American companies are already below the current inflation. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to make a profit from dividend payments in the near future. However, since investors do not have much choice, and stocks are the most common investment tool, it is the stock market that capital continues to flow.


At the same time, the US Senate agreed on a new package of assistance to the US economy. Previously, it appeared under the name "infrastructure package". It can be recalled that Joe Biden offered two stimulus packages for the American economy, each of about $2 trillion. As you can see, the final version of the first package is half as small. However, we have not yet seen the second package, which is the "social" one. The infrastructure package will be aimed at investing in roads, bridges, ports, the internet, and other facilities over the next 5-8 years. It is noteworthy that the source of the formation of this package is planned to be tax revenues, but not the attraction of loans. In other words, the US government will not climb into even greater debts to finance this $1 trillion package. Of course, we cannot judge where this money will come from. In America, they really like to live on credit, and the size of the public debt in the United States already exceeds the volume of GDP. Simply put, the States owe more money than their economy is worth. In fairness, it should be noted that about half of the debts are debts to themselves. Simply put, the American government owes American investors, various American funds, the Fed, and so on. For example, the United States owes China or Japan only $1 trillion, which is not so much. Thus, a default is unlikely to threaten Washington. Moreover, the money is spent on improving infrastructure, which will attract new investors to America even more in the future. The Fed can also print money in almost any volume without fear of hyperinflation, since the dollar remains the world's number one currency. One way or another, the US economy continues to accelerate and will continue to do this for many years to come.
