So, tax cut did not stimulate the economy, government spending ( defense spending 1.7%) did. So, are we looking at bull trap? My suggestion to japan is, increase defense spending by 1000%, your economy will be alright. lol. Deficit is good for economy. Importing from China is good for economy that will reduce inflation. So, feds can reduce interest rate. Only thing left was oil price crises, so conquer Iraq, well it is done. Great we all be happy ever after.
