New York has seen a precipitous slide recently. Hotel occupancy rates are down to under 10%. 90% of restaurants are behind on their rent. Criminal justice enforcement has been all but done away with. Civil unrest could well break out after the election. This is a real test of the City's long-term survival. Michael is speaking out against #KillerCuomo and #comradeDiBlasio and their refusal to enforcement the law and keep order. Time will tell.

Polls tighten, raising odds of civil unrest:

--Trump drawing insanely large crowds in battleground states, dwarfing Biden’s audience;

-- Minority turnout is disappointing compared to probable Trump voters;

-- White House building big fence in anticipation, cops are on alert in big cities.

If stimulus is delayed through the holidays, mass bankruptcy and default in both private and public sectors. Malls, restaurant chains, airlines are all toast. Lockdown impoverished travel, government and so many millions. If they don’t money in a hurry, they are bankrupt. It would have been done if not for the election. It’s in each party’s interest to delay it for a while. Each month that goes by makes it less likely many of these companies will survive. 

JPMorgan came right out and said economy chaos is great for stocks!

Europe is locking down again, will President Biden do the same for the US? 

Is gold the big winner from this election?

Silver would be the big winner from a Blue Wave?
