Boom times are a short burst of good times during which you save for the bad. It isn't stability. It is a stroke of luck. But goys end up over-extending selves and then bitching about congress, immigrants, elite, etc. when they lose their homes.

1998 was a boom because of a brand new technology - the internet, which legitimately increased wealth across the board. Bodies were needed to take advantage of it, and they were willing to train new tech workers.

2006 was worse because it was essentially a paper boom that was built on BS (mortgages that were never, ever getting paid back and resulting real estate boom that made everyone that owned a house seem wealthier than they actually were. These people spent accordingly and then found themselves fucked when the bubble popped).

This boom is shit for several reasons. The first is that a bunch of people were seriously fucked from ITE and the "boom" involves a lot of these people simply getting back on their feet. It isn't the same as say, 1998 when people that were already doing ok started doing much better. People today also have more debt but despite that are further behind on various lifestage goals like homeownership. Another shitty feature of this "boom" is that much of it is driven by technologies like automation that are great for stats like productivity and corp profits but are terrible for actual employees. Unlike the mid-90s, it is something that eliminates more jobs than it creates.

because Trump is ramping up H-1B's and you'll be training your replacement in 6 months, then fired.

This has to be taken in light of this: https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2017-h1b-tech/

I get his idea that H1Bs should be really hard to get but if you can get one then you must be really valuable, so you should get a path to citizenship. That is consistent with his view that citizenship should be merit-based.

i hope so. Ann Coulter is betting that Trump ends up giving away so much to Dems in exhange for wall funding, that the Wall is not even worth it.

Here's the issue. You have a Republican party that controlled both the house and the senate and couldn't get it done. He can't push this issue alone, yet that is the position he is in.

because the "boom time" is GC flame. it's a boom time if you're a GC elite with tons of real estate and stocks. normies across the country are actuall dying of drug ODs, working BS "service sector" jobs because there's no industry left in america, and beyond high finance/silicon valley the only 'good' we produce now are US dollars (the reserve currency of the world). as soon as the dollar gets dropped as the world's reserve currency we'll be exposed as a hollow fraud of a country with no real economy outside of SF/NYC. HTH.

Boom is relative though. It is definitely better than it was 3-4 years ago.

I don't know. Those jobs suck. But my personal anecdotal experience suggests people are spending. Tried to book a vacation. Prices have gone up. But that's not even the problem. Very difficult to get seats/rooms etc. Shit's all booked up. Recruiter calls all the time. Making the most money I ever have (still lol compared to board bigwigs like nutella, cslg etc).
