Macro US Election

The reason is a failing financial and respectively political system in the USA. I wonder why people always say the EU is worse than the US. They are organized in such a similar way politically and financially. I would even say that the USA is in a more difficult position even for the near future. Failing economy (do not buy what the news say. US economy is in a dark place), financial problems, elections that will destabilise the country, ill foreign policy just to mention few of the reasons. Some will say the USA can print their way out but the FED admitted that this does not work. Of course it doesn't. Who will take more debt when the debt is unsustainable already? So what are the options now for a positive outcome?
