    How does a slowdown (recessions) in EU, Japan and China affect the US markets and the US economy? We say in Canada that when the US catches a cold we have pneumonia. Is it possible that if the rest of the world gets a cold that the US gets it by contagion, at least that it starts things like layoffs in multinational US corporations and leads the US in a full recession? That is my worry.

    I believe you vastly underestimate the willingness of the Central Bankers to outlaw the business cycle. If Central Bankers can implement negative interest rates at all, then they have as much room to cut as they want. If Japan can nationalize the national debt, so can Europe and the United States. If the bond pits refuse the increased supply, the Central Banks can bypass them by implementing Modern Monetary Theory and just print money itself as a debt instrument and unilaterally issue bonds it then buys with the money created. It can use the extra money to buy index funds and ETFs, and the interest and dividends it earns goes to the Treasury. The next generation of macroeconomists will thumb their noses at how unnecessarily tight the modern regimes have been, and praise Fed Chairman Jim Cramer.
