I'm just playing around. I forget where it was but one poster made a joke like "I love Trump and I hope he Makes America Great Again" with a reference to shoring up his brownie points with the secret police as if the poster was living under an occupation. I thought that was funny. This place doesn't seem like the kind to have meltdowns when regimes change over in any case.

Stocks literally went up t
Friday because of a weak jobs report because it might mean the Fed will cut rates again. Lollllll

Trade is slowing, inventories are piling up and the PMI is starting to not look too good, but if credit doesn't dry up (i.e. rates are lowered) they'll keep this thing going for god knows how long

I would simply ask the bank for the money, then have an exciting adventure spanning ninety minutes to two hours where I acquired it by other means.

The new restrictions on travel to Cuba could be a big deal in Cuba. They have been investing heavily in a tourist industry since Obama opened things up a bit. Hotels being opened in partnership with some European banks. Streets lined with "casa particulares" (bed and breakfast type lodging). New restaurants and bars, tour buses bought from China, hiking trails and horseback rides in the mountains and growing regions: it was all filled with tourists spending their Cuban Convertible Pesos helping fill the public coffers and supplementing Cuban salaries. According to the Cuban statistics and information agency, Americans were the second largest group of tourists, behind Canada.

I doubt any other countries will follow suit and add restrictions since they don't need to court Miami Cubans for their elections, but losing the second largest source of tourists during a pivot toward tourism will hurt regardless.
