Americans screaming that the election process was rigged, citing polls showing Hillary with a commanding lead only weeks to days ahead of the election, feel vindicated by the victory. The push to focus on reporting rather than creating news begins today, because it's clear Americans are no longer listening. The transition will not be easy.
While smart money should have been expecting a stock market (never chase strength against the message of the market) and dollar decline on a Trump victory, they should also expect these trend to be short-term. Long-term trends, driven by flight of capital from Europe and Asia and NOT politicians or central planners, will resume faster than people expect.
Americans that believe the status quo ended with the election of Trump are about to learn another hard lesson of change. Meaningful change is rarely comes from the voting booth. Economic, political, and social shifts or meaningful changes usually happen only after major crisis or panic. A big one is coming!
A Trump victory was easy. Americans will soon learn that the price of real change comes with unintended consequences for those unprepared. Few are prepared.
