When the bank lends you money, the loan officer considers the assets against which you are borrowing. Well, what are the assets of the federal government?

Land: The US Government owns 640 million acres of land. That’s 28% of the nation’s total surface and includes 47% of all the land in the west. What’s it all worth? A lot.

Commodities: It is estimated that the US sits atop $119 trillion in oil, $22 trillion in coal, and more than $8 trillion in natural gas.

Military equipment: What are the P‐8A Poseidon and F‐35 Lightning aircraft, the CVN‐78 aircraft carriers, the Arleigh Burke DDG 51 destroyer warships, and the Trident II submarine‐launched ballistic missiles all worth? All US military equipment is estimated at 10 trillion.

Present value of future taxes: The average nominal growth rate since 1980 has been 5.5% annually. If the economy grows at a rate of only 4% for the next 50 years, the economy will grow to be $131 trillion. The US, on average, collects tax revenue equal to 17% of gross domestic product. In this scenario, by 2066, the country will be collecting $22 trillion per year in tax revenue.

In short, the assets and taxing power of the US Government dwarf its liabilities, which aren’t even close to threatening the country’s solvency.

We are often told that our politics have never been so dysfunctional and the political discourse has never been filled with such vitriol. Is this true?

On July 11, 1804, a sitting (sitting!) vice president, Aaron Burr, shot and killed a former Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Today, political attack ads can get pretty intense, but none have ended with any duels on the White House lawn.

Four years earlier, President John Adams and Vice President Thomas Jefferson—the two highest elected officials in the land and founding fathers of the country—squared off in a race for the White House; old‐style civility did not prevail.

Though not all car thefts and break-ins can be prevented, there are precautions you can take to reduce the risk!

These may seem like common sense actions, but when traveling around familiar areas, drivers are much more likely to have their guard down, giving thieves the perfect opportunity.

But isn’t a Republican president better for the market than a president from the Democratic party? Not necessarily. In our view, there are far more important factors impacting both the economy and the stock market than which political party happens to occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Investors considering waiting until the man or woman from their preferred political party occupies the White House should recognize how that would have worked out in the past:

- A $10,000 investment held in the Dow Jones Industrial Average from 1896 to 2018 would now be worth over $6 million.

- Incorporating a strategy where you own stocks whenever your party is in the White House and sell whenever the other party is in the White House would be worth roughly$5 million less!

But wouldn’t we all be better off if the political parties were more cooperative and compromising and could get more accomplished? Again, not necessarily. Historically, the markets have done very well when there has been gridlock.

Contrary to opinion, we believe the American dream is alive and well!

- Of the nation’s millionaires, more than 80% did not inherit 10% or more of their wealth.

- We all know people who were born on third base but act like they hit a triple. But how common is that? Of the Forbes 400 list, “only” 28% inherited wealth in excess of $50M (i.e., woke up on third base or home plate)!

- The remaining nearly 70% were either born “on deck” from a lower‐ to middle‐class background, on first base inheriting less than $1M, or on second base inheriting more than $1M or substantial start‐up capital from a family member. And turning any of those numbers into over $1 billion is still one heck of an achievement!

Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth may help, but it is not the only path to financial success.

Compared with the “golden” days of the 1950s, the average American not only lives longer, but better! People are more highly educated, earn more money and work less for it, operate in safer conditions, are far healthier, and enjoy a much more luxurious lifestyle than their brethren in the 1950s could possibly have imagined.

For us, another great untold story of the last two centuries is the virtual elimination of extreme poverty around the globe. In 1820, virtually 95% of the world lived in extreme poverty, while today, we have almost flipped those numbers. The link between economic freedom (the ability to control and own your intellectual, personal, and business property) and structural/technological innovation (thank you Walmart and Apple, to mention a couple) has often given ordinary people access to lifestyles only dreamed about less than a century ago (when the majority of governments had an iron grip on the economic levers within their societies). This is no small feat when you consider the previous 6,000 years of recorded history barely made a dent in these statistics.
