This is what comes before a crash.

Laws and Regulations, unnecessary ones by previous administration. Don't believe me? Watch CNBC.

So we've had fairly minimal increases, and for that we've added risk of another crash, environmental destruction, conflict with other countries...?!

.... been a heck a lot of manufacturing and refining capacity added along the gulf coast these last 4 years.

I think it's more of a factor of the overall global economy recovering from 2007/2008. Although, I would imagine businesses would be positively impacted if/when meaningful business friendly legislation occurs. I think the most friendly would include employers getting out of healthcare.

What has been remove is instability in regulations where businesses could not make multi-billion dollar plans for the future without fear of new regulations popping up without regard to their effect on business costs.

Any business owner banking on lax, Trump-like regulatory policies enduring into the future will deserve the fate that awaits him.

True. Basically he's making it easier to have bad ethics, and easier to fall into risky practices.

Sorry, I'm not a television person. I don't doubt that many regulations promulgated by the previous administration - and other administrations - were ill-conceived and counterproductive. But what are specific examples of repeal of regulations under the present administration, which have been documented as having salubrious economic impact?

Once again: please give specific examples. What's an example of an "instability in regulation" that was caustic and debilitating a year ago, but which is no longer?

Banking industry is one of them. But of course if you watch CNBC, guest after guest came on the show mentioned this. Some of them are CEOs of large companies, unlike some yahoo from the internet.

Commercial lending is down since January so will be interesting to see. I'm dubious regulation was holding back any lending what so ever.

Loans and leases have been on a crazy rise and likely the last breath of our current expansion. I expect in a few years or so we'll be hearing about auto makers in trouble and demand drop for housing.
