I don't really give much weight to the POTUS affecting the economy much; though I suppose it affects markets as much as any single person could. That said, I don't think the markets will do as well as they could once they get Bern'ed. I'll probably save my expensive projects for the next downturn when skilled laborers are hungry for work.

It's unclear to me if used vehicles get cheaper in a down economy because less new ones get purchased. Seems the supply of used tightens, but everyone needs a vehicle. Perhaps used prices go up then.
