    This will probably be the most important story of 2018 also. Happy New Year.

    Thank you President Trump!

    What the hell is this?? Is that supposed to be an excuse for an OP? No real commentary? No documentation? Just an oversimplified dumbed down statement . A what the hell does T-Rump have to do with it? You can't be serious with the hog wash! This sort of OP just drags down the quality and integrity of the USMB . The mods should take note Now here are some facts:

    Giving any credit to Trump, Obama or any other politician is ridiculous. From what I've read the global "extreme" poverty rate in 1990 was 35%. In 2015 it was under 13%. Every economist I've heard speak to this points to one fact, the Chinese have adopted more market based reforms, they entered the world of capitalism.
