A few more nights of sleep and the economic expansion in the US will be the longest expansion ever in the history of the United States. This expansion means, among other things, that a period of lower growth, if not a recession, could only be a matter of time. The natural behaviour of a healthy economy is one of ascending and descending phases, not of everlasting growth. Of course, the American economy has received a massive overdose of all sorts of monetary drugs, such as quantitative easing (QE), long-term 0 percent interest and still receives little benefit, which makes it hard to call it an average economy. This may mean that it takes longer for normal behaviour to be spotted, but sooner or later, this will be the case. Anyone who kicks a ball up in the air will temporarily win from gravity but can’t claim that he has beaten gravity forever.
