John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Goldman Sachs Says The Markets Point To Trump Advantage In 2020

Recommended Posts

By Whitney Tipton -

Donald Trump success


President Trump has the advantage for 2020 if the economy stays on track, according to Goldman Sachs economists.

Goldman analysts Alec Phillips and Blake Taylor wrote that Trump has advantages over the Democrats, in a report released Saturday and covered by Bloomberg.

“The advantage of first term incumbency and the relatively strong economic performance ahead of the presidential election suggest that President Trump is more likely to win a second term than the eventual Democratic candidate is to defeat him,” analysts wrote.

Goldman’s economic forecast predicts 2.5 percent growth for the U.S. economy this year, and 2.3 percent for next. According to the investment bank, that pace bodes well for incumbent Trump, since they predict this will reduce unemployment to 3.3 percent.

“Prediction markets” are not as optimistic about Trump’s victory. “While we believe the majority of market participants expect President Trump to win a second term, we note that prediction markets point in the opposite direction and imply that the Democratic candidate has a 56% probability of winning and the Republican candidate has a 44% chance,” the report said, according to Yahoo Finance.

Analysts felt that market-based indicators like equity or oil prices were not as reliable as employment and income variables when predicting election results, the Bloomberg article also noted.

In early November 2016, the same Goldman analyst Phillips predicted that the race was tightening, but that Hillary would likely secure the presidency. “Clinton is still seen as twice as likely to win the White House next week as Mr Trump, ” he said in an article for Australian Financial Review.
