The senator agreed to meet last summer and listened as they promised funding and presented a plan to get his name on the ballot in all 50 states. Meanwhile, parts of the Democratic field were doing the same, with most candidates focused on building Sanders-style small-dollar, email-driven fund-raising machines. None of us!

But no bank has set up any meet-and-greets like the ones then-Senator Obama lit up in Not everyone is playing the same game. For them, there was Beto. Investment banker and former ambassador to the U. Louis Susman, meanwhile, also jumped onboard, making calls across Wall Street to construct a fund-raising operation for him. You had a lot of senior people get involved for Obama.
In calls with potential supporters, he asked for advice, and hours before making his campaign official, he rang Robert Wolf, the former UBS chair. Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville addressed the group over dinner and asked who among them had committed to a presidential candidate. Just four hands went up. The topic was unavoidable: In recent weeks, a new name had entered the fold.
Now, as the donors spoke, more news trickled out. A growing array of influential bundlers in the finance world had made their choice to support the new entrant, even though many had planned to stay neutral far longer. Hedge-fund manager Orin Kramer, for one, was onboard after meeting the candidate in person a few weeks earlier.

Sometimes there are warning signs, such as asset-market bubbles developing, inflation picking up, the Fed raising interest rates, and trade deficits soaring.

The truth is that no one can be certain of what is going to happen. What we do know for sure is that, the longer Donald Trump persists in his trade war, the greater the chances are of an outright slump developing.
