Biggest Stories For 2017?

I started a thread in Farm Business on big ag stories of 2017, but it's been an interesting year all around.  What is on your list of big stories in 2017, not necessarily farm related?  I'll start with a couple.  Probably all the stories are right - it's not an idea of yours are good and mine aren't.  What did you find interesting?

 

North Korean missiles

Sex scandals affect business and politics

Tax bill

Record high Dow, record low unemployment, record low unemployment for Blacks, record existing home sales up like 5.6% last month blowing all expectations out the window.  +3% GDP growth when did we last have that during Reagan?  My Son landed a job a year before he graduates +6 figures right out of school!   Business is good!
