A bill in the Nebraska state legislature aims to boost the state’s maximum highway speed limit from 75 to 80 mph. Seven U.S. states currently allow speeds of 80 mph or more.

Social mood affects the government’s approach to speed limits. In the bear market year of 1973, Congress imposed a 55 mph national speed limit. Two decades later, in the middle of a strong bull market, the 55 mph limit went up in smoke. Now, with stocks near all-time highs, society is feeling the need for even more speed.

What should you expect to see when mood becomes more negative? Slower speeds and fewer accidents for starters.
