The skinny on Trumponomics

“President Donald Trump does not trust economists. So he is demoting the Council of Economic Advisors, booting out of the Cabinet the Council’s chairperson. If this were only because economists as economists cannot do what he has been able to do — make a big success in business and trade –— we could give him something like a pass. … But all this may be irrelevant. Trump’s problem seems to be that he cannot find enough reputable economists to jump on board his protectionist bandwagon.” (02/13/17)
