Donald Trump’s Plan for Economic Salvation

by MN Gordon

Economic Prism

Repudiation and Reversal

One of the unspoken joys in life is the rich pleasure that comes with bearing witness to a career politician – a shrew no less – as they fail spectacularly.  Tuesday night served up one of these unique experiences with sumptuous fare.  No doubt, the world is a better place because of it.

Make of it what you will.  Donald Trump’s upset over Hillary Clinton is a repudiation of the entire Washington status quo.  This is something to celebrate, whether you like Trump or not.

There are an abundance of dime a dozen political pundits, all who are way more qualified than (Read More....)

Larded Up and Larded Over

We’ve been waiting for the U.S. economy to reach escape velocity for the last six years.  What we mean is we’ve been waiting for the economy to finally becomes self-stimulating and no longer require monetary or fiscal stimulus to keep it from stalling out.  Unfortunately, this may not be possible the way things are going.
