Abstract

In a speech in Detroit last week, Donald Trump announced his economic policy platform. Brian Klaas writes that Trump’s platform is a bizarre stitching together of economic theories, which aim to appeal to both blue collar workers through protectionism and to the 1% via tax breaks and the further deregulation of Wall Street. He comments that not only are Trump’s proposals in complete conflict with one another in actually promoting economic prosperity, but they would also be a disaster if enacted in terms of lost jobs and growth.
