Trump's Economic Policies: An Assessment, Part II

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Saturday, November 2, 2019

In Part I, I covered the “very good indeed” parts of President Donald Trump’s economic policies: the 2017 tax cut and the deregulation and slowing of new regulation. Here I turn to the “horrid:” his attacks on free trade, his hostility to immigration, and his failure to do anything to rein in federal spending. As in Part I, I wear two hats in judging him: (1) as a believer in economic freedom and (2) as an economist who cares about people’s economic wellbeing.

Our Strength And Our Prosperity Depend On Our Diversity: Reality Or Ideology?

by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Economic growth is driven by increases in productivity and labor.  However, not all labor is the same.  Some is low-skilled, low-valued-added, while other labor is high-skilled, high-value-added.  It makes a big difference in the rate of growth if the increase in labor is low-skilled or high-skilled.

The Rural-Urban Divide With Jonathan Rodden

interview with Jonathan Roddenvia Rural Matters
Monday, August 26, 2019

Hoover Institution fellow Jonathan Rodden says geography matters in the United States because we’re divided into electoral districts, which can be a good thing but has a downside in being a major determinant in who wins an election. Rodden notes that the rural vote will be critical in the 2020 election, but economics will not be the only determinant as social issues, such as abortion, gun rights, race, and immigration, will also play a part.
