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.

Raise The Limit For Deposit Insurance

quoting Raghuram Rajanvia Economic Times (India)
Tuesday, October 29, 2019

India should double the limit for bank deposits that are insured, to at least Rs 2 lakh. That would still be short of a rule of thumb, of the ceiling being double the per-capita GDP. The other rule of thumb, as former SBI economist MR Das explained on this page on Tuesday, is that the limit should cover 80% of depositors and at least 20% of the deposits. This is less relevant for India. The Rs 1 lakh limit, estimates Das, cover 92% of depositors, thanks to the huge increase in the number of small account holders, following financial inclusion drives.

Elizabeth Warren’s Flawed Approach To Trade

by Richard A. Epsteinvia Las Vegas Review Journal
Saturday, October 26, 2019

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is at it again. Her ill-conceived New Approach To Trade proclaims boldly as follows: As president, I won’t hand America’s leverage to big corporations to use for their own narrow purposes — I’ll use it to create and defend good American jobs, raise wages and farm income, combat climate change, lower drug prices and raise living standards worldwide. We will engage in international trade — but on our terms and only when it benefits American families.
