The American Economy Under President Trump

America’s economy seems strong—the labor market is tight; inflation, wages, and home prices are rising; and households and businesses appear optimistic. During the presidential election campaign, President Trump proposed a wide-ranging set of policy shifts in major areas, including international trade, infrastructure spending, taxation, and regulation. What are the potential risks and benefits of President Trump’s economic plan? And how might the interplay between economics and politics impact the agenda? Join the Council on Global Affairs for a conversation on the current state and future prospects for the US economy.
