The Trump Economy: Taking Stock

The global economy as we know it is changing before our eyes. The Trump administration has implemented shifts in economic policy—retreating from multilateral trade negotiations, deploying tariffs, and passing a huge tax reform bill—that have already made their mark on America’s economy and Americans’ daily lives. The great debate now is around these policies’ long-term impact. Could these policies could spur growth and address the concerns of those left behind by globalization and technology for decades to come? Or will they further weaken not only Americans’ financial mobility, but also America’s role as economic superpower on the world stage?
