Good point. It is? Economic growth is about what is was five years ago under Obama. Real wages have grown about 1% in the last two years. If real wages aren't going up very much, there's a limit to how fast the economy can grow based on consumer spending. The other ways it can grow are business spending, government spending, and exports. Business has taken the Trump tax cuts and done stock buybacks and distributed dividends. Why? Because we don't have growing consumer spending or very good prospects for our exports. So much for business spending. Government spending? Trump wants to cut it. Not a bad thing unless the spending is going to useful infrastructure (not pork, bridges to nowhere, etc.). The bottom line here is that we have to change some economic basics if we're going to get sustained faster growth. You may think the economy is "good," but the truth is Trump bought a little extra growth with poorly targeted tax cuts and a doubling of the deficit to $1t. What's with Trump? Canada is our largest export market, yet Trump has been badmouthing them with lies about them taking advantage of us. He says they have a trade surplus with us, but the truth is we have a goods and services surplus with them. Trump deliberately ignores we sell them a lot of services. Overall, they sell us a lot of raw materials and we sell them manufactured goods and services. What's not to like about that? Canada is diversifying their trade--they signed a free trade deal with the EU, the TPP, and are working on a deal with South America. They don't trust us. They tell us we can have a free lunch. What else is news? A nice theory that doesn't seem to have worked in practice. Trump seems more determined to increase his wealth than I am to increase mine. Maybe you should elect me--I'll work for $1/year, put all of my assets in a blind trust, and continue not drawing Social Security or using Medicare. I care about his recent tax returns. Is he using the Presidency to make money? Would you bet have your assets that he isn't?
