PODCAST: Trump and the Economy

On this week’s Axis of Reason podcast, a deep dive into Trump and the economy. The US economy is performing strongly in 2018 as tax cuts fuel strong growth in consumer spending. But, could headwinds from Trump’s trade wars and tighter monetary policy from the Federal Reserve sap the economic momentum. Also, Trump threatened to punish GM for idling plants and laying off workers. But, can he do that? Should he? And are Trump’s trade policies to blame for GM’s decision? Plus, how Trump’s experience in real estate might be distorting his view of how the economy works. Hosted by Taylor Griffin and Tyler Cralle.
