Trump's Economy: Boom or Bust?
May 18, 2017Chicago, Illinois
Is the US economy headed for a boom or bust under the Trump administration? Now almost 90 days into his presidency, Donald Trump promised healthcare reform, big tax cuts, immigration restrictions, and a protectionist approach to creating new domestic jobs. The equities markets have shown strong gains since the election, but investors are nervous: Congress is a mess, and the world seems more and more chaotic. The Fed appears set on raising interest rates and bringing an end to its asset-buying spree, which may cause heartburn for debt-laden businesses and individuals.
What does it mean for the US economy in the new Trump era? We invite you to join us for a seminar and panel discussion to make sense of it all. Speakers include Dr. Bob Murphy from Texas Tech University, Dr. Yuri Maltsev from Carthage College, and Jeff Deist from the Mises Institute.
