Trump tweet:

Quote:
U.S. Markets are up as much as 21% since the announcement of Tariffs on 3/1/2018 - and the U.S. is taking in massive amounts of money (and giving some to our farmers, who have been targeted by China)!

The man is obviously a free-market capitalist who's well schooled in libertarian thought...truth be told, I'm still shocked he took the GOP and their base along for a market manipulation tour that will last at least four years. The openness with which they all adopted protectionist, debt based policies? That would have taken a generation or two in the tribal system we have. Instead, a hostile takeover of the board was all that was needed.  Grin

Just because Trump has a social disease (sociopath) doesn't make him a socialist.

He seems to have more in common with traditional left and right sentiments than classical liberal or libertarian.

The further you go left and right, the more anti-trade, anti-immigrant sentiment you find.

He's using subsidies to alleviate a problem he caused but no he's not a communist.

Calling Trump a communist is an insult to Communism.

Ah I see, so as long as it's used to solve a problem caused by someone, it's ok to be communist.

Gotcha!

Oh, that's interesting.  I can't wait to see what those differences are in future posts.

In times of war, policies might be adopted, such as rationing or economic relief, that are not intended to continue after the war is over and do not indicate anything about general economic policy.
