Every other week, we release 5 Minutes for Business, a publication written by Hendrik Brakel, our Senior Director of Economic, Financial and Tax Policy. As we anxiously await the U.S. presidential elections on November 8, Hendrik challenges Trump’s claims that the U.S. economy is “terrible,” “very bad,” and “a complete disaster.” The consensus explanation for Mr. Trump’s support is that the working class is struggling desperately in a weak economy, putting them in a position to vote for anything that will help to shake up the system. In contrast to Trump’s claims, the U.S. economy is in a much better position than he is choosing to acknowledge.

Read 5 Minutes for Business to learn more about the state of the U.S. economy and to find out what policymakers and business leaders can do if the U.S.’s improving economic circumstances don’t calm this Trump fever.

For more information, please contact Hendrik Brakel.
