Economic State of the Union: What is likely to happen if X (Trump/Clinton) wins?

Featured Speaker: Dr. Harvey Rosenblum
Professor of Business and Financial Economics in the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University, and retired EVP and Director of Research for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

During the exhausting, noisy, and lengthy 2016 Presidential campaign, both parties authored drastically different tax plans, priorities and budgets. Both platforms would leave us further in debt with no effective plan to reduce that debt long-term or significantly diminish spending. Either platform will almost certainly leave Washington and Congress in future deadlocks regarding spending priorities and sources of revenue. Some analysts have suggested that Trump’s plan could trigger a trade war with China that would rearrange the global economy, while others have called his economic plans “disastrous.” Clinton has been accused of having little interest in addressing the growth in federal debt, and many expect she would seek to broaden entitlements. On November 8, we will elect a new President. The markets will react almost immediately, perhaps precipitously and erratically, and economists and investors will be anxious about the financial direction of the nation. This will be compounded by the anticipation that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in December. What can we expect to happen? Dr. Harvey Rosenblum is articulate, brilliant, highly experienced, and entertaining as well. AND he is able to explain the economy in understandable, relatable terms.
