  1. The economic implications of Trump’s trade & tax policies
    Sudden changes in trade and tax policies, the likes of those considered by the Trump administration, could be very disruptive to macroeconomic equilibrium, especially if they result in a sudden burst of inflation and in rapid interest rate hikes. Indeed, raising taxes on imports, repatriating large corporate profits parked overseas and increasing the fiscal deficit, when the economy is running at close to full capacity, can result in both demand-led and supply-led inflation.

  9. One year later: The political cancer metastasizes
    Exactly one day short of one year after the election of Donald Trump, the fog finally seemed to lift and the skies brightened.
