Home / S. Sumner: Money Illusion / Reading Trump’s mind

Reading Trump’s mind

Summary:
Here’s me, before the recent Georgia election: Does Trump even want the GOP to hold the Senate? Or is Trump like some un-named central European dictator who doesn’t care if his own country is destroyed once it becomes clear that his hairhare-brained scheme for world domination didn’t work? And today we see that: “The president was telling people today that he was happy Loeffler and Perdue lost, according to a person familiar with the conversations,” she tweeted.“He said they didn’t defend him enough,” she added. Not enough? Trump is the best friend the Democrats ever had. But then perhaps he’s just a mole; he did support Bill Clinton, didn’t he? 🙂 PS. Like Trump, I’m glad they lost. Tags:

Scott B. Sumner is Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, the Director of the Program on Monetary Policy at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and an economist who teaches at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts. His economics blog, The Money Illusion, popularized the idea of nominal GDP targeting, which says that the Fed should target nominal GDP—i.e., real GDP growth plus the rate of inflation—to better "induce the correct level of business investment".
