Well, Jess,* I have two degrees in business, two degrees in science, and two degrees from which I graduated summa cum laude, one of which is my own MBA, so with all due respect, I’ll see your MBA, raise you two science degrees and two SCLs, and recommend you spend more time studying economics.
I see Ivanka Trump graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in economics in 2004. Do you she that might have some input into President Trump’s tax plan? I’ll bet she did. I’m also willing to bet that both of them knew enough not to solely trust their education and experience, but instead solicited input from dozens of top experts in a variety of fields.
Perhaps it was on the advice of the Reagan-era policies of Milton Friedman, who held a PhD in Economics from Columbia University, and was a Fulbright Visiting Fellow at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, whose “tax cuts increase the economy” advice to President Reagan absolutely resulted in both tax cuts as well as the resulting strong economy throughout the 1980s and well into the 1990s.
That may not mean much to you, but this and tons of repeating history very strongly confirm that President Trump’s tax cuts are precisely the right move. Indeed, the economic jumped yet again after the bill passed, a very strong indication it’s the right thing for our economy.
