Hamish McRae – What would the US economy really look like under President Donald Trump?

Could President Donald Trump deliver on his promises? The problem – and this applies to all presidential candidates – is that the economic levers that a president can pull are much weaker than in other western democracies. There are two reasons for this. First, the system is designed that way, with its checks and balances. As far as the budget …

As I reported last month, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton draws broad financial support from the food and agriculture industries, including the fast-growing organic-foods sector.

PAUL STREET – The Ruling Class’s Hatred of Trump is Different Than Yours

Much, maybe most, of the nation’s corporate, financial, and imperial establishment loathes Donald Trump.
