CNBC is reporting that Deutsche Bank is forecasting that Donald Trump’s economic proposals should double the economy’s growth rate by 2018. After the beating that my retirement funds have taken over the past eight years, I’d be pleased to see that. One of the reasons I now plan to work until I’m 75 is the economy’s poor performance over the past decade—and I don’t blame Bush. As the CNBC post notes,
Obama is the first president since Herbert Hoover not to see at least 3 percent growth for a calendar year.
The 20th of January can’t come too soon.
