I don't think Congress is THAT dumb.. Taxes will be cut for some.. and raised for others, so that it's revenue neutral for the govt. We just don't know who's going to get hit with the big bill yet.

And Trump is supposed to be a great businessman... how could he allow the fed debt to soar? Trump may try to impose tariffs to make up for tax cuts? I'm not convinced how that will work out in the long run, though....

Too late. I've already thrown away all the fax machines I ever owned. And.. I've never actually owned a typewriter! (I've used one, but it wasn't mine....)

Kids today don't know why CRT displays are so big....

@dmendyk - there you go!  I think the Fed will dig in and truly function independently - thank goodness - and no hacked emails!

Re: Transformed
The federal debt will soar to dizzying heights. It will have to with all the tax-cutting that will take place, even if spending doesn't accelerate. The appetite for US debt will diminish greatly. The Fed is going to be an important firewall. Let's hope it turns out to be stronger than the Clinton firewalls.

Re: Transformed
@dmendyk - I love the "cyclone fence" - that is priceless!

You are absolutely correct - there has to be money some where - although he is used to spending and then claiming bankruptcy (let's hope that is not the model he has for us).  But the small matter of the growing national debt does have to be taken into account on the federal level and you are right about local and state governments.

Re: Transformed
The physical infrastructure issue is another huge (there's that word again) question. Most of these projects are funded at the state or local level, and those governments can barely afford to deliver basic services, let alone fund new initiatives (unless of course we're talking about massive sports venues that mainly benefit wealthy owners). The chances that the new Congress would authorize any significant public works spending are about as great as my chances of becoming the next Attorney General. So other than the purported Giant Wall, we'll see where that goes (and no one will be surprised if the Giant Wall turns out to be a cyclone fence with some barbed wire for decoration).

@dcawrey - no matter what it will be "great"!

Really though, how can you have a sound economic recovery policy and programs without understanding the digital transformation.  Hopefully he will follow your advice and recruit people who do have the knowledge.  I note the tech stocks have not recovered since the election.

Re: Transformed
@dmendyk - let's hope - that is a positive thought certainly - although he "knows more about everything than everyone!"

Agreed about manufacturing - let's see what this channel produces - at least there is a lot of infrastructure building to be done - so it may cover his presidency.

Re: Transformed
Regulations typically have both good and bad effects, so removing them will also have both good and bad effects. The issue regarding telecom is that most of the operative regulations are at the state and local levels, which aren't reachable by the executive branch of the federal government.
