Publisher's Summary

Donald Trump promised the American people a transformative change in economic policy after eight years of stagnation under Obama. But he didn’t adopt a conventional left or right economic agenda. His is a new economic populism that combines some conventional Republican ideas - tax cuts, deregulation, more power to the states - with more traditional Democratic issues such as trade protectionism and infrastructure spending. It also mixes in important populist issues such as immigration reform, pressuring the Europeans to pay for more of their own defense, and keeping America first.   

In Trumponomics, conservative economists Stephen Moore and Arthur B. Laffer offer a well-informed defense of the president's approach to trade, taxes, employment, infrastructure, and other economic policies. Moore and Laffer worked as senior economic advisors to Donald Trump in 2016. They traveled with him, frequently met with his political and economic teams, worked on his speeches, and represented him as surrogates. They are currently members of the Trump Advisory Council and still meet with him regularly. In Trumponomics, they offer an insider’s view on how Trump operates in public and behind closed doors, his priorities and passions, and his greatest attributes and liabilities.   

Trump is betting his presidency that he can create an economic revival in America’s industrial heartland. Can he really bring jobs back to the Rust Belt? Can he cut taxes and bring the debt down? Above all, does he have the personal discipline, the vision, the right team, and the right strategy to pull off his ambitious economic goals? Moore and Laffer believe he can pull it off and that Trumponomics will usher in a new era of prosperity for all Americans.

Spectacular insider account of economic recovery

Page turner... Steve Moore and Art Laffer, 2 of the nation's leading supply side economists provide a scintillating account of how they came to be architects of tax reform and deregulation under the current administration.

Moore and Laffer are the best!

Very easy to understand explanation of why the economy was so anemic under Obama, and why it is so robust with Trump's policies. I am so thankful these guys were able to shape recent economic policy. I have been a fan of Laffer since I was in college. He has always embodied the positive Reagan message that individuals, when given the freedom to do so, will do more to make things better for themselves, and there fellow beings than can ever be achieved through coercion by a tyrannical dictator, or a well meaning democratic majority.

I wish Moore had made it to the Fed, he is right about deflation being a bigger threat to stable prices than inflation.

All The Objectivity Of A Fox News Report

Despite being authored by two distinguished economists, the vast majority of this book is not an objective analysis of Trumponomics. Except for the last chapter dealing with Trump’s trade policies, this book is written with the objectivity of a Fox News report.
The authors thoroughly discuss Trump policies that have had a positive economic impact, but often ignore those that have had a negative impact. The book explains the positive impact that Trump energy policies have had on the income of farmers who lease their land to oil and gas drillers. Yet, the book ignores the decimation of our soy bean farmers by China’s retaliation to Trump’s tariffs.
The book extols the positive economic impact of Trump’s tax cuts, but provides no analysis of the degree to which those benefits are reduced by Trump’s tariffs.

Interesting

Very interesting and one of the few books that protect and support President Trump. Interesting and well explained economical decisions pro and against in different moments of Trump Presidency. The author is one of the most respected of course, but the way him (and the other economists that doesnt agree with him for that matter) put the questions of how US will keep its superpower status is wrong on my point of view. US economy have to invent itself and be strong at home first, and only than can care to compare in the world. A happy and wealthy US citizen should be the aim of the economy. Than the status should follow. By only competing with words and trade tariffs may create problems for a chinese or europian citizen
but will not help (in contrary will hurt) the US citizen.

MAGA

great book that goes in to detail on the tax policy. Wish the media would talk about the good economy instead of spreading fake news on the president.

Terrific

Since I love economics and history, it all rang true. This story is sorely needed now that democrats are off the rails. Fun, easy read.

Brilliant Justification for Ignorance

If you want to understand the reasoning behind the alt Right-wing phenomenon happening globally, this is the perfect book for you.

Hear Stephen Moore and Arthur B Laffer disregard the world’s leading historians and scientists to justify their return to a pre WW1 world. Promoting coal, tax cuts for the ultra wealthy, nationalism, tariffs and no safety net for the poor.

The brilliant piece of ignorance and idiocy.
