January 2019 marks the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. It also comes on the heels of America's November 2018 mid-term elections, seen by many as a referendum on the Trump presidency. This is thus an opportune time to explore the U.S. electorate's assessment of both President Trump and the Republican-led Congress. Are people pleased with the Administration's supply-side, trickle-down Trumpenomics characterized by de-regulation, low taxes, and high expenditures? Are they happy with the President's "America First" Trumpolemics consisting of nativism, isolationism, and trade wars? To answer these questions, Professor Rosengard will examine the current political economy of the United States, including implications for other countries as well as the U.S. 2020 presidential election.
