President Trump – Why Market Loves Him and Experts Are Wrong

President Trump – Why Market Loves Him and Experts Wrong

Yet he also managed to sum up in that one impassioned line (written in The New York Times in the immediate aftermath of the vote), why people don’t trust “experts”.

The Dow Jones is now trading at an all-time high. That might not last, but it’s a pretty definitive rebuttal of that dangerous little word, “never”.

Worse still, for Paul though, is the reason that the Dow is now trading at an all-time high.

It’s because markets believe that Trump might just do exactly what Paul and his fellow left-ish economists have been crying out for for years.
