This morning was interesting to say the least. Just the prospect of Donald Trump as President sent the all the markets into a downward spiral. While the markets recover, people are trying to analyze where things went wrong for the Democrats. Some say it was the last blow of emails, some say it was Trump’s unconventional methods. In the end, what one fears most is probably, what is to come.
Throughout the last few months, the message coming our of Trump’s camp has been inconsistent and erratic. His policies, while seeming to favor Americans, don’t sound positive to the world. The US is not just a self-contained country. The policies set by the US largely affect all the markets around the world. How else could one country break the world in 2008. The period of turmoil we went through back then is a clear indicator of how powerful an influence one economy has.
I do however, favor his policies on infrastructure spending. He has promised to double the amount of spending that Clinton had promised. Anyone with even a basic understanding of economics can tell this ia positive step towards growing an economy. He was a smart businessman at one point, let’s hope he uses those life lessons to improve economic conditions.
Personally, I am disappointed. I had hoped that America would make world history by electing its first female president. With many of the powerful positions, the likes of Germany, Great Britain, Federal Reserve, IMF, held by women, I was so hopeful, the US would join in. Unfortunately, it isn’t so. The glass ceiling still exists and Hillary just couldn’t break through.
Needless to say, it is a time to wait and watch. Were the claims just antics to win an election or were they really policies that Mr. Trump will follow through on?
