The businessman in chief has got some strong insights when it comes to revitalizing the job market and productivity. But how will he do it, and who will be the loser in the exchange?
We were told that Trump would throw the economy into chaos. Just like with the comparable Brexit movement, we were threatened with financial instability, failing markets and trade wars- and like with Brexit- Trump’s election has already emboldened our economy.
In Trump’s first week in office, the NYSE reached a high that we had never seen before, or even thought possible. Trump supporters said it was his doing while detractors said he had nothing to do with it. The truth is, the Trump administration is having systemic effects on investor confidence that is raising all boats. Trump doesn’t even have to move his pen to improve the economy. All he has to do is say that he will.
How is that possible? Reputation has a lot to do with it. People in the business world realize that they aren’t dealing with any ordinary politician. They know that Trump knows business, and they have seen him keeping his campaign promises. That means, if he says he will do it, it’s a safe bet that he will.
It also means that even if his reasons are unclear, they are good reasons- and his track record of success shows it.
Another thing people in the business world know about Donald Trump is that unlike businessmen turned politicians- like Mitt Romney- Trump did not make his fortune by corrupting companies, waiting for them to collapse and then betting on the fallout. Trump built his empire on success, not on poison and plunder. That’s a major factor in the way the international business community is responding to him.
Trump is not creating jobs, he is attracting them. Over the weekend the prime minister of Japan and President Trump began working on a deal that would send 700,000 tech manufacturing jobs to the U.S. The international business community sees that Trump does what he does by building, not by destroying, and whether or not business leaders are honest- they’re smart enough to go with the flow- and Trump is changing the tide.
The president has said a great deal about wanting to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. This is already doing wonders for the confidence of companies, investors, and workers. But the question of how Donald Trump can sustain the expected boons is a fair one, and the answer requires a bit of forbidden knowledge.
The answer lies in the factors behind inflation. Inflation is not what we are commonly told it is- the hiking of prices. Price hikes are a result of inflation- and as a famous economist once said, not one person in a million can accurately diagnose the true cause of inflation. You, dear reader, are about to become one in a million.
Inflation is what happens when too much currency is pumped into the economy. When this is done, we are told it is done to stimulate the economy. But that is not honest. When judging a governmental action one must look at the result, and not the stated purpose for the simple fact that the result of flooding the market with cash always has the same result for as far back as the Roman Empire- inflation.
Inflation is the devaluing of a currency caused by the artificially elevated accessibility of that currency. So, when they tell us they want to make cash more readily available, what they are saying is that the money in your savings account is going to be degraded in value. The lost value of your money does not vaporize, it rises up to those who possess the newly minted cash.
This is why counterfeiting is illegal because the counterfeiter is draining the value of everyone else’s money by introducing new tender to the economy. But when lawmakers do it, it’s called economic stimulus.
Trump understands this, making him one in a million who can diagnose inflation. So, you’re in good company. He understands that to benefit the working class, he must bolster our ability to produce value. That means manufacturing, agriculture, and innovation- not printing currency.
To answer the question of who will be the loser in this exchange; the legal counterfeiters will lose.
This is how we know that he is on the right path to creating real prosperity for the nation. When most politicians would simply fire up to money printing press and welcome the easy adulation of their peers- a real master of finance- whose heart is in the right place will stoke the fires of industry. And that is what Trump is doing.
