Trump Will Make Make You Pay For It

So, Trump is going to build a wall and Mexico will pay for it. The president is absolutely extraordinary at getting people to pay for things. What you may not be clear on is that Trump is going to make you pay for everything in the end, including the wall between the United States and Mexico.

How will he make you pay? First he will manipulate you into needing his approval. Then you will believe anything he says. He will make you feel like a patriot for promoting your own poverty. Then he will manipulate you into a position where paying is your only choice. Paying will certainly be your path of least resistance. That is how he is getting Mexico to pay. He will convince you that paying is a good thing so you will be deemed a good American in his eyes. Lastly, he will make sure you cannot figure out exactly how money is being drained out of your pockets.

Convincing people that tariffs are a good deal is easy because people don’t think when it comes to politics. It is much harder to convince people that it is best to run an 8 cylinder engine on just 7 cylinders. It makes about as much sense to tax foreign goods and services coming into the country.

What the Trump tariffs will cost you amounts to far more than a wall between the United States and Mexico. If a shooting war breaks out as a result, tariffs may cost you your life. The Trump fiscal stimulus initiative is transferring countless dollars in wealth from the bottom of the food chain to the top. Does anyone mind? Who is thinking about it?

The economic recovery has been completely fueled by rising asset prices. Trump is pressuring the Federal Reserve to make even more money available for stock buybacks in order to push the market even higher. Just know that in time it will all crash since the values are largely artificial. When the economy collapses, you will end up paying for it with bailouts. When that happens, Trump will make you feel like a hero, patriot and a genuine wonderful person for stepping up and bailing out the billionaires of the world.

Just know that when Trump says some other country is going to pay for something, it is you who are going to get the final bill.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
