Many of our readers have no doubt heard news reports of Trump's recent interview with The Economist.
If you read this blog, you are probably interested in consumer policy, and, in turn, may be interested in economic policy. If so, read the interview. The interview goes beyond the Trump lies (or gross ignorance) that you've been reading about in the press – for instance, that he (Trump) just recently invented the term "priming the pump" or that while Trump is "proud" of his tax returns, he's not going to release them, if at all, until he's out of office (which might be a lot sooner than he thinks). The interview puts on full display the complete incoherence of his economic "thinking." Read the interview here.
