Volume 10 // Special Issue: Origins and Implications of Donald Trump’s Economic Policy

Submission Deadline: May 31st, 2017

Ever since Donald J. Trump was sworn into office, ceaseless debates have been taking place among politicians and pundits about the various aspects of economic policy of the Donald Trump administration, ranging from across-the-board tax cuts to pulling out of NAFTA. While some elements of his proposal sound familiar, such as tax cuts, the repeal of (financial) regulations, or the aggressive fiscal policy (e.g. the trillion-dollar infrastructure spending), some are fairly new to the minds of 21th century economists. The latter includes the government-led reshoring (re-relocation of production base to the US) along with the anti-free trade policy, or the revival of the dying coal industry. Also, some part of his economic promises seem to echo with progressive economists’ agenda, while the other are downright reactionary. For this unfamiliarity and ambiguity, economists appear to have trouble defining what Trumponomics is, even though it is imperative to do so considering the enormous effects this administration will make for the US and the world economy. Therefore, the NSER special issue seeks to initiate rigorous discussions on the origin and implications of Trump’s economic policy to facilitate common understanding of the new regime we are facing now.
