VIDEO: Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Stephen Moore, co-author of “Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy,” He talks about his experience working with the real Donald Trump and how he advised him on the tax bill. Stephen discusses the benefits of a flat tax and that most people against the flat tax are not liberals, but lobbyists in Washington D.C who are always lobbying for loopholes in the tax code. Stephen also shares many metrics that mainstream media overlooks about how well the economy is doing under Trump. He also discusses his first hand accounts of Trump’s negotiation skills and how he used them for the tax cuts and job act. He finishes by discussing what he feels is a new cold war with China.
Donald Trump promised the American people a transformative change in economic policy after eight years of stagnation under Obama. But he didn’t adopt a conventional left or right economic agenda. His is a new economic populism that combines some conventional Republican ideas–tax cuts, deregulation, more power to the states–with more traditional Democratic issues such as trade protectionism and infrastructure spending. It also mixes in important populist issues such as immigration reform, pressuring the Europeans to pay for more of their own defense, and keeping America first.
In Trumponomics, conservative economists Stephen Moore and Arthur B. Laffer offer a well-informed defense of the president’s approach to trade, taxes, employment, infrastructure, and other economic policies. Moore and Laffer worked as senior economic advisors to Donald Trump in 2016. They traveled with him, frequently met with his political and economic teams, worked on his speeches, and represented him as surrogates. They are currently members of the Trump Advisory Council and still meet with him regularly. In Trumponomics, they offer an insider’s view on how Trump operates in public and behind closed doors, his priorities and passions, and his greatest attributes and liabilities.
Trump is betting his presidency that he can create an economic revival in America’s industrial heartland. Can he really bring jobs back to the rust belt? Can he cut taxes and bring the debt down? Above all, does he have the personal discipline, the vision, the right team, and the right strategy to pull off his ambitious economic goals? Moore and Laffer believe that he can pull it off and that Trumponomics will usher in a new era of prosperity for all Americans.
“Stephen Moore and Arthur Laffer, two very talented men, have just completed an incredible book on my Economic Policies, or, as they call it, TRUMPONOMICS. They have really done a great job in capturing my long-held views and ideas. This book is on sale now―a terrific read of a really interesting subject!” ―President Donald Trump
