What Would Trump Economics Mean for America

Mark Thornton and David Wolfin return as guests on the radio program.

Nixon declared that “we are all Keynesians now.” Indeed Keynesian economics has returned the world to the precipice of an economic dark age. Realizing that establishment claims that all is well in the land of Keynes is phony; Democrats are favoring the likes of Sanders who would be more Keynesian than Keynes.

Only Trump provides hope of a return to free market capitalism. But what would his economic policies look like? Are prospects so dire with the establishment that we may as well gamble with Trump? We asked economist Thornton for his views of what Trump economics might look like, for better or worse.

David Wolfin, who has done a marvelous job as CEO of Avino Silver and Gold Mines, provides an update on his company’s dramatic silver production growth and his soon to open gold mine in B.C.
