Vox, August 5, 2016: Trump's economic team has a lot of billionaires, very few economic experts
Trump's list of economic advisors is full of billionaire businessmen but only one academic economist, Peter Navarro. Navarro is probably on the list because of his book, Death by China. Navarro is another China alarmist, who thinks that trade with China has had disastrous consequences.
I hope we can discuss his economic team without getting into derivatives and CFMA. That's why I have started a new thread rather than getting it buried in off topic posts in other threads.
With a quick look, I don't think any of these white men on his team are MMTers. Quoting Vox:
"The list includes a couple of prominent real estate tycoons and several people who made their fortunes in finance. Also on the list: oil and gas billionaire Harold Hamm and Howard Lorber, who has major holdings in cigarettes as well as real estate.
"In short, Trump has assembled an independent-minded and opinionated collection of rich businessmen. They could provide a valuable conduit for dissenting points of view in the insular Trump campaign."
