For starters

Lower the corporate tax rate. If you think that is detrimental to American workers you are wrong.

Eliminate the onerous environment regulation that Obama did to please his base. If you think that will lead to more pollution you are wrong.

Both will have massive impact on job creation. I can go on forever.

Before you laugh, I am one of the corporate "they" that finds global locations to build manufacturing plants.

Go to his website for the specifics.

The poster asked for Trump's position on things. Your comment is a non sequitur.

I am one of the people who will gain by Trump lowering the corporate tax rate.
That been said he is without a doubt the worst candidate ever to be elected president since tricky ****y got the boot.

What does that even mean? Worst?

He won.

McCain. He was bad. And Dole.

Do you want a smooth liar, or a tell it straight president?

I'm still waiting for my $2500 annual savings from Obamacare.

Re: It's a great day

What taxes should he increase to make the reduction in corporate taxes revenue neutral? FWIW, I'm actually in favor of eliminating corporate taxes altogether, but combined with increases in taxes on the wealthy (myself included) to compensate in total revenue.

The issue if pollution regulation is complex. The are in the US is better than it was many years ago by an amount that matters - Los Angeles use to be really bad (I remember personally). There is some crazy environmental regulation but its difficult to separate from the really necessary stuff. I'm certainly glad to see the end of leaded gas, reductions in diesel emissions, car emission etc. These have had noticeable effects on my personal quality of life. (I grew up in a heavily industrial area - and pollution was a real problem). So I'm fine with the idea of smarter regulation but need details. If the big limits stay in place (which I would like them to) I doubt it is a major impact on industry.

There is a big issue when environmental regulations force work to other countries with even worse regulations. This is a tricky trade subject that should be addressed.

CO2 is of course a different question. I'm convinced of anthropogenic climate change. I'm a professional scientist, and all of my associates agree. (we are not in a field related to climate science, no personal stake in this). It seems to be selfish and frankly wrong for the US to stop working on this when the great majority of the rest of the world is (yes including China - the are behind but working hard at it).


I don't see massive gains in employment from this. The rate now is about 5%, which is close to a natural unemployment rate in a typical economy. (natural meaning that few industries want to hire the lowest 5th percentile employees for anything, so unemployment rarely gets very low).

Wages are low, but that is different from unemployment.

Trump is a non sequitur. His picture is in the dictionary for it.

I tell fellow canuks I hate hockey and they always think I"m joking. Especially because I'm a huge football fan.

Has to do with relatives and weddings and players thinking they're gods gift to women and knowing some personally and crap like that. The public image is SO not true.

Blue,the guy wouldn't know the truth if it hit him in the face.Hilary is no better.Ok he won,but at what price to the average American citizen.I don't know how much travel you do,I travel abroad a lot.We are the laughing stock of the world and it is this attitude of you are either with us or against us that will alienate the USA even more.If you think America can thrive in the worlds markets while Trump insults anyone that disagrees with him you are sadly delusional
Trump's ideal world is a race to the bottom,some job gains maybe but all at minimum wage.He does not have the diplomatic skills to carry this job and the average joe is the one who will suffer.

I'm not going to teach you economics over TAM posts. You think the pie is fixed. Cutting corporate tax rate expands the pie. It is not zero sum.

The announced unemployment rate is a fallacy both parties use. It does not reflect underemployment or those that gave up looking. The labor participation rate is a better metric.

If you are not studying climate change, your opinion is immaterial unless you analyze the data. Listening to interpretation by others is not science.

If you think China is "working on this" you have low expectations. I am very familiar with China manufacturing. It's my job that pays my TAM bill. :-)

I am a professional scientist and economist too. We differ on this. That's ok.

Rather than *****, participate in the process. The guy hasn't even been president for 12 hours.

Now let's see if the weak Republican congressional leadership steps up.
