“I alone can fix it.”

Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

– US pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump in his speech at the Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion in July. How­ever, con­cerns re­main over his planned eco­nomic and trade poli­cies, and the im­pli­ca­tions for the world econ­omy. Trump dis­played his com­plete lack of un­der­stand­ing of ba­sic eco­nomics dur­ing the cam­paign by say­ing he would “bor­row know­ing that if the econ­omy col­lapses you could make a deal”. He was also quoted as say­ing that the US gov­ern­ment would “never have to de­fault be­cause you print the money”. (Also see story on page 16.)
