Trump’s “Economics” Team

Tweet [1]

I’ve not yet carefully studied Trump’s newly announced roster of economic advisors [2], but I was disappointed, although not surprised, that one of Trump’s new economic advisors is the mercantilist economist Peter Navarro [3].

Here are Cafe Hayek links to some items on Navarro’s faulty economics [4].

Navarro is often described as a “trade expert.” ┬áThis description is about as accurate as is the description of a faith-healer as a “medical expert” – neither “expert” displays any evidence of understanding the science of the topic on which he is allegedly an expert.
