I was thinking about Trump last night and he is still a (political) enigma for me.

It's his method that's so distasteful but I hand it to him he is getting outcomes he said he would that others who tried more traditional tacks didn't. Perennial question: do the ways and means justify the outcome? Very likely not. At least he is cushioned by the US Constitution.

It's all great until it's not - thinking of the man who made the trains run on time and the Austrian fella who got people back in work.

"Yeh, after that blow out I bid the bonds at 76 and you hit man...You're 77/81 now? Cool man...What? Do I care at 80? No mate... I'm 73 bid now...I'm sure you didn't just load up just for me...".

Beeing the neo-marxist technocrat I am and comming from a country (germany) that is disappointed if it doesn't become "exportweltmeister" every year, I am not exactly sure if I think that his protectionism is an extremly bad idea?

But is it because he actually thinks outside of mainstream economics, or just because it serves his "us against them" narrative?
