Discourse: Ford School faculty in the news from the spring 2017 edition of State & Hill
In the months following President Trump's win, national discourse has pivoted toward the new administration. As executive orders are released, as cabinet picks are announced, and as policy priorities emerge, the media has turned to many Ford School faculty members for context and clarification.
"The financial sector will get a nice sugar high for a few years, and then crash the economy."
"By encouraging men to cling to work that isn't coming back, Trump is doing them a disservice."
"Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."
"A good number of the policy steps that [Trump's energy secretary] took in Texas are actually pretty similar to what some Democratic governors along the coasts or in the industrial Midwest have tried in recent decades..."
”Unless the president-elect changes his stance in important respects, the outlook for a rise in the priority of public goods, at both the national and the international levels, is bleak indeed."
”Mr. Trump's anti-regulatory zeal may help businesses but hurt workers; his anti-trade agenda could help sellers but hurt buyers; and his instincts to protect existing jobs may advantage existing businesses at the expense of the next generation of entrepreneurs."
