text The President as Businessman by Rudolf Hickel
Trump's gigantic tax cuts will only benefit the rich. State indebtedness increases on account of neoliberal fiscal policy, not through infrastructure investments. Revenue losses of over six trillion dollars are expected for the first decade after the Trump tax cuts start. In his symbolic politics, Trump sells the illusion that the old order can be restored. Only market efficiency counts for this system, not social justice. Cancelling food, housing and health care benefits is sadism and greed,...
