Economic trends, critical issues, and policy positions advanced by President Trump are impacting the U.S. and world economy, international business, the labor force, manufacturing, and corporate competitiveness. Combined with Brexit, new destructive technologies, the American energy revolution, China rising, and greater levels of volatility, these issues are shaping our future.
