1,100 economists warn that tRump is repeating one of the biggest mistakes of the Great Depression:

The letter, organized by the conservative-leaning National Taxpayers Union, warned that recent tariffs and trade protectionism were harmful to the economy.
The economists cited a 1930 letter that warned Congress against passing the Smoot-Hawley Act, a large package of tariffs that many studies cite as a major reason for the depth of the Great Depression.

"Congress did not take economists' advice in 1930, and Americans across the country paid the price“

You mean like the left-wing POTUS who saved America from the Great Depression?

Yeah, the Left in America always delivers a better economy and the right just a bigger handout to the richest!

You mean the way Obama "bailed out" the big banks, mega corporations and the world's richest handful of billionaires? We still don't know where most of the "stimulus money" went. Now with Trump most of us have significantly bigger pay checks.

Gee! Experts give me a hard-on!

What caused the depression was stock market investments based on assets that didn't exist, essentially gambling with bank loans.

What's the scoop today? We gamble with student loans, housing equity, investment assets that have been hidden from taxation overseas...

You got the fever buddy. You can't cure your addiction.

Most of Trumps money comes from bank loans, from a Russian owned bank. Trump can not even run a casino profitably . He did finally find something he excelled at, money laundering. Him and his children have found the perfect crime for a very stupid crime family. Only problem, it is against the law.

I agree that if a Republican were in the White House then, the banks would have been allowed to collapse and America would be in another Great Depression. Whew! That was close!

Now with Trump's bonehead trade wars, we will see if there will be a Deep Trumpcession or The Great Trumpression.
