The delirious Trump roller coaster is nearing escape velocity. Millions welcomed the Swamp Drainer (mea culpa) for his promise to unsaddle the Masters of the Universe. He seemed to try in Year 1, with a wrecking ball. Come Year 2, a bunch of new Masters were in the saddle, with wrecker-in-chief as the rebel leader. It is Year 3 and his swings are scaling ballistic highs. A whole new full spectrum political, financial, economic, trade, sanctions and military tsunami of bluster and belligerence is pitting America against the whole world. Friend or foe doesn't matter. If you get in the way of the orange juggernaut, it’s curtains for you! 

A hugely entertaining spectacle for those not in his sights, yet. A cause for (homi/sui)cidal desperation in others, am sure. Whichever way it ends, this tale will be told and retold by generations to come. Be careful what you wish for...

He contributes writing for Mises Institute (Austrian Economics?)

He almost destroys my trust/hope in the Donald, eh, Ramani?

While I never thought Trump was capable of 4D and 5D chess, I held on for two years to the hope his unpredictability and volatility would throw the neocons and Deep Staters off their stride. Perhaps not enough to boot every single warmonger, profiteer and snoop out of Dodge. But at least reintroduce them to the fear of public accountability and consequences. More than half way into his first term, and looking set to win a second, all Trump seems to have achieved are inflamed passions within the US and tension and chaos around the world.

As a student of Austrian economics (sensible economics, that is), I am an ardent believer of Joseph Schumpeter's creative destruction theory. I wasn't prepared for Trump's destructive destruction which seems the frenzied desperation of an empire on its way down. Where many of us had wished for a Lafayette, Robespierre, Guevara or even Lenin, we have ended up with a Nero. Maybe he has changed America and the world. The way a fire changes the fate of a fish in a frying pan.
