Trumpism is not an economic policy; there is no economic content to the word. But it is a word of much appeal. If we are mesmerized by its pixy dust, our national conversation will never be about any of the serious issues that are convulsing our country. We are in the midst of a pandemic. The Coronavirus pandemic is gravely affecting our economic lives.

Solutions of the past are totally ineffective. Inequality is increasing-and was increasing before the onslaught of the pandemic; unemployment is increasing; bankruptcies are increasing; the national deficit is increasing; poverty is becoming more and more abject. We need novel solutions. As a result of fifty years of research and publication, there are novel solutions offered by a new system of thought called Concordian economics. However, our mind is too occupied by Trumpism to lend them an ear.

The sooner we get rid of the ballast of Trumpism, the better is.

Trumpism Is A Lie

Trumpism is the most egregious lie of the last four years: Trumpism is a word; there is no policy expressed by that word.

Worse, Trumpism is a word not even coined by Donald Trump himself. Apart from a speech by then-presidential candidate Rick Perry in July 2015, the term was propagated in the national press, to keep its readership excited.

It might eventually be agreed that the only content of Trumpism is eternal, opportunistic, transactional bullying.

Do not mention Trumpism ever again in the national press, and the presence of Trump himself will shrink into nullity--especially now that our social platforms have woken up to their responsibility of banning him for life, at least for now.

Imagine that. A President who, attempting to preserve his power indefinitely, as an autocrat, incites the mob to stage a coup. He sends the mob to kill his own faithful Vice President, Mike Pence. A republican. And Speaker Pelosi.

The Empty Content of Trumpism

Faced with the enormous problems of growing inequality, growing poverty, declining jobs, and declining wages, the Trump Administration during the last four years has been glowing in the elitist glitter of a growing Wall Street. How many Trump worshippers have been getting rich from Wall Street? How many MAGA People have been getting rich from Wall Street?
