Faint Praise

08/21/2017

I have been a member of the National Association of Business Economics (NABE) for many years.  While it is strictly a non-partisan organization, it is on the more conservative end of the political spectrum, especially compared to the more liberal American Economics Association, which is favored by academic economics.  NABE is a voice for working economists, outside of academia.

In their latest quarterly review, only 14% of NABE respondents believe the President’s executive actions on immigration will be beneficial for the economy, while 65% believe those actions will hurt the economy.

When asked about the President’s executive actions on foreign trade, only 13% of the respondents believe those actions will help, while 59% believe those actions will hurt the economy.

Obviously, few economists are part of the President’s “core supporters.”
