Trump And The Global Economy town hall as really taken off. These are trying times that we live in. The actions of the government and the Trump administration, in particular, will impact our lives for years to come. That is why Trump and the Global Economy town hall, which explains the president’s policies and how they impact the community – is more important than ever. The event has become a staple of the downtown Brooklyn. It got a mixxy at the October 2017 event. One of the commenters from the crowd made the following comments:
His way of dealing with issues and being president of this country is for deceit, with lies … he says a lot of things to get veiwership … to get his base to be riled up. He believes that is what will keep him president and get things passed. What would I want from President Trump …. It’s really hard for me to say this but ….
The lady’s questions and comments left the panel dumbfounded. All those experts in one room – Wuyi Jacobs, Coconut Rob, Professor Lance Brofman, Shock Exchange’s Ralph Baker – they were all left speechless. That’s likely the first time you could say that about any of the panelists.
In October the president had not gotten anything accomplished other than spiking the stock market. Trump started out trying to repeal Obamacare. After several months of that he looked inept and the Republican party looked dysfunctional. Trump and Congressman Paul Ryan pointed attempted to assign blame over the Obamacare debacle. By year-end 2017 the entire mood had changed. The Republicans cut the corporate tax rate from 34% to 20% and were puffing out their chests for having “gotten something done.”
Will the president’s policies actually help or hurt the economy? Come find out at our next event on February 6th from 6PM – 8PM in Fort Greene Brooklyn.

The event was well-received by the community. We parsed through President Trump’s proposed tax plan and [i] how it was pure economic folly and [ii] high net worth individuals could potentially game the system by shifting income around. Apparently, Kansas Coach Bill Self did this when the state of Kansas cut taxes in the past. We discussed the pros and cons of technology on workers and the economy. How will the economy and country prosper under Trump’s leadership? What’s behind the verbal sparring with black athletes, ESPN’s Jemele Hill and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un?
