Prominent Economists, Including Eight Nobel Laureates: ‘Do Not Vote for Donald Trump’

If Trump’s hateful, racist rhetoric and history of a sexual predator is not enough … for some reason polls show people trust Trump and Hillary equally on economic matters. That’s INSANE, but you don’t have to take my word for it — listen to a rare moment of consensus from 8 Nobel Prize laureates, and over 350 other economists. You do not want to trust Trump with the economy, with your jobs, and with your wages, he’s going to be a disaster.

For the people in your life who are voting Trump and can’t afford to entrust their livelihoods to Trump and his economic approach that these economists call “magical thinking and conspiracy theories over sober assessments of feasible economic policy options.”

If facts matter, if subject matter expertise matter, if reality matters, “the economy” is the cornerstone of Trump’s credentials, and — from across an economic ideological spectrum, on a pure evaluation of basic competence — Trump is universally rejected by people who actually know what they are talking about.

I guess that’s a big “if” though.
