Increase the cost of access to the American market.
Trump will reduce regulations and taxes to make America wealthier, but he will also raise the cost of being outside of the American labor market.
Nothing is stopping Goldman Sachs or Google from moving their HQ overseas. If they can’t or won’t move overseas, then Mr. Trump is correct: the United States can charge more. The explicit support for Obama and Clinton also tells us American companies are willing to pay more for market access. They are willing to pay higher taxes, and suffer higher regulations.
Mr. Trump’s goal is not a rearrangement of wealth in America, a transfer of rich to poor. Instead, he wants to grow the pie much larger, but also keep more at home. Under his policies, corporations will make far more than they would under Clinton.
Yet, most likely companies such as Google and Goldman Sachs, multinationals that are American in name only, will loudly oppose President Trump. Foreign multinationals, such as InBev, the owner of Budweiser, will play ball.
In a recent essay, a Huffington Post writer makes the incredible argument that while the Second Amendment guarantees U.S. citizens the right to carry and stockpile arms, it does not give the right to shoot violent attackers in self-defense because to do so would deny assailants a fair trial.
If the reasoning sounds convoluted, that’s because it is.
Socialism is too ready to suppose that better economic conditions will of themselves make men happy. It is not only more material goods that men need, but more freedom, more self direction, more outlets for creativeness, more opportunity for the joy of life, more voluntary cooperation and less involuntary subservience to purposes not their own.

“The central planners of Democratic Socialism tighten their noose when people resist their plans and assert their rights. All Socialism is intended to devolve into Communism, and as a result, Totalitarianism.”
A new scientific study provides powerful testimony to the extraordinary influences of electrical forces at the planetary scale. An electric wind recently measured at the planet Venus is said to be sufficiently strong that it can strip an entire planet of all its water components. The co-author of the study, NASA’s Glyn Collinson, said of these findings: “It’s amazing and shocking. We never dreamt an electric wind could be so powerful that it can suck oxygen right out of an atmosphere into space. This is something that definitely has to be on the checklist when we go looking for habitable planets around other stars.”
Wal Thornhill explains why this discovery is not surprising in an Electric Universe.
