Veteran academic and analyst Meghnad Desai and his fellow writers dissect the Trump phenomenon across a broad range of economic and social policies. They consider, too, the array of foreign policy questions to which he is having to pay attention.

Eugene Zhuchenko, Executive Director, LTIIA, contributes to the Fiscal Squalls section with an article “Finding the money”.

Yet when many voters feel betrayed by the political class, Trump’s characteristic as the first president for 60 years with no experience of elective office may be a benefit. After years of sub-standard growth, electorates dislike and distrust insiders. Trump’s economic policies, conventionally termed unconventional, may be a trump card.
