Econintersect: This lecture was presented to the inaugural session of the Liberty Restoration Foundation in Orlando, FL October, 2011.
Stephen Bannon, the CEO of Donald Trump's successful presidential campaign and to-be Chief Strategist in the Trump White House, describes his view of what is wrong with America in 2011. He maintains that:
The U.S. cannot meet its future obligations.
Government spending is sucking money out of "everything else".
The trade deficit is the "beating heart" of our economic problems.
The Tea Party understands what's wrong with America because members know the price of a bag of groceries.
