World Policy Newsletter, Week of February 17th

trump rally

Welcome to the World Policy newsletter, brought to you by...

Peter Lupoff analyzes recent U.S. equity market performances and explains why fourth-quarter gains may have nothing to do with Donald Trump's election.  

James H. Nolt anticipates that Trump's protectionist trade policies will hurt not only foreign countries and companies, but also American corporations and consumers.

Amanda Mattingly predicts that the Cuban government's resistance to market-friendly reform and declining oil subsidies from Venezuela could strain Cuba’s stagnant economy even further, especially given the Trump administration is unlikely to lift the economic embargo on the island nation.  


Around the Institute  

On Wednesday, March 1, World Policy Institute is hosting its next World Economic Roundtable on “The Trump Economic Program: Where Do We Go From Here?” featuring Anthony Scaramucci, a senior adviser to President Trump. Scaramucci will discuss what to expect from the president’s economic agenda in the months ahead and explore its likely effects on economic growth, employment, and America’s investment and trade relations with other major economies. Scaramucci was the founder of the global investment firm SkyBridge Capital and served as co-managing partner before selling the firm this January in order to take a position in the Trump administration.  

Please note this is a members-only event. If you’d like to attend, please consider enrolling in the World Policy Membership Program today.
