Hi Janet,

Thank you.  I have three short comments:

 

1/If one understands the phenomenon of national culture, he cannot reject Trump. The wall is about the unchangeable cultural traits of immigrant populations, which might destroy your country if they stay unchecked. Unfortunately, there is no greater ignorance than in matters of culture and your admired author si no exception;

 

2/Trump scores even higer regarding free global trade, which is an impossible institutional setting in a world of coercive national states. It is nothing more than a shameless manipulatory policy conceived by the powerful Western groups.  No one had the courage to tackle that except Trump;

 

3/Veblen was on  about right track but he achieved less than a coherent solid perspective able to remove the heavily manipulatory Western orthodox economics.  Bringing him in to tacle the problems which Trumps scrambles to solve is not proper.

 


My best,

Paul
