370 top economists publish scathing letter against 'dangerous, destructive' Trump

Eight Nobel laureates joined 362 other economists in an open letter arguing that Americans should not vote for Donald Trump.
The letter, released Tuesday and reported on by the Wall Street Journal, lists 13 economic arguments against Trump, but does not specify which (if any) candidate voters choice in lieu of the Republican nominee.
"Donald Trump is a dangerous, destructive choice for the country. He misinforms the electorate, degrades trust in public institutions with conspiracy theories, and promotes willful delusion over engagement with reality," the economists write, according to a copy posted online by the Journal.

"If elected, he poses a unique danger to the functioning of democratic and economic institutions, and to the prosperity of the country. For these reasons, we strongly recommend that you do not vote for Donald Trump," the letter concludes.

7. The economists' letter is spot on. Because a Trump administration would bring about an economic

apocalypse.

8. 370 "top" economists... LOL. And this brain-trust has done WHAT to improve the economy?

I don't give a nickel for people who spend their lives in academe, writing books meant to get accolades from others who spend their lives in academe, while contributing nothing of substance to the world at large.
