Could Donald Trump help the Fed achieve its inflation goals?

The Federal Reserve has been trying to get inflation up towards its 2% target for years and now the president-elect could help them achieve this goal. Share Radio’s Robert Van Egghen has been speaking to Brett Ryan, Senior US Economist at Deutsche Bank, about the forecast for the Trump administration.

A new period of fiscal stimulus for the US, but can Trump’s policy pledges be achieved?
As Donald Trump prepares to assemble his economic team, markets are rallying in expectation of a new period of fiscal stimulus. However, with Republicans in Congress set on strict deficit reduction targets, Mr Trump may be unlikely to achieve his policy pledges, including $1trn worth of spending on infrastructure. Robert Van Egghen has been speaking to Jim O'Sullivan, Chief US Economist at High Frequency Economics, who explained why the Republican party could stop Mr Trump from fulfilling his spending promises.

John Phelan chief economist at Agrimoney discusses Trump and Hilary’s economic policies.
Simon Rose was joined by John Phelan chief economist at Agrimoney to discuss Trump and Hilary’s economic policies. Trump seems to view trade as a zero sum game, a fight with winners and losers. He talks of the all the money the US supposedly 'loses' to China or wherever. What he fails to mention is the goods and services China 'loses' to the US in return for these bits of paper. Hilary thinks all government spending is investment and believes in myths like the minimum wage and the gender pay gap.

This is Money: Playing the Trump Card
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. It’s been a politically turbulent year, and this week the pollsters were proved wrong again as Donald Trump defied all odds to become 45th President of the United States. The billionaire real estate developer and TV personality with no political experience beat establishment favourite Hillary Clinton in one of the bitterest campaigns in history. With the markets swerving in all directions the eyes of the world are now on the United States waiting to see what a Trump presidency will bring. What will it mean for post-Brexit Britain? Despite Barrack Obama’s previous description of the UK being “at the back of the queue” Mr. Trump certainly appears more open to trade deals. Editor Simon Lambert and reporter Sarah Davidson join Georgie Frost to look at what could come of the shock victory and how it happened. Could being “a master of mess” be the key? That’s the theory being put forward by one economist. Also on this week’s show we look at the fallout from the Tesco Bank hack, the latest victims to rising food prices and how a wood burning stove could provide a cheaper way of keeping your home cosy this Christmas. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Share Radio Breakfast: What might the Post-Trump US economy start to look like next year?
George Magnus, Senior Economic Adviser to UBS, joined Share Radio to talk about the US Election result. And his message is: brace yourselves! After the initial sell off, the trading world's reaction to the election of Donald Trump has been far from the market bloodbath many forecast. But George says the liberal global order represented by US-led institutions such as the UN, the IMF, the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation is hanging in the balance.
