What are the economic origins of the Donald Trump election phenomena and is it part of the wave of voter revolts that include Brexit and the re-emergence of One Nation as a political force in Australia? Is free trade to blame? Or is it wage stagnation and rising inequality? What will a Trump Presidency mean for the world, economically speaking? What will it mean for global trade, for economic growth and for financial markets, for income distribution and for the environment?
