Trump vs. Koch, And the Winner Isâ?¦

Investment expert Jim Woods shares the results of the Trump vs. Koch debacle.

Which one is betterâ?¦ Trump or Koch?

If you read last weekâ??s The Deep Woods, you know that this was the question I asked readers to weigh in on. In a moment, weâ??ll get to the results, along with my view on some of the very thoughtful responses I received.

But if you didnâ??t get a chance to read last weekâ??s issue, then allow me to give you a brief recap of the latest ideological taste test that pits President Trump against billionaire libertarian activists Charles and David Koch.

Here, I borrowed the set up of the famous â??Pepsi Challenge,â?ť by inviting readers to tell me which ideological stance they preferred. Hereâ??s how I set up the two â??intellectual cupsâ?ť to choose from:

In the first intellectual cup (President Trump) you get a mixture ofâ?¦ tax cuts, deregulation, economic nationalism, populism, protectionism, tariffs, the concept of trade wars are â??goodâ?ť and easily winnable, a zero-sum view of trade policy, a crackdown on immigration and the view that it is a net negative for the economy.

But if you didn’t get a chance to read last week’s issue, then allow me to give you a brief recap of the latest ideological taste test that pits President Trump against billionaire libertarian activists Charles and David Koch.

Here, I borrowed the set up of the famous “Pepsi Challenge,” by inviting readers to tell me which ideological stance they preferred. Here’s how I set up the two “intellectual cups” to choose from:

In the first intellectual cup (President Trump) you get a mixture of… tax cuts, deregulation, economic nationalism, populism, protectionism, tariffs, the concept of trade wars are “good” and easily winnable, a zero-sum view of trade policy, a crackdown on immigration and the view that it is a net negative for the economy.
