Trump vs. Koch, And the Winner Is?

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

Which one is better? Trump or Koch?

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

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.
