Was President Trump's tax cut unreasonably regressive

Trump global

What is behind the new US economic policy shaped by Donald Trump? Is a Populist Presidency in the United States a Temporary Phenomenon? This book explains why "Trumpism" is a structural problem and what consequences US protectionism and inconsistent economic policies will have for the US, the European Union and Asia. Economically, Trump destroys multilateralism and the work of international organizations - the US under Trump supports BREXIT and undermines integration projects worldwide. European countries could help the US restore stability in a non-populist framework by exporting elements of the successful social market economy. Weaknesses in the US health system, not only visible since the coronavirus crisis, could be overcome in this way.
