Telephone briefing - 'The political economy of Donald Trump'

A telephone briefing on the OMFIF report, 'The political economy of Donald Trump', discusses the Republican presidential candidate’s policy plans to use inexpensive debt to fund infrastructure projects. Author Lord (Meghnad) Desai asks whether Trump could surprise observers making dire predictions about his potential move into the White House and use unorthodox economic policies to remove obstacles to US growth.
