Back in Jan. 2017 Deutsche Bank began thinking about it, applying new models, trying to conceptualize/quantify
2/7 #MAGAnomics, and trying to walk out the potential ramifications. They began talking about Trump doubling U.S. GDP growth rate when all U.S. investment groups couldn’t yet fathom the possibility.

3/7 Fed struggling to quantify analysis of their surrounding reality based on FLAWED assumptions. They simply have NO UNDERSTANDING of what happens within the NEW DIMENSION.
