"Trump-Flation" Tactics Should Terrify You: Toronto Engineer/Author Warns the World

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 00:00:00 EDT

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 27, 2016) - In response to Trump's terrifying economic policies (outlined in yesterday's presidential debate) mercurial author Mike Verge has just coined the term "Trump-flation." In Verges' timely new book, "Global Deflation, and the Next Great American Decade to Come" (available on Amazon), Verge predicts a world where the US enters a mild recession in 2017 but leads the world to a period of prosperity in the next decade. He says, however, that a Trump presidency would ruin it all! Verge goes out of his way to state that he is not an economist. He is an electrical engineer with an MBA, but has a unique way of creating simple models to explain complex economic situations. To explain his vision he blends all these models into what he calls 'Deflation Sunglasses.' If you put them on, you will be able to see prices well into the future, and prosper appropriately.
