2017: More questions than answers
With the historic come-from-behind political victory of Trump and the overreaction of the liberal media to every move our president makes, 2017 should be quite a year. I am hopeful with our 3 branches of government, change will be slow, but necessary. It will be interesting to see if the Keystone Pipeline moves forward and what that does to our energy dependence on foreign oil. What happens if Trump cuts back regulation? Will we see fewer automotive recalls? What impact will that have on consumer protection? What is the balance? With proposed changes in FDA will we see new experimental drugs faster into the market? If Dodd Frank gets repealed what does that mean for the banking industry? Will we see credit rules loosening? Will tighter immigration laws really impact the labor market or is this an overreaction? What about the Affordable Care Act? It’s not so important that it may be repealed, but what will its replacement look like and will it really be better? Lots of questions in 2017, but uncertainty breeds opportunity. 2017 should be a very interesting year. Buckle up.
