Trump's spending won't save US workers or world economy

Tech will steal more jobs, while stock booms will bypass a battered middle class

| China

As world leaders wonder whether Donald Trump will launch trade wars on China and Mexico, undermine NATO and aggressively antagonize much of the Muslim world, it has become increasingly clear that the poor state of the U.S. economy should concern outsiders almost as much as the new president's ill-defined foreign policy plans. The United States is still home to the world's largest consumer market, and Donald Trump is likely to stimulate growth. But that won't solve the U.S. economy's underlying issues, and that's a problem for the entire global economy.
