 Does It Really Matter If Trump Or Clinton Wins? A Recession Is Already On The Horizon

There are always two sides to the argument, especially in economics and politics.

Consider for a moment the likelihood that either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will assume the presidency at a time of record stimulus measures, not only from the U.S. Federal Reserve but from central banks across the world. Does this really backstop or prevent any threat to the economy?

Sven Henrich,’s founder, was a guest on CNBC on Friday and offered the opposing side of the story.
