I'm genuinely curious what makes people - whether you're a Trump supporter or not - think that this is going to last. I'm all ears.
An economic stimulus from a debt financed tax cut rigged towards the wealthy that was rammed through in two months time, coupled with large scale deregulation. Deregulating is easy. Kinda like how Hinkie tore down the Sixers roster to tank. Easy. Anyone can tear things down. Building for the future with sensible policies that foster harmony between economics and the social good is far more difficult.
If the past is any indicator, federal tax cuts are followed by short term economic gains, but they're never sustained and taxes need to be raised shortly after. And this tax cut is unprecedented in nature. I'm not impressed yet - I'll give Trump some credit for the short term economic boost but really it's to be expected following a tax cut. If the growth is sustained 3 years from now, I'll give him a lot of credit. Some expert economists predict that the growth with slow back into the mid 2% range in upcoming years, and some predict a recession by 2020. I guess we'll see.
