The Latest Man From Goldman

Looks like Trump found another Goldman Sachs executive in the swamp. What to do? Put him in charge of the National Economic Council.

President-elect Donald Trump is expected to name a top Goldman Sachs executive, Gary Cohn, to lead the National Economic Council, handing the Wall Street veteran significant sway over his administration's economic policy.

The council includes the heads of various departments and agencies and works within the administration to coordinate economic policy. As director, Cohn would be in position to advise Trump as he attempts to fulfill some of his chief campaign promises, including lowering corporate taxes and rethinking U.S. trade policy.

Apparently he is dyslexic. Kudos to him for making it so far despite the disability. It may help in understanding Trumponomics.
