The Hottest Election Yet
The 2016 election has taken the media by storm. The heated contest between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump has generated more interest in this election than almost any election before. Although rhetoric and vitriol have taken up headlines the policy differences, especially on economic matters, will take center stage after November 8th. Brad Reifler, one of America’s top investors, believes this election will shape the economy of America for years to come.
The Certainty Of Taxes
A key area of differences between the two candidates is on taxes. Hillary Clinton wants to create a more progressive tax plan centered around increasing the tax rates of the wealthiest Americans while Donald Trump wants to cut taxes and simplify the tax brackets. While the tax plans of both candidates are filled with changes there is a stark contrast in one particular area estate taxes.
Hillary Clinton wants to keep the estate tax but Trump wants to do away with it altogether. Instead of an estate tax he would increase the capital gains tax and offset it with subsidies for small businesses. There is one issues both candidates agree on. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both support tax breaks for child care.
The election is bringing lots of interesting minds into politics but Reifler is an exceptional case. As one of the world’s leading entrepreneur he knows just how the President can change our economy. Hence why the media is reaching out to Brad Reifler for expert commentary.
He has spent years working in the finance industry and has a strong understanding of how major events will shape financial markets. It isn’t surprising that he has decided to examine the current election and reached this particular conclusion.
