a brief illusion of recovery in the U.S., the world
economic crisis is getting accentuated. Trump administration
would rather increase its fiscal deficit, if at all

by falling global wages. Such policies, paired with
hostile protectionism, would make correcting over-production
and hence overcoming world crisis, almost impossible.
