Yeah, those protectionist, nationalistic, vaguely enterprise-friendly Republicans are incomprehensible.

Just what the hell is Abraham Lincoln's school of economic thought?

American School. High protective tariffs and subsidies coupled with internal improvements. Basically the same economic philosophy as Clay and, earlier, Hamilton.

Oh yeah, 100% in agreement. That's the correct answer to my sarcastic, rhetorical question. Which I actually thank you for posting, since I'm not sure people actually would all know about this.

I'd also like to note Trump loves "infrastructure" too. Makes it amusing when people call him a Jacksonian, because Andrew Jackson would HATE him.

After reading your post the second time over I now see the sarcasm. I'm pretty bad when it comes to detecting it over text, so my bad

The comparison between Jackson and Trump was always superficial and mostly based on the fact that they both ran "populist" campaigns championing the "common man" over "the elites". Any resemblance ends there

Elites used to be nationalist and hierarchical conservative, whereas the common man was individualistic, egalitarian and classically liberal (to an extent).

This thread is a sign of how pervasive and successful the media’s attempt to redefine ‘traditional conservatism’ to include being staunchly pro-free trade etc. has been.

Protectionism is historically a conservative position.

Not just the media, but academia as well.

Basically it's the "We-disliked-big-government-up-until-white-people-started-to-need-welfare-and-now-we-want-to-eat-the-elites" school of thought.

Nationalist economics, it's the economic thought of right-wing nationalist parties throughout Europe (Le Pen, Wilders, Danish People's Party, The Finns, SD and elements of the AfD

I am specifying nationalist and not populist as the progress party in Norway and UKIP have more traditional economic views.

But all of this is irrelevant because Trump's economic thought is not being put into action (apart from protectionism) due to people in his cabinet.

I agree. Generally very protectionist, which any economist can debunk, and slight de regulation. Not sure what school that is

The Voodoo School of Reaganomics*. At least, on tax policy.

*University motto: Maximus Vectigal Pro Reditu Est Nil Taxatum.
Revenue is highest when taxes are zero.
