    are you sure that's why?
    He used to disagree with all that, but he's tempered his position to get this gig. A very principled guy except when he's not. I'm watching him right now and he's ranting about provinces in China being unfair to companies that want to outsource there.

    I think part of what Kudlow is going to do is sell bank deregulation to Trump's base with his "free market" street cred.

    He's exactly how you think he is.
    Yeah, that kind of personality would be pretty hard to fake.

    Kudlow is what a Fox News viewers thinks an economist is, he is not an economist of any standing nor does he have the chops to run a national macro economy. Sorry, the guy is to economics what Trump is to business, a con man.

    I've got to say, for as much as Trump complains about the media, he sure has hired a lot of people he's seen on cable news.
    I give him less than a year, but while he's gone, perhaps I'll watch some CNBC.

    That makes him a perfect choice for Trump.

    Was Kudlow previously at Fox 'News'?

    Have no idea, my point was the mob that listens to Fox and thinks Trump has the highest IQ in Presidential history is likely to believe that respected economists of world standing think Kudlow is an expert. He is not. He is merely a personality, like Jim Cramer, who talks about money. Kudlow goes for the Wall Street banker look, pin stripes. Kramer goes for the laid back quant look. Both are full of it.
