Spring 2018 Market Commentary: What Is Given Can Be Taken Away

The good, the bad and the ugly of tariffs.

President Trump’s actions and policies have driven the markets, particularly of late — both up and down. New domestic tax policies boosted prospects for growth in the U.S. economy and gave cheer to the equity markets. However, Trump’s new trade policies have taken the punch bowl away – causing the stock market to stumble.

In the Spring Market Commentary, “What Is Given Can Be Taken Away,” President and Chief Investment Officer Reed Murphy provides a brief history of tariffs in America, discusses their intended purpose, and argues they most often create winners and losers.

In addition to a rich discussion on tariffs, the commentary also offers insight into fiscal policy, national debt, and what might lead to a recession.

These are just a few of the topics addressed in the Spring Commentary.
