C-suite experience can be just as irrelevant to real Main Street animal spirit as government bureaucracy experience.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
Sir, Gillian Tett discusses the respective government and C-suite experience statistics of different government teams, and comments that those “83 years of C-suite experience” of Trump’s team and some of the policies announced, like tax cuts, “could ignite animal spirits”, “Team Trump unleashes animal spirits” January 6.
Sorry, the “animal spirit” of an extraordinarily very well paid C-suit manager, the owner of a golden parachute, and who is invited to a great restaurant by a banker willing to discuss a billion dollar loan for the purpose of repurchasing the shares of the C-suiter’s big corporation, can have as little of any real Main Street animal spirit, than any government bureaucracy lifer.
“Risky” SMEs and small time entrepreneurs, those who have their bank credit applications most often rejected, now most specially because of the risk weighted capital requirements for banks, those are the ones who really need to be present on Trump’s team, if he is ever going to have a chance to deliver on his popular populist promises.
In fact, C-suit managers could be too dangerous, since these are quite likely those who would be engaging the most in crony statism… in other words ”The Real Swamp”
