the United States between President Donald Trump’s administration
and the Republican Party over the president’s economic plans.
Trump’s key economic positions during his campaign included his
opposition to free trade deals, his promise not to cut Social
Security and Medicare, and his support of large-scale
infrastructure spending. These are all positions that have "nofollow" href=

. They
were also the reason that some Bernie Sanders supporters found
themselves nodding in unexpected agreement with Trump’s proposed
policies.

We can bring one key insight to this conversation as the battle
lines are being drawn. It is extremely difficult to speak of the US
economy as an undifferentiated whole. The US has varied economic
interests at both the regional and state levels. This makes it
extremely difficult to find a one-size-fits-all policy that can fix
every problem.

This is not only true for the US—almost all large countries (and
even some small ones) are highly regionalized. It is also not to
say that national economic statistics are useless—they can be used
to make important observations about the overall performance of a
national economy, especially in terms of the economic power of a
given country. But too often, discussion of the US economy focuses
disproportionately on the national level and not enough on the
regional.
