Alan Auerbach … said some of the ideas Trump floated during the speech could boost economic growth and potentially grow wages, but it would depend on how the tax changes were designed and structured. He also said it would depend greatly on whether the tax plan would add to the government debt. Trump didn’t mention his plan’s impact on the debt or the deficit during the speech. “It’s hard to have a consensus about a policy about which you know very little,” Auerbach said.
