Dr. Robert Shiller in an interview with Bloomberg discusses the short and long term impact on the market if Donald Trump gets re-elected.
He's right there. Some 500 billion dollars goods in the market. Are long term investment. President Trump even to gets reelected is a short term event. But nevertheless. Market confidence is starting to rollover from that record high as the S&P which is higher. The white line in the new. Survey to see how many responded a stock higher over the next month the blue line which is the S&P Standard questions need to understand investor psychology. Luckily we have it right with us now Robert Shiller Yale University professor of economics and 2013 of old and Dr. Robert Shiller is the cocreator Shiller index that U.S. house prices and author of The New York Times best selling book on investor psychology irrational exuberance you joined us now from Yale University.

How does that play out to where we are today. Well you know. Donald Trump. Is an expert on narratives.

Kind of an infallible genius or a very simple genius who I think he put in. Trying to get them out that people think he might be right. I don't think independently.
