By Scott Adams Posted February 11, 2018 11:50:46It seems as though the 2016 election has been a referendum on our country’s future, with Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders declaring themselves the winners of their respective races and Donald Trump losing to Hillary Clinton by a landslide.
The American Conservative magazine’s annual review of business is an annual survey of the country’s best-known and best-selling books, films, and other products, and is a rare opportunity to see what the country is truly about.
In the 2016 edition, America’s bestsellers were:Trump: The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump, by Michael Lewis and Simon & Schuster;The Art of Being President by President Trump, David Boaz and Simon and Schuster.
The review also noted the bookstores and libraries that are still going strong after the 2016 presidential election:Amazon.com: “The Book Thief” by Mark Twain; and Amazon.com Books: “Greed and Generosity” by Carl Icahn, by Mark Z. Danielewski, and Simon&Schuster.
Barnes & Noble: “How to Run a Good Business in 2018” by John D. Rockefeller III, by John W. Whitehead, and HarperCollins Publishers.
It seems that American business owners are still taking advantage of the opportunity of a Donald Trump presidency to create a new economic and political reality for the country.
The 2016 American Conservative review concluded that “the 2016 election proved that the economy is not fixed.
That’s not a fact.
It’s a fantasy.
But it’s not just fantasy: it’s an illusion.”
The 2017 review also looked at the impact of the election on business:The American Conservatives editorial board is the voice of the American conservative movement, which has taken on an even more prominent role in the political discourse.
We are not an academic publication.
We do not have a political agenda.
We have no agenda other than to be conservative.
We don’t see ourselves as representing a particular ideology.
Our main focus is the well-being of the conservative movement.
Our members, our supporters, and our advertisers are our primary customers.
Our 2016 review of Trump: The Real Deal was published online, on January 30, 2018.
In its final chapter, titled “Trump and the ‘Beltway Bubble,'” it wrote, “The election has brought to light what was once hidden: the American economic crisis is not about a bubble in the economy, but a bubble of political and ideological extremism.”
The American conservatives concluded that the Trump administration’s agenda was not about promoting a “free-market” or “small-government” approach, but rather a “conservatives’ agenda that seeks to strip away what little economic stability and social justice remain in the country and to return it to the wealthy.”
Their 2017 review of Bernie Sanders: Our Revolution by the Vermont Senator is a more in-depth look at the political revolution that Sanders has built up over the past two decades:The 2017 American Conservative Review editorial board has long been a strong voice for conservative values in the American political system.
In 2017, the magazine named itself the “voice of the Republican Party,” and it is a voice that the American conservatives take seriously.
We believe in the principle of limited government and a free market, and we will continue to advocate for those values, even as we confront our own political and economic realities.
The American Conservatives’ 2017 review concluded, “We’re not going to change America, we’re going to evolve.”
The National Review, a conservative magazine published by the conservative Heritage Foundation, is the most influential publication in the world for American conservatives.
In 2015, it was the magazine that coined the term “Never Trump.”
