As i write this, Donald Trump has just accepted the nomination as Republican candidate for the US presidency.

Now Trump is certainly a controversial figure and i am not going to give my  view on his suitability to be president – if for no other reason that, here from the U K, making any judgement is difficult

I am though interested in whether he will have any effect on US productivity – positive or negative.

He seems to appeal to a disaffected and disillusioned working class.

If they feel they are are at last being listened to, will they respond with greater engagement, greater enthusiasm for their work roles – ands greater productivity. Or will they soon find they have been sold a false promise and be ‘turned off”.

O f course all of this assumes he is elected – and that is far from certain.

i will be watching with interest – as will most of the world!
