I'd give you two likes if I could for bringing up that gem of a songI agre with that.
The economy can be what Management Theory calls a "Hygiene Factor". A "Hygiene Factor" only kicks in negatively.
When deciding to go to a restaurant, you will rarely consider its hygiene record - unless you hear they have been fined by the Health Inspectors. That might influence your decision quite a bit.
Sometimes the opposite of negative is not positive, but neutral.
"Economy insecurity" as a cause of Trump's election has been pretty soundly debunked. And it would be a mistake to think the economy is great for everyone uniformly, especially in the gig economy. A song by the Drive-by Truckers says it all:
'Another Joker in the White House
Said a change was Comin' Round
But I'm still workin' in the Walmart
And Mary Alice is in the Ground'
In fairness, he would still be in Walmart no matter who was President .... but decent Health Insurance might have saved Mary Alice.
