An economy flourishes off the productivity of the people.

 

No president can force the people to be productive.

 

However, a president can easily stand in the way of productivity and hinder economic growth by bleeding off and wasting the fruits of labor.

The president sets the tone.

Much like a coach on a sports team.

The players play, but the coach sets the tone as well as teaches the Xs and Os.

The President can push policies that help or hurt the economy, environmental regs, for instance. Do the new regs on coal fired power plants increase the cost of producing electricity? I would think so.

That money has to come from the electricity users. Unless your boss is generous enough to give you a matching raise, you have less money to spend.

A President can make an economy, and the economy can undo a President.

A president has an indirect positive effect on the economy thru leadership (if he has any leadership qualities)



A president can have a direct effect on damaging the economy when he pledges to veto any attempt to balance the budget.



A president can have a direct effect on damaging the economy when he unilaterally pumps taxpayer dollars into pet green projects and green companies that are not ready to stand on their own and subsequently go backrupt. He can damage the economy even more when he makes deals with his investor friends to allow them to get paid ahead of taxpayers when those green companies enter bankruptcy proceedings.
