Nations like people throughout history face dark times, where in they must choose between what is easy and what is right. US presidential elections have brought the flag bearer of open market economy and crusader of capitalism to this strange cross road. A nation of immigrants now wants to protect it’s economy from outside influence by applying extensive taxation on imports. The country which has always depicted itself in popular media as people who solve global problems both military, economical and enviournmental now wants to go into the shell of isolation. Jingoistic phrases like “Making America Great again” and “America First”, while do strike a nationalistic chord lack vision and knowledge of what has actually needs to be done. Right now, USA is tilting towards easy, which may have the following sequelae: Militarily: i)Loss of trust among allies which have provided USA with extensive logistics and support network augmenting strike capabilities and establishing USA as the military leader ii)Once trust deficit crops in, the intelligence network will suffer making American installations vulnerable, iii)loss of allies means loss of captive military markets which supply billions of dollars, which in turn affects general American GDP, iv) Impetus for Russia and China to occupy the vacuum. Economically: i)Loss of cheap labour which in turns increases operation costs and makes American goods uncompetitive ii) Counter tariff imposition on American goods, which will harm exports, iii) Reduced innovation and competitiveness in internal market. To truly make America great again needs deeper introspection rather than knee jerk reactions.
