Neither Trump nor Clinton has a clear plan to produce good, well-paying private-sector jobs

A couple of weeks ago I heard the best one-sentence summary yet of the 2016 election.
“This is the year politics caught up with economics,” Seth Harris, a professor at Cornell University, said at a conference I attended in Washington, D.C.
He’s right: In 2016, 30 years of economic chickens—the result of globalization, free trade, immigration, and technological innovation—have come home to roost.
Problem is, neither Donald Trump nor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a clear plan to produce good, well-paying private-sector jobs in the years ahead.
