Formalization of Trump Inc.
Posted on March 27, 2017
Is Ivanka planning to open a display showcase in the White House, or will her office be limited to finance, marketing, and industrial espionage?
Her security clearance will come in handy for the last-mentioned activity.
What’s interesting about Ivanka’s role is the absence of any real pretense that she has a non-commercial role. The planned merger of the US government with Trump Inc. is now being formalized.
I had long feared the degeneration of American democracy into corporate feudalism, but it seems to be moving faster than I had anticipated. Perhaps we could set up a formal bidding procedure to determine which corporation gets to run the White House for the next four years.
