So predicts Kevin M. Bronner, a public service professor at the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy. Bronner also forecasts that new President Donald Trump will have a positive impact on the U.S. economy if taxes and government regulations are reduced, but said it will take six to nine months to see the effects.

Bronner was interviewed by John S. Kiernan, a senior writer and editor for Evolution Finance, the parent company of the personal finance website WalletHub. Kiernan’s interview with Bronner was published on the site last month.

Bronner earned his Ph.D. in Public Administration in 1992 from UAlbany, where he has been a professor since 1997, teaching microeconomics, governmental accounting, regulatory administration, public finance, public budgeting and strategic planning.

He also had a long career as a financial analyst with the New York State Public Service Commission from 1970-2003, involved with auditing large electric and gas companies. He’s worked with the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission on compliance audits and at the New York State Consumer Protection Board on utility issues.

Bronner was among 10 experts interviewed for the WalletHub article, which can be read in its entirety here.
