A week after the death of Donald Trump, there’s still no sign of his administration’s anti-capitalism agenda.
But the Trump administration has begun to implement its vision for a “free market economy” on a more serious basis.
The first big step is a new “National Commission on Corporations,” which will be chaired by the secretary of commerce, Wilbur Ross.
The commission is part of an effort by President-elect Trump to make corporations more accountable for their actions and that will include the removal of many of the barriers that have kept corporations from meeting their fiduciary responsibilities.
Ross will also appoint a senior adviser to the commission, the same person who led the Justice Department’s probe into Wells Fargo and the bank’s actions.
In addition to the corporate-free-for-all, Ross will have a wide-ranging task force on economic issues, including what he calls “economic policies that are designed to create more jobs and to grow the economy,” which include a tax on Wall Street speculation and a plan to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
He also has a plan for a national infrastructure bank, which is aimed at connecting states with money from the federal government.
But Ross also is taking a hard look at the “entitlement society,” which he sees as a “disaster” in a country that relies on its “free enterprise system.”
And, most importantly, Ross is looking for ways to cut corporate taxes, which are currently the highest in the world.
This is the first time the president-elect has brought up the issue of corporate tax cuts, which has been a major focus of his campaign.
“Our corporate tax rate is the highest it’s been in our history,” Ross told reporters at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in late February.
“If we can get the rates down, if we can bring down our corporate tax, that’s great.
But we also need to do everything we can to reduce taxes for Americans, and we will do everything to reduce our corporate taxes.”
The Trump administration is already pushing to eliminate a lot of the regulations on corporations.
Earlier this year, the administration announced that it would repeal a regulation that required companies to report the full value of employee stock options and dividends.
The rule was a huge boon to companies such as Pfizer, which made an estimated $4.7 billion in profits last year by issuing stock options to its 1.2 million employees.
The Obama administration also made some big changes to the way corporations pay their workers, which have resulted in a sharp increase in CEO pay.
While the U.S. corporate tax is currently at its highest level since World War II, the Trump team is already proposing a tax cut of up to $5.5 trillion.
Trump has said that his tax cuts will generate $2.4 trillion in additional revenue for the government, though his tax plan includes no details on how much money that will create.
He has also proposed a doubling of the estate tax, which would raise more than $1.5 billion annually for charities and education.
A new administration in the White House could also lead to an increase in the minimum hourly wage, which currently sits at $7.25 per hour.
The minimum wage has been increasing by a few dollars an hour in recent years, with some cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC, raising the minimum to $12 an hour this year.
That raises the question of whether Trump will be able to deliver on his promises to increase wages.
“The question that we need to ask is, can we really get wages up to that level in the coming years?” said Rachel W. Brown, a senior fellow at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who studies corporate tax policy.
“In fact, if you think about it, the minimum has gone up by a lot in the last few years.”
