Fallout of Trump Election Regarding Personal Finances

Professor Wolff, America is reeling with the results of the presidential election. I have heard you talk about how this can be viewed as a natural outcome of our capitalist system. What I am interested in is your views on how the Trump presidency might effect our personal economic wellbeing. By that I mean the effects on our retirement accounts, investments, home and other real estate values, employment and career opportunities, and so one. I am 62, a carpenter, with an IRA, some thoughts of investing in rental property, and two young adult children whose future I am concerned about. With Trump ascendant, I feel completely unprepared for what may lie ahead. I realize Trump is a huge cypher, but assuming he governs like the authoritarian or neofascist he campaigned as, what does history tell us to expect?
