MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have announced their economic plans and both say their plan will spur economic growth. But at the end of the day their plans may not matter.
According to AUM economics professor Kevian Deravi Alabama's infrastructure is important to take advantage of any economic growth.
Deravi says whatever economic plan a presidential candidate may have, it will take years to implement. He believes any proposal will likely look much different
after having to pass through the legislature.
Both Clinton and Trump say their plans will help promote job growth and help the middle class, but the actual impact is a guess.
"You cannot really assume you know all the ins and outs of what the future may bring. So a lot of this is just conversation and promises and whether it can be delivered or not...I believe 50 percent is luck," Deravi said, "And 50 percent is more luck."
