Swiped, unchecked factoids:

Obama’s economist is Austan Goolsbee, a brilliant Massachusetts Institute of Technology PhD at Chicago Business School and a valuable source of free-trade advice over almost a decade

Mrs Clinton’s campaign boasts of no professional economist, rather her trade advisers are pro-union, anti-globalisation --from the Economic Policy Institute and the AFL-CIO union federation.
