You know what the elephant graph is and you've experienced Neo-liberalism's negative effects on economies, both here and abroad. In the following interview economist Mark Blyth discusses such topics with Jimmy Dore along with how President Bill Clinton "finished the house that Ronnie built":

For Corporate Democrats Why Not Blame Mr. Carter? He Builds Houses, Too
In February 2016 I posted the Carter Inauguration 1977 horoscope and mused that Rule by Corporate Democrats (can be) timed by Carter Inauguration 1977, an event which occurred, of course, earlier than the Clinton presidency, the implementation of NAFTA, Clinton's near gutting of New Deal social safety net programs meant to aid the vulnerable in our society, and other reforms that "finished the house that Ronnie built."
In the Carter Inauguration horoscope you'll see a Fixed Grand Cross--well, actually, a rigid T-Square between a Moon-Saturn opposition and an angular, exalted-in-Scorpio Uranus, the radical zealot. For a Grand Cross pattern to be made the Ascendant (13Tau44) must be factored into the T-Square with the ASC being the presidential Oath of Office, and thus, the president.
Why, 1977's depressive Moon-Saturn opposition across the self-willed Leo-Aquarius polarity (in the 4/10 security/parental axis) is quite enough to foreshadow difficulties to come (hindsight being what it tends to be). An urge for financial security is identified by the deep-pockets planet of corporatism, Jupiter, in materialistic Taurus in 1st house, plus, Jupiter's codified religion is suggested. Yes, protective Jupiter rises yet a disturbing transit was underway at the time in the chart's 6th house: Pluto to US natal Saturn (14Lib48) which suggests an unstable period when structures, traditions, and lifestyles were altered and shifted and could be totally transformed by circumstances. For the people: a depressed economy and a much-mocked president; for the ruling elite: major financing via corporate donors' payrolls and slush finds, and globalism on the rise.
It didn't help that the 1977 inauguration Prenatal Eclipse occurred in the 29th degree of Libra (a critical-crisis degree) and in the 15 North Saros Series which is all about commitment. Curiously, 15 North is also the Prenatal Eclipse (PE) of Mr. Obama's second inauguration in 2013 and also manifested in 1994, one of the Clinton years and the one in which NAFTA came into effect.
Now each presidency is a continuation of basically the same globalism policies of the last president so if 'new boss same as old boss' comes easily to mind, it's because in America the saying perfectly applies every four or eight years (that's Washington on the Venus Cycle). Is 'new boss' Mr. Trump any different? In some ways, on some levels, perhaps so. And no, I don't mind how he inconveniently says out loud what the powers behind the throne apparently don't want said in public. My fret is that his odd Uranian way of doing things and causing chaos is just what power elite globalists ordered for finalizing their world war agenda and global domination plan because to them, Mr. Trump is little more than a mouthpiece blabbing from the White House. North or South.
To set up a natal horoscope for NAFTA, try this data provided in Nicholas Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes: "NAFTA took effect January 1, 1994 at 12:00 am est Washington DC." And it still sucks.
