The Creative Cost of Trump's victory

Ever since Trump “won” the US election, there have been speculations on how the event might impact the economy, ranging from “trickle-down” growth created by aggressive tax-cut, less regulations, tougher trade agreements and a general “business-approach” to government.

Little has been said though, about the paralysis that has affected the most creative minds in the country could not digest that November 8 electoral upset. Sure, the 60+ million idiots that voted for Trump are delighted, but these people have little impact on dynamism of the nation except for their own consumption.

What's been the cost to the Nation's GDP in the last two months in terms of lost or delayed creative ideas, inventions, entrepreneurship and positive initiatives? I'd say between 2 to $300 billions. What's your guess?
