Few countries around the world expected Donald Trump to become the 45th president of the United States. It's sent shock waves around the world and the global marketplace has responded, says Tomas Hult, Byington Endowed Chair and director of the International Business Center in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.

But Hult urges investors not to panic.

"The implications for the global economy and global business partnerships, as well as the global mindset of people, will be chaotic in the short-term but will likely stabilize relatively soon," he said.

Hult is one of the world’s leading authorities on international business policy and trade, international business, marketing, global supply chains and complex multinational corporations.
