Q: Is Trump bending over on China already?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/f6fb3fcf-faab-3f0a-80c7-4d33c407fa14/schwar...

 

Not just this, what has he done to address the trade imbalance with China?

He could simply match what tariff China puts on American goods and be 100% in the right.

Trade inbalance? Interesting. How many people here are buying Trump's simplistic notion of "balance"? It's not such a simple matter of equal tariffs. Tariffs are imposed for numerous political and economical reasons and it is too complex to reduce it down to a positive or negative number as Trump is doing for his dimwit followers. Anyone here have a masters in international economics AND an official capacity in government with access to the revelent data and intelligence? No? Then you really don't know what you are talking about.

It could be that he's been busy with all the other stuff going on... the FBI investigation, the Obama care thing, the wall, the travel ban, his golf score.... he has been pretty busy lately.

 

Or, it could be that he has 'seen reason' regarding the Chinese matters.

Don't forget, China recently granted Trump 38 trademarks,paving the way for a lot of potential business for him in China.

 

Or maybe his aides just pointed out to him how mutually dependent China and the U.S are on each other and the potential minefield he could be walking into if he stirs up trouble with China.

i think American companies are already pivoting to India, regardless of what Jackass happens to be president, so in a decade this will all be over in China.

The OP's thinking is rather simplistic and flies in the face of economic reality.  Should Trump slap a 100% tariff on Chinese goods, it will be the American consumer who will see a 100% increase in the price of these goods.  The United States is totally dependent on Chinese manufacturing.  American industrial production has been hollowed out over the last fifteen years and hardly anything is 100% produced in the United States.  Trump neither the intelligence nor the ability to grasp any issue that requires more than three minutes of thinking.

Marcos can't read: "He could simply match what tariff China puts on American goods and be 100% in the right. " 

Who said make the tariffs 100%? 

If America simply matched the tariffs that would make it slightly more expensive to produce in China. Enough to make it attractive for companies to produce in America. Newspapers reported a couple of years ago that the cost to make Iphones in America would increase the price by far less than 20%, so do the math. 

Speaking of math, on what planet does sending your consumer dollars and jobs out of the country improve your economy????????? Do you even know how the economy works? And very few things are 100% produced anywhere. We're talking about final assembly

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
