Q: Who will win the trade war?

I can see both sides here... and I sort of agree with Trump.

But who will win?

Trump To Announce $200 Billion In New China Tariffs As Soon As Monday

Trump plans to announce new tariffs on up to $200 billion in Chinese goods as soon as Monday in a move that will prompt an immediate retaliation from China, and may lead to a sharply lower futures open on Sunday night.

Should have done this the first day in office and the dust would be clear now and we could move on to other problems.

From watching US news and Trump rallys, it is clear that most trumpsters think the tarrifs are something the Chinese Governement have to pay the US Government. They have no clue that it is the importers who pay it. And ultimately the consumers. Its a stealth tax.

Interesting times

 

So China can't ship a car into Canada and put one bolt on the car and then import it to America to avoid tariff and import laws anymore.

 

The parts 75 percent must be made in Mexico,US. and Canada.

 

45 percent of labor must be above 16 dollars an hour for the workers, this will raise wages in Mexico to keep people from migrating and increase labor taxes to all 3 governments.

 

Not a great deal, but certainly a good start.

And now its escalating to grey bathtubs on a pond.

Couple of things here.

I am not against trade protectionism, and I agree with the tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminium. I suspect rare earths are not tarriffed.

Trump is doing this the wrong way. Its the companies that outsourse that should be targeted For example, raise the cash repatriation tax instead of reducing it. Or do the minimum wage thing that they have just done for NAFTA automotive trade. Excellent idea.

I have always been a great believer in the socialist concept of a company having a world wide minimum wage. Who would have thought Republicans would agree.

But imagine if all foreign companies had to pay a minimum of 15 bucks an hour here. Imagine the bribary and corruption to get such a job.

Interesting. It seems the anti big government crowd are heading left.

No need to click the link to get the meaning... right wing is for high minimum wage.

I thought it was a bernie bill that shamed Bezos.

Anyway. The Trump admin wants mexican workers paid 15 bucks an hour, Bezos will pay American workers 15 bucks an hour...

Will Chinese Amazon suppliers follow?

Good result if they do.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
