Re: Who wins the trade war??

Remember back when democrats were supposed to be the friend of labor and the environment?  They decided they would get more reliable votes from immigrants.  Farmed out the blue collar middle class to china, hosed the lower class entry level by giving their jobs to immigrants, and took a my back yard position on concern for the environment.

And remember when the Republican party was the "Party of Lincoln" but sold itself out to draft dodgers, prevaricators and woman abusers.

 

For any honest American it would seem to be  disastrous to one's reputation to be a Republican.

Sad state of affairs isn't it.  Who could have imagined someone like Donald Trump would be the lessor evil.  And yet a corrupt Republican party and a more corrupt democrat party and there you go.

They have always been beholden to the chamber of commerce which should be re-named the chamber of cheap labor.

It's how the NFO operated. They would trick their neighbors into dumping their milk on the ground to get the price up. Then their cows would come fresh and they made good money.

Trade uncertainty has risen to be the biggest risk for corporations, according to the latest CNBC Global CFO Council quarterly survey. To that point, 35 percent of global CFOs say U.S. trade policy is the biggest external risk their company faces, up from 27 percent in Q1 and tripling from the 11.6 percent who cited trade policy in the fourth quarter of 2017.

It is going to be a tough six months

Amid strong gross domestic product and job growth and profit-friendly corporate tax cuts, nearly 65 percent of North American CFO respondents said U.S. trade policy is likely to negatively impact their firms over the next six months; 20 percent of CFOs indicated the impact would be "very negative." Sixty-six percent of Asia-Pacific region CFOs expect a negative impact on their firms.

What this proves is you don't care about man made global warming or rivers burning as long as they burn in China.
