Tariff Fearmongering Proven To Be Just That

Source: US Department of Labor

Tariffs have been in effect as far back as 13 months ago. Consumer prices have not been affected more than 1.9%. Consumer budgets are not under strain.

The Cheerleaders for Failure keep saying it, but that doesn't make it true; and it's not reality. The headlines and stories predicting failure were in the news for the past year and continue to warn that we're all gonna die from tariffs.

The Trump Administration said the predictions are wrong and believed the tariffs would have little or no effect on a US economy that is self-sustaining and does not rely heavily on imports.

Prices have NOT risen as predicted. That doesn't stop the Cheerleaders. Now they're predicting that it will happen later. Reminds me of the Trump-Russia collusion and Man-made Climate Change -- moving the goalposts.

More than a year has passed. The Cheerleaders have not been just dead wrong, but damn wrong.

Auto price increases are no more than 1% higher. Even technology items like phones, televisions, computers and appliances have only seen a 1% increase in a year. Actually, prices on televisions have been sinking. Those prices fell over 4% -- eight consecutive monthly declines. Total television price decline over the past year? DOWN over 19%. Computers and related hardware are DOWN over 3% in the past year. Phone prices DOWN over 14% in the past year. Even toys made in China are DOWN over 7%.

The Cheerleaders are still WISHcasting. Hoping for failure, but the facts are the facts. At some point, there may be a negative effect on Main Street, but it's not here. Consumers are NOT being hurt by the tariffs.

The burden of the tariffs may very well be on the foreign producers and the middle men, but it's not on consumers.

Yes, once again, brigadiers will not be happy. They ignorantly hope for the failure of the world economy.

OMG! The G20 is admitting what I have been saying all along about international markets! What happens with the US can have an impact on all of their economies.

G20 Wants US Cooperation, But No Free & Fair Trade In Return

Source: Reuters

The globalists are on the march against Trump and the US. They loved the stupid trade policies that past US administrations allowed to happen at the advantage of other countries around the world. How dare Trump change that to make it fairer for the US!

Trump wants reciprocal trade -- totally free trade -- and he has used tariffs to get to that end game. But EU G20 Globalists don't like fair and free trade. They want to maintain the unfair advanatages.

Basically, the supposed allies want to continue to block imported products from the US. They want to be able to keep selling their automobiles in the US at low tariff rates, and they demand that the US join all the phony, hoax, ginned up MMCC baloney.

That isn't even remotely close to ending Trump's plan for tariffs, and it tells Trump that the EU isn't interested in free and fair trade.

Globalists turn their noses up at those upstart Patriots from across the pond, sneer and leer. Then they cry about how the leading economy in the world -- the US -- is leaving them behind and has the nerve to look after its own interest with trade.

REALITY STINGS.

Countries and people with the money to invest are coming to America -- either physically or through investments in the stock market. They LOVE capitalism when it is allowed to move unfettered and successfully for all who wish to take advantage of the great benefits. MAGAnomics is spurring global investment in the US. And the thing that is killing the globalists who sneer and leer is that Trump is renegotiating trade deals. Bilateral trade deals, and the globalists don't like it.

While this meeting of elitist governments convenes in DC, US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin is just sitting there watching the tantrums.

The G20 is worried about "global imbalance" -- except for trade. Damn hypocrites. Like all LIBs, they want equal outcome. Equal opportunity isn't good enough.
The EU is expected next week to give final clearance to the start of formal trade talks with the U.S. that could lead to the removal of duties on industrial goods and ease transatlantic tensions.

However, those talks face a series of hurdles, not least the U.S. insistence that market access for its farm products feature in the negotiations, something the EU has ruled out.

Germany, whose exports of cars and parts to the U.S. account for more than half the EU total, wants to press ahead with talks to ward off tariffs for its car makers, including Volkswagen, Mercedes maker Daimler and BMW.
In other words, the globalists want to keep screwing over the US in trade, and the US should help them with everything they want and need. Trump won't be amused.

Kudlow 'optimistic' on China trade deal

Source: CNBC
Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Thursday that he is “optimistic” about striking a trade deal with China.

I’m going to play it from the optimistic side,” Kudlow said at The Hill’s Newsmaker Series event in Washington, D.C.

We’ve made good progress. I don’t want to predict. It’s gotta be a great deal,” he added.

The Trump administration has been in intense negotiations with China over a trade deal to lift a bevy of tariffs and grant the U.S. greater access to the Chinese market.

Kudlow said the deal would have to address structural issues related to intellectual property and technology, among other issues.

On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC that the two sides had agreed on an enforcement mechanism in the talks.

“We’ve pretty much agreed on an enforcement mechanism. We’ve agreed that both sides will establish enforcement offices that will deal with the ongoing matters. So this is something that both sides are taking very seriously,” Mnuchin said.
Optimism over Pessimism.

No one will be signing any trade deals with the Orange Kleptocrat. Even if the conman could broker a major deal which stood up to legal scrutiny for the first time in his life, the expectation is that he and many of his cabinet will be prosecuted for corruption in the future.
Anything associated with this administration will be tainted and probably investigated and invalidated.
The EU and China are just spinning the wheels until a legitimate government is in place to do business with.

US Trade Deficit

Source: Bureau of Economic Analysis
The U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis announced today that the goods and services deficit was $49.4 billion in February, down $1.8 billion from $51.1 billion in January.
Reuters:
The U.S. trade deficit fell to an eight-month low in February as imports from China plunged, temporarily providing a boost to President Donald Trump's "America First" agenda and economic growth in the first quarter.

. . .

It sounds like pencils are being sharpened in order to revise up first-quarter GDP forecasts.
The deficit was primarily caused by a $3.1 billion decrease in the deficit with China.

Little to no inflation in the US economy is more evidence that Trump's tariff initiative for the world to move to totally free and fair trade is working. US consumers on Main Street aren't being affected.

Cheerleaders for Failure still dead damn wrong.

STEADY DAMN WINNING.

Why do you keep posting all this rubbish.

The trade deficit with China fell because it was Chinese New Year in February.

China basically shut down for 2 weeks in February hence no exports as previously pointed out to you and you agreed after you posted an article only showing half the story as usual.

. . . rubbish.

. . .
Only because you don't like the results.

The Chinese New Year has some effect on trade. Everyone with some understanding of international trade acknowledges that; but economists have pointed out that it has never been as severe as it was this past February. I pointed that out before when you came in screaming bloody murder.

Have a great rest of the week, pal52!

Pal52 he The One who walks on Horse Manure is now professing that he understands whole heartedly the economics in International Trade and I for one believe him as he said it and therefore it must be true.

But I like it when you only see such words as "Everyone with some understanding" well I am part of Everyone and I certianly didnt understand it until I researched it . I asked my daughter and stepdaughter aslo part of "Everyone" and they didnt know either. But once again that is how insecure people want to put you on the defensive declaring that if you dont know you must be ______

You know what to do with rubbish and that is to place it in the bin at the side of the road for pick up

Another Tick to the total
