The Great Trade war of 2018

China should devalue their currency rather than retaliate with tariffs.

This will make US even more expensive and undo the impact of the tariffs


#515

Canada is going to be pushing more trade with Asia now.


#516

Volley!

They will come to the table any day now.

China’s leaders are not stupid. Trump has way too many irons in the fire to win a multi-front trade war on top of everything else.

Fighting with the 1st and 3rd countries you export the most to at the same time is stupid.


#525

Absolutely. And they have the ability to play the long game here too. We see political life in 4 year increments. They look 10, 25, even 100 years down the road.


#526

Heck right now the political fight is news cycle to news cycle and some days that cycle is hourly.


#527

All seems to be going swimmingly on the home front


#528

■■■■■■ welfare queens. Joke.

I’d feel really bad for them if they weren’t Trump voters, but they asked for this, so.


#532

I call them “gullible”:

But he is a reality tv star who talks about how rich he is and for years right wing media said successful business men would make a great president.
