In Response To: Re: tariffs and the market... ()

I Read your initial post. It was clear . Trump`s motive is a Trade Deficit, I am aware of of 500 Billion dollar speech. Any lag in this country`s economy was never anything related to unfair trade, So that is a "ain`t broke" scenario and i will take the view of an Economics professor with a dose of history. We are currently bailing out farmers with socialism subsidies to endure this and the consumer is next to break already with confidence down and GDP weak. Trade wars were engaged at the early onset of the Great Depression, Republican initiated with Smoot Hawley and the genius now is a guy who bankrupted a Casino. I guess i am an aphid.
