Jan 8, 2019 | 18:12 62 Pars enjoyed your post and I think it is spot on. Here is a question. My son does concrete finishing as a side line. 10 mm rebar was $4.95 a length back in the spring, today that same length of rebar is north of $8. As far as I know this is a Canadian made product but the suppliers blame the increase on steel tariffs. This is over a 60% increase and makes no sense to me. Can anyone explain this to me?

The same goes for the 100 wall steel square tubing that goes into cattle feeders/panels. Many of it stamped made in Canada. The way it was explained to me by dealer from supplier was that the tarriff agreement between Canada and US states that suppliers in Canada could not sell Canadian product to Canadian retailers at a reduced price from what was charged to US buyers and create a price gradient between the countries, incentivizing US buyers to buy directly in Canada at cheaper prices. If this were to happen, US would cut off steel and aluminum imports from Canada completely. Reply With Quote

If I was Volvo, I would want to sell lots of cars to the top two countries in the world with the most millionaires... USA and China. They do. And have for years.

China doesn't have a strong car-manufacturing industry.

If I was General Motors, I'd want to send a steady stream of cars to China, now filled millionaires, and a growing upper middle class. After all, China has a population of *one-billion-four-hundred-and-nine-million people* !! . So, I'd drool.

But GM has been paying a 25% tarrif, a problem, which is a specific China-US problem, so I'd like to get it lowered, and I'd jump at the chance to meet with Trump as soon as he was elected, b/c GM can't directly negotiate tarrifs; only the US Govt can.

Aha. GM met with Trump. At a big public roundtable, with the media invited, soon after Trump was elected. I watched it.

And now, coincidentally, tarrifs are on the table. I watch new US jobs-numbers are popping up like mushrooms across the US in every industry. Do you suppose car manufacturing will ramp up?

The tarrif saving issue is not not a huge ca-ching today, but what if the Chinese started to buy more GM cars? And tarrifs we're lowered. And US car jobs jumped. Hmmm. Just a thought. A plan? Oh. It's probably nothing.


I have observed to never underestimate the ability of Trump to plan. His plans fills the requirement for Americans to expand their industries. He's a caring human, and he loves the USA, and he's working hard towards providing jobs for those who have depended on welfare. He works as if he's a man on a mission.

Im probably imagining things. It's a woman thing. Pars Reply With Quote
Jan 9, 2019 | 20:59 65 You deserve a D for delusional. Trump only cares about Trump. China will build their own cars and they will be electric. Trump cares so much about America ,he had a podiatrist fake bone spurs to get out of the draft. He has never created anything except for misery for everyone he has scammed. Reply With Quote
