China / USA trade wars heating up again

Jun 1, 2020 | 07:37 1 China just announced a cut back to USA soy and pork imports amid new trade wars. This is over US trying to nose in on China’s take over of Hong Kong. Reply With Quote
Jun 1, 2020 | 07:44 2 When either side is afraid of lobbing the first bomb or shooting off the first missile, have to resort to other forms of warfare. Reply With Quote

They have to get it somewhere, ....enter Kazakhstan. Reply With Quote

and Brazil . . . and Argentina . . . and continent of Africa. The U.S. is no longer in China’s long term game plan (IMO). Phase One deal was flawed from the get-go . . . . Reply With Quote

    china is importing from SA at a higher cost than they can source US product. They do that because they have huge investments in the industry there. The one fly in the ointment is that those investments have been made with borrowed $USD. Last laugh is USA. Anyways if I were the president of the US, I would keep the tariffs on chinese products in place and otherwise ignore china except where they directly threaten US interests. china will fade away slowly.

    I agree, after this virus outbreak consumers world wide will back away from products made in China as much as possible.

    Sad thing is it drops the standard of living down for the working population, never the members of the communist party.

    Those members all have trust funds too. Reply With Quote

    Sounds eerily like Canada .
    Let’s hope it does not get to that point here Reply With Quote
    Jun 3, 2020 | 21:11 11 Forbes.com has just released an article entitled: ‘Phase One Deal Looks Mighty Dead’

    China has not met its obligation with the U.S. and the key benefactor has been Brazil. China has apparently bought 35 percent more from Brazil in May 2020, than May 2019. These shipments are primarily ag and fuel. And these shipments obviously come directly out of the hide of the U.S.

    China now accounts for 40 percent of Brazilian exports in May. And according to Forbes, the Phase One is now as strong as a wet noodle. And as for a Phase two Deal . . . according to Forbes ‘dead on arrival’. Couldn’t agree more of this assessment. The repercussions of tariffs have come-to-life . . . . Reply With Quote
