Trump set to announce plans for summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping to reach an end to trade war


President Trump may announce as soon as this afternoon plans for a personal meeting with Xi to end the two countries�� year-long trade dispute. A final deal has not been reached, but negotiators are close. It remains unclear whether the United States will cancel, in part or in full, the tariffs imposed last year on more than $250 billion of Chinese imports.

The meeting could go well. Tyrants like them seem to find common cause when they get together.

Trump says he will increase tariffs on Chinese goods on Friday as he complains about pace of trade talks


In a pair of tweets, the president said he will hike tariffs on $200 billion worth of imports to 25 percent from 10 percent. Trump had twice before postponed the scheduled increase to allow negotiators to seek a comprehensive deal. His threat increases pressure on a deal that Trump said has been going ��too slowly

More than meets the eye?

I'd wager trade talks involve cutting off N Korea even further after another volley of missle launches.

China Tariffs and the Stock Markets

This is positive restructuring. I’m tired of policy being dictated by these little Wall Street wimps instead of the real economy investors. That which actually produces things. The markets are vastly overvalued anyway, at historic highs in price/earnigs ratios, and driven by a glut of money in the world.

Much of that is Chinese and brought on by the gargantuan balance of trade surpluses with the West. They are awash with Western currencies that are chasing real estate, stocks, and, the Belt and Road transportation infrastructure. And bumping prices to a point that are no longer affordable to domestic buyers (as in Real Estate in Vancouver). We are being held hostage by Hedge Fund Managers and Programmed Trading Algorithms for economic policy that benefits only a small cabal of international financiers and stock traders.

Free Trade has been catastrophic for the developed economies. In fact it has been disastrous for the emerging economies as well. It exports all of their product produced at subsistence wages that enriches only supranational trading and finanancial oligarchs.

It is directly responsible for the hollowing out of American (and Canadian) industrial might and integrity. It is also responsible for setting up these desperate, squalid, Free Tade Zone Maquilladora slave colonies in those developing economies.

I see the line of the Liberal Media is that this is a ‘tax’ on American consumers, ignoring the fact that Free Trade is a race to the bottom. It represents an encroaching impoverishment of the Middle Class. That is the real ‘tax’ on the American centre.

So i applaud Donald Trump for not being held hostage by Wall Street, and their liberal media, globalist and academic Free Trade running dogs.

A whopping 84 percent of all stocks owned by Americans belong to the wealthiest 10 percent of households. And that includes everyone's stakes in pension plans, 401(k)'s and individual retirement accounts, as well as trust funds, mutual funds and college savings programs like 529 plans.Feb 8, 2018
Wow. 90% don't have anything beyond social security or company plan for retirement or equity income?
Stupid bastards. $5.75 for a daily latte but no money to save?
