  • How will Trump Change the Chinese Trade Imbalance?

    Trump was right about our leaders making bad deals. It got worse under Obama.

    http://www.idealtaxes.com/post3097.shtml

    Any thoughts on how Trump will make the Chinese more import friendly and less demanding of intellectual property?

        Up here in the PNW(Salish Sea) we have a very deep water bay, requires no dredging, where there were plans to build a bulk dry goods shipping terminal near the refineries here (Cherry Point). Along with coal, it would have exported grain and potash(?). The greenie/environazis went up in arms akimbo at the thought of a coal terminal here and the increase in railroad traffic and with money from Tom Steyer and caving by the Army Corps of Engineers it looks blocked and maybe a dead deal for now.

        Dirty evil coal you know.

        Meanwhile the usual(prior) coal train traffic rumbles through here up to Vancouver B.C. where it does get shipped out via a less efficient and less environmentally friendly terminal.

          Well, I am not for sure that Trump will do anything that he says he would do. Do you seriously think he will work on the trade imbalance?

          I believed him when he said he was going to Lock Hillary Up, I believed him when he said he was going to build a wall, I believed him when he said he was going to deport ALL of the illegals—

          Here are some of his flip-flops since he won the election.

          Can we, dare we believe anything the man said while campaigning?

          Will we just have to wait and see what sort of leader we, as a nation, have taken up as President?

            I am 100% convinced that he will do something about the trade deficit with China, I'll bet money on it.

              Maybe if it will benefit his businesses or his family—if it won’t I wouldn't bet on it.

                Personally I don't give a Shiete what he does or doesn't do, he defeated the hell hag and preventet a liberal to be nominated for the SCOTUS and that's all I care about, other of what he does doesn't concern me personally , I have lived thru Carter, Clinton and Obama with no change in my life.

                  Dump coal on the world market while pushing natural gas and nuclear at home. Europe doesn't need US coal but China does. That will wreck their domestic production while making the US energy independent since Chinese solar panels will be a non-commodity in the US.

                  If the Chinese energy sector goes down, and their energy prices suddenly shoot up after a decade of that, they're hit.

                    Jannie, please, Politico and Huffington?
                    They have had nothing fair or even honest to say about Trump since the second he said "I'm running", and you think they will start now?

                    Not saying ignore what Trump does, far from it. But don't allow those parasites to get you all flustered and depressed, that is their fondest wish.

                    My suggestion; keep an eye on Trump and use Reagan's maxim; Trust, but verify.
                    And when he falters, burn up the phone lines (forget Emails, those just get deleted) and raise hell in any other way available. Remind him that his actions must match his words... especially if he really wants to be a different kind of President.
                    We don't do fawning adulation and believe every cover-up, that is for Democrats.

                    And meanwhile, relax. There is still a month to go before he even takes the job. No actual actions are even possible yet.

                        Will he do something? Quite likely. Will it actually be beneficial? That is the real question.

                          If the Us sells coal to China for cheaper than the Chinese can dig it then both China and the US will gain. That's how trade works.

                            Make our own stuff right here in America. Any time proprietary technology is made overseas, it's ripe for theft.

                            Part of manufacturing in China is to hand over the technology, which makes it an automatic loss.

                            Frankly, it would work better to bring a few thousand Third Worlder's to America, put them in a Chinese type factory compound, and let them do the work right here, and then send them home when not needed.

                              The problem is, that China gets used to buying US coal and reduces their home mining of it. If the US concurrently moves away from solar (in particular) and Chinese PV panels are no longer mass imported, then that industry shrinks in China too.
                              Then in a decade or so, you jack up the price of coal and watch China flounder around trying to restart their coal industry. Mining as a global resource extraction generally goes through boom and bust periods. The thing the US should do is try and influence when those happen in resources they have an abundance of with those they have political rivalries with.
