Re: Isolationist, Buy American, Trumps Tariff war

SpaceNut,

It looks more like infinite human stupidity from where I'm sitting.

Edit:

In case the point isn't clear, I''m talking about both GM's management and the UAW.

Edit #2:

The UAW strikers made $1,220 per week working for GM, but they're now on strike, during which time the UAW pays them $275 per week.

I've no clue what they're fighting with GM's management over, but we drive 2 GM cars and spare parts are reported to be drying up.

Trying to keep this topic Tesla on the rise - good for Space X and the Starship from going the wrong way as Tesla Selling China-made Model 3 With Autopilot for ~$50,000.

Hopefully thats a cheaper price but its going to come with a bit of a problem since there is a war going on for you know who....

Trade war is now having an effect on Texas, Caterpillar lays off 120 workers as trade war hits sales

Sales in Asia-Pacific, its third-biggest market, fell 13% as Caterpillar faced falling demand in China and competition from cut-price domestic rivals, while revenue in its main developed world market in North America fell almost 3%.
