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%.

Re: Isolationist, Buy American, Trumps Tariff war

The trade wars are working wonderfully to cripple another as U.S. Steel plans to lay off hundreds of workers in Michigan with this round displacing 1,545 workers.

Re: Isolationist, Buy American, Trumps Tariff war

When is a tariff war not a trade deal with a winner is a trade deal that is less than a deal.... Initial US China trade deal has major hole Beijings Massive Business Subsidies

This is the same war that is ending in the same manner.
