How Do Globalists View the Trade War?

The U.S. and Chinese governments have made their views on the ongoing trade wars clear. The U.S. insists that China is breaking all the rules and China insists that they will not allow the U.S. to dictate the operation of their economy.

What about the global elites? They are watching from the sidelines since the nationalists are in charge in both countries. But what is their view?

This article is written by two of the leading global elites. Their analysis is entirely conventional and mostly wrong. They argue that U.S. consumers will suffer from higher tariffs since tariffs act like taxes on consumers of imported goods. They also argue that slower growth from reciprocal tariffs may result in a U.S. recession.

This simple analysis ignores how dynamic global markets are today. Many U.S. importers lack the ability to pass cost increases along to consumers, so the costs of tariffs are actually borne by importers in the form of reduced margins or have to be absorbed by the Chinese exporters.

Supply chains are flexible. Goods not produced in China can be produced in Vietnam or Indonesia, resulting in lower tariffs and permanent loss of exports for China. By moving supply chain origins and not passing tariff costs to consumers, the actual impact of the trade war on the U.S. economy could be quite small and not nearly enough to induce a recession.

At the same time, gains from new U.S. manufacturing needed to replace some Chinese exports could actually boost the U.S. economy. The complaints in this article are the same misguided economic nostrums the elites have been peddling for decades.

Trump is the one who is following in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton and Henry Clay when it comes to protecting U.S. jobs and U.S. industry from overbearing foreign competition.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation. The latest Trojan horse the elites are riding to take your money is climate change. The climate does change over long periods of time for reasons that are not well understood except that they

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
