This is for the dumbasses who think trade wars are easy to win and tarrifs are a "beautiful" thing.

Oh...also for all those morons who think this is zero sum game.

Trump Has Gotten China to Lower Its Tariffs. Just Toward Everyone Else.

China increased its retaliatory tariffs hitting US exports on June 1 in response to President Donald Trump’s latest escalation of his trade war. Yet, this action is only half of the bad news for US exporters. The other half is that China has begun rolling out the red carpet for the rest of the world. Everyone else is enjoying much improved access to China’s 1.4 billion consumers, a fact that has been little noticed or reported in accounts of the US-China economic confrontation.[1]

While Trump shows other countries nothing but his tariff stick, China has been offering carrots. Beijing has repeatedly cut its duties on imports from America’s commercial rivals, including Canada, Japan, and Germany.

Trump’s provocations and China’s two-pronged response mean American companies and workers now are at a considerable cost disadvantage relative to both Chinese firms and firms in third countries. The result is one more eerie parallel to the conditions US exporters faced in the 1930s.

Another important implication of China’s action is that Americans are likely suffering more than President Trump thinks due to his trade war. Inflicting such punishment on Americans may be one factor motivating China. A separate motivation may be that it is trying to minimize the harm to its own economy by importing vital goods at better prices from other parts of the world.

Just our resident expert on virtually everything. She's suddenly discovered something we've been telling her all along, and she's acting like Madame Curie over it.
Hopefully she'll get the same overdose Madam Curie did....

You mad Bro?
China has GOT to be angry (Tranny is mad - you know the difference between mad and angry, right?). They have worked very hard to get our food, and their tariffs make it hard to feed their people. Now that they don't buy our food so much, they have to feed them somehow, so they lower the tariffs on other nations that can't sell them what we can sell them (that's why they had to go with so many nations). They had to lower the tariffs on the other nations to be able to afford to eat, what with their lowering economy based on not selling us so much of their products.

You're the one who thinks they're easy, slap nuts.
Not the only one. Perhaps all you folks should tell the guy who started this mess.

But in the long run, that doesn't bode well for American farmers, particularly soybean farmers, who will lose their biggest customer, does it?

Nope. Do we do well for soybean farmers at the expense of the rest of the country? What is the big picture here?
