Imagine what would happen if China respond to Trump’s threats by significantly curtailing its “Made in China” exports to the USA. It would be absolutely devastating, disrupting the consumer economy and creating economic and financial chaos.

In June, Washington threatened Beijing with a sanctions regime, in response to China’s increased bilateral commodity trade with North Korea. Initially, the US sanctions were not intended to be against the Chinese government: selected Chinese banks and trading companies involved in the financing of China-DPRK commodity trade would be potential targets of US reprisals.

  1. It would hasten the economic decline of the US and it’s allies even faster.

  2. It seems pretty obvious to me, gerard. I wonder why it never occurs to Trump and his cronies.

    I’m imagining – and smiling 🙂

    The issue is that it’s a two way street. The U.S. would be in trouble but China would also be affected as well. And cost to both economies wouldn’t be good. Besides, where would Tubularsock get his share of plastic?

  5. Well, Tube, I’m pretty sure the thriving export markets China has developed in Russia, Iran, Turkey, Africa, the EU, Australia and New Zealand are nearly large enough to absorb the loss of the USA as a market. Especially as US consumers simply aren’t gobbling up Chinese plastic the way they used to. You could always come to New Zealand for your Chinese plastic – we sure got plenty of it here. In the US I was always used to having metal couplings for garden hoses and sprinklers but they’re all plastic here.

      WE SHALL ALL GLOBALLY SANCTION EACH OTHER TO DEATH. IT SEEMS TO ME, THAT ALL OF THESE SANCTIONS ARE A PRELUDE TO WAR. AS AN AMERICAN HERE, I AM SICK AND TIRED OF JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN AND MOON TOO MADE IN CHINA. MOST OF THEIR PRODUCTS ARE NOTHING, BUT A BUNCH OF JUNK. THEY MAY MANUFACTURE WELL FOR THEMSELVES, BUT LITERALLY SEND JUNK ABROAD; THE ONLY EXCEPTION THAT I WOULD MAKE IS TRUMP’S DAUGHTER (IVANKA) SLAVE FACTORIES IN CHINA. TRUMP GETS GOOD, THE REST OF US GET JUNK. I REMEMBER GROWING UP AS A CHILD, WHEN THINGS WERE MADE IN AMERICA, THEY ALMOST LAST A LIFE TIME, NOW AMERICANS ARE MAKING MORE JUNK JUST SO WE CAN BUY MORE AND SPEND MORE MONEY. IS NOT LIFE A RACKET!!! I REMEMBER MY LATE PARENTS PURCHASING APPLIANCES AND OTHER ITEMS FROM SEARS, MADE IN AMERICA AND THEY WERE DAMNED GOOD.
