David Stockman: ‘The Trump Tariffs Will Send Economic Harm Cascading Downstream’

"Needless to say, the Donald's un-varnished, un-vetted and un-shackled thoughts whims on most any topic are a thing of considerable disruptive potential. But when it comes to trade, his mind beats to the sound of a drummer not from this world or even possibly the next."

    If you’re not a prepper now, you will be!

  2. Never a safe bet to assume rational responses from an irrational source but the tariff approach makes sense in a twisted way. This is a shot at Canada and NAFTA. He is looking for a hammer to use against Canada in ‘negotiations’ Softwoods didn’t work so saber rattle here. His way or punishment. Of course it doesn’t hurt in his mind that China is watching him be tough. Not saying it is a good way to treat friends, a winning approach, or even rational (you have treated me unfairly so I am going to shoot both of us?) just that it is consistent with his approach. He wants to kill NAFTA without being blamed for the negative fall out. So put Mexico (wall) and Canada (Alum) in unacceptable positions.

    He’s very good at dumping where he eats.
    “Why did you sting me”, said the frog to the scorpion.
    “Because that’s my nature” said the scorpion, as they both drowned.

  4. VLAD must be dancing with glee in Moscow as POTUS single-handedly (with help from Wilbur Ross, evil genius wannabe) destroys America’s place in the free world.
