In the end all will pay more for goods

"When we raise a tariff in general on steel, it means all the industries that use steel to make things, like cars and refrigerators, will see their cost go up, and they will pass those costs on to consumers,” he said. “So, consumers will end up paying a higher price for cars and refrigerators.”

HUH???????????????????????

I just copied and posted an article regarding the affects of Tariffs and you come out with this, which I don't understand???? Its not my quote it is from an article on YAHOO oh GREAT ONE

As for my batting average which LS keeps quoting. For you people not in North America or South America and come to think of it Japan/Korea (something the Yanks left behind) this is the manner how baseball keeps track of how a person is progressing at bat, hitting the ball 1.000 is great .100 is awful

""phony outrage and hypocrisy" as for this once again and maybe you will understand better this time "I DO NOT CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

MAGAnomics Benefits Mostly Middle-Class

Source: CNBC

Strong economic driver that translates to optimism.
The recent jump in paychecks has come with an unusual characteristic, as workers at the lower end of the pay scale are getting the greater benefit.

Average hourly earnings rose 3.4 percent in February from the same period a year ago, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report last week. That’s the biggest gain since April 2009 and seventh month in a row that compensation has been 3 percent or better.

What has set this rise apart is that it’s the first time during an economic recovery that began in mid-2009 that the bottom half of earners are benefiting more than the top half — in fact, about twice as much, according to calculations by Goldman Sachs. The trend began in 2018 and has continued into this year, and could be signaling a stronger economy than many experts think.
When the truth roars like a Lion, even MAGAnomics deniers have to eventually report it.

CNBC is different than most biased media and their parent, NBC. CNBC has a responsibility to viewers who look to them for financial advice. CNBC is mostly, very reliable.

U.S. heavy equipment makers feeling pain from tariffs, disputes:

U.S. makers of bulldozers and other heavy equipment are raising prices, losing sales and in some cases beginning to trim workers in response to the Trump administration's protracted trade disputes with various countries, according to a new report.

Credit Suisse raises S&P 500 forecast, sees 20% gain for 2019

Source: CNBC
Underneath the stock market’s epic rebound has been a “more favorable” trend that Credit Suisse says will drive the market higher.

The bank dialed up its year-end forecast for the S&P 500 to 3,025 from 2,925 previously. The new outlook calls for a gain of more than 20 percent for full-year 2019 or more than 7 percent from current levels after the big rally to start the year.
Cheerleaders for Failure not happy. Again.
“More specifically, less hawkish comments from the Fed, declining inflation and recession fears, and the potential for a resolution to China trade issues are the primary forces driving volatility and spreads lower, and stocks higher,” he added.

The market has staged a strong comeback with the S&P 500 up 20 percent from its Christmas Eve low when it dipped into a bear market on an intraday basis. Many have credited the massive sell-off to fears of a too-aggressive Federal Reserve and a possible recession. Now with the central bank signaling a “patient” approach to tightening and better-than-expected economic data, the rally may have more room to run.

Car sales 2019 a prime indicator regarding the economy

Said Jeremy Acevedo, Edmunds’ manager of industry analysis, “Although the drop-off in sales is rather subtle year over year, February is shaping up to be a good barometer of the gradual sales decline we expect through 2019.” He added, “We’re really starting to see a slump in retail demand that stems from the growing cost of new car purchases.”

What is behind the slip then? “Record-high interest rates and rising average transaction prices are what’s really putting pressure on the market and keeping car shoppers at bay so far in 2019,” said Acevedo. Going forward, these are the factors that will make the greatest difference."

Trump Immigration Policy Raising Wages

Source: NY Times

Optimism.

The crackdown on illegal aliens has created a labor demand and increased wages -- even for farm hands.
Without a legal alternative to informal migrant labor, the competition between dairy farms to retain migrant workers is so fierce that farm owners, once notorious for underpaying and mistreating workers, are now improving working conditions and wages to entice employees to stay on their farms, workers said.

Victor Cortez is an immigrant who has worked on a dairy farm in western New York for 18 years. A few years ago, farm owners “wouldn’t let us leave the farm,” he said, adding, “They wouldn’t pay us as much as they promised they would.”

“But the good thing about it now,” he said, “is that we get paid more and this farmer is good to me.”
The US labor market has been flooded with illegals for decades, which has lowered wages for Americans and contributed to a stagnant economy. Trump's policy is having a great impact nationwide in all sectors of blue collar and middle class jobs.

AMERICA FIRST. HIRE AMERICAN.

STILL STEADY DAMN WINNING.

AMERICA FIRST. HIRE AMERICAN.

The only way for wages to be supressed is if the EMPLOYERS are hiring Illegals on a consistatn basis. How could this be in a FREE S0CIETY in a society that Makes America GREAT AGAIN

If they stop hiring Illegals along with Tariffs, increasing wages. prices for the American Consumer will surely increase .
Mathematics all this will increase inflation making the consumer one unhappy hombres

Get ready for the slide

Ford To Invest $900 Million for New Electric Vehicle Plant In Michigan

Source: CNBC

GM with inferior product is shutting down plants and laying off workers. They haven't learned any lessons since their bailout and costing taxpayers $11 BILLION in losses from that GWB/Obama boondoggle.

Ford, on the other hand, is laying off thousands of workers in Germany and investing in AMERICA.

AMERICA FIRST. HIRE AMERICAN.

The Automotive Industry Financing Program — which was created under the Troubled Asset Relief Program — provided $79.69 billion to GM, GMAC and Chrysler. So far, they have paid back a little more than half of the money, or about $40 billion, according to Treasury’s daily report for Sept. 16 on TARP funds.
Ford did not receive any money under AIFP, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get any federal assistance.
In a Jan. 30, 2009, report on the bailout program, the Congressional Research Service noted that Ford “is counting on $5 billion from the DOE loan program to support a $14 billion plan to reorient its lineup toward more fuel-efficient vehicles.” On June 23, 2009, the Department of Energy announced it would provide $5.9 billion to Ford “to transform factories across Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio to produce 13 more fuel efficient models.”
In a business plan submitted to Congress in December 2008, Ford touted its $14 billion plan for fuel-efficient cars as a key part of its effort to turn the company around — noting that a big piece of the funding was coming from the DOE. The company’s business plan also urged Congress to pass legislation to provide “incentives for consumers to trade in older vehicles and move to more fuel-efficient vehicles.” About six months later — on June 24, 2009 — President Obama signed the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act that became known as the cash-for-clunkers program. A Department of Transportation report (table 10) said more than 90,000 Fords were purchased under the cash-for-clunkers program — second only to Toyota — as of December 2009.


So Ford did receive aid in 2009 CASH FOR CLUNKERS (FORD) Great name for a program

You love conflating unrelated issues. And yes, I know YOU DON'T CARE.

It's important to readers that factual information is provided to fill in the gaps in your purposeful misrepresentation of events to necessarily cast them all as negative.

The Department of Energy program was a LOAN. Ford was not begging for a bailout (GM and Chrysler). Loans and bailouts are quite different. The DoE and other agencies offer loans and grants to the private sector in order to help them comply with new congressional statutes and fuel efficiency standards.

Cash for Clunkers was a failed Obama program that rewarded consumers in auto purchases of a new auto of THE CONSUMER'S CHOICE. Those Fords that were purchased were chosen by consumers, not funneled to Ford by the government.

Despite any negatives, which accompany many different makes and models of automobiles all over the world, Ford is still the #1 US auto maker in the United States.

It should also be pointed out that in the bailout of banks by GWB/Obama globalists, even healthy banks were forced to take bailout money by Obama. You see, healthy banks would have an unfair advantage over unhealthy ones, so it was important to hide that fact from consumers. Yeah, let's hide it. Once again, the Obama War on Success and Achievement.

The Department of Energy program was a LOAN.
And that loan gave rise to one of Lee Iacocca's most famous statements when he was handing over the check repaying Chrysler's TARP loan:
At Chrysler, we borrow money the old fashioned way. We pay it back."
