G7:Meeting and Understanding the Structure of Generational Waste

Yes of course! Merkel (Germany), Macron (France) and Trudeau (Canada) should be unsettled by President Trump wanting to carve-out a new trade structure, after all, since the end of World War II, the U.S. has bent-over backwards to resuscitate these Post-War Economies. The problem is that although the injection of inflationary monetary policies may have awakened their capabilities it will never, on its own, keep them alive and these Heads of State, and I’m speaking specifically of the EU and Canada, need the U.S. to help keep their social experiments, their Corporate Elite afloat. The Opposition-Press, by its insistence that the President has somehow offended our Allies, has once again injected its signature hyperbole into an issue it is ill prepared to intelligently discuss, for now however let’s leave it at this: One must understand that the public friction demonstrated by Ms. Merkel and Mr. Trudeau is not over national (public) interests but Corporate Financial/Economic Interests. In effect what the global-elite has accomplished is to have imbedded a fiat monetary policy concealing within it an incrementally expanding global trade policy built on the theory of comparative-advantage, the idea that some States perform certain things/tasks more effectively than others, ignoring the fact that this notion on its own serves to imbalance the equation whilst ignoring the fact that there are certain components of the “viable trade equation” that must ultimately achieve balance if they are to work; as it is (presently) we just blow them up and call it a recession/depression. Think of it this way: the U.S. may have an exemplary capacity for consuming things however for the scheme to work if it must also have a self-multiplying capacity to offset the drain, the ability to produce wealth from which it draws funds from to pay for its consumption, it doesn’t of course and therein lies the problem. In short order, nothing you are told that works the way it should works at all!

Buy American-Hire American

Strange how a concept such as this must be sold to Congress and to the American People; one would think this an obvious concept.

Far worse is that the U.S. Congress, specifically the Senate, is the greatest offender of all as you need only review the various Trade-Agreements the U.S. Senate has signed-off on.

Being ignorant is no defense for being complicit or cannibalistic. Still, like most errors, this mess can be fixed, but it will require a significant reformation of the U.S. Tax Code and lowering Corporate Tax Rates is simply not enough.

Trump Shelves TPP

As a tool for encapsulating China, in practical terms, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a paper-tiger and China has long-proven itself selective as to its devotion to international law; for the Chicoms piracy is a practice not a prohibition. As a consumer of U.S. Jobs, TPP is no immediate threat. The U.S. Governments suspension of domestic job creation was previously accomplished thru the implementation of the GATT/WTO, NAFTA & CAFTA Treaties.

Trump Tie Talk; a Clintonian Hypocrisy

Taking a bite out of Trump has become quite a show and why not, for a businessman turned presidential candidate he’s a veritable cornucopia of targets. In his world, where success or failure is deeply personal and carries with it a particularly steep gradient, consequence is inescapable and it matters in ways the Political Spore rarely if ever faces; ever.

In business when you fail it’s immediate and personal whereas in the Political arena, when people die, go bankrupt, programs fail or go grotesquely over budget you simply change topics while the consequential scaring persists and simply becomes a part of the many before that are now anonymous.

The Forgotten Novelty of Global Hillary

At some point over the last 30 years I committed the following phrase to memory: “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” Whether the phrase is appropriately attributed to Dale Carnegie, Mary Wollstonecraft or Samuel Butler is its own challenge, nonetheless its message is the overriding point; it’s tough to re-convince an individual who remains convinced, and yet this truth is by no means an obstacle keeping me from attempting to do just that.
