India Invests $500 Million In Two U.S. Steel Operations…

The passage of the defense spending portion of the Omnibus bill ultimately means there will be increased demand for U.S. steel and aluminum within new defense equipment. The contracts within the procurement process will predictably require the use of U.S. parts.

Add the increase in defense spending with the pending global tariffs on steel imports, and the environment is created for foreign investment in domestic steel and metal manufacturing…. Then add into the mix the geopolitical economic relationship developed between India’s Prime Minister Modi and President Trump… And you discover the backdrop for this announcement from India owned JSW Steel:

(Reuters) – India’s JSW Steel Ltd said on Monday it would spend $500 million to build out its U.S. operations in Texas, amid heightened global trade tensions following U.S President Donald Trump’s decision to pursue steep import tariffs.

The company has signed an agreement with the Texas governor’s office, under which the governor has approved a grant worth $3.4 million to the company’s unit, the steelmaker said in a statement here.

The unit, JSW USA, sells high-quality carbon plates to the energy, petrochemicals, defense and other heavy equipment industries.

The company will use $150 million of the funds to improve and modernize its plant in Baytown, Texas, while the rest will fund a new facility, it said.  (read more)

Remember, a key part of MAGAnomics is changing the investment dynamic where the ‘best play’ is to invest in the U.S.

The entire landscape of modern geopolitics is an assembly of various nations specifically focused on their economic interests.  Fundamentally, the economics of a nation is the cornerstone for their ability to hold, advance, influence and present their ideology.

Without the underlying economic capability to provide sustainability and stability, the nation, any nation, cannot maintain itself regardless of the underlying political outlook.  In short, as the old verse presents: “money makes the world go ’round“.  Everything boiled down to it’s essential core – is about economics.

The shock to the system of modern multinational financial interests was created by an earthquake known as Trump; which created a seismic shift via the 2016 U.S. presidential election outcome.

The tectonic political and economic shift was so unsettling to the global elites -who created a decades-long system of global financial interests- they have been thrashing around desperate to regain footing ever since.

All modern political alliances are based on this economic reality, and every single action taken by every member within each grouping is based on their affiliated and interconnected self-interest in the underlying economic equation.

At first, every nation positioned themselves to push-back against a realignment in geopolitical power based on the nationalistic economic shifting created by U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  However, as time progresses, and the clear strategy of President Trump begins to take shape, allies and adversaries have begun to accept that POTUS Trump is not going to retreat.  Access to a $20 trillion U.S. market is the biggest economic leverage in the world.

It doesn’t matter which continent you point to. If you pull back to the larger view and overlay the economic maneuvering you will find the reason behind the strategic relationship always revolves around economics.  War or peace, it’s all about the economics within the equation.

If you scale market economies on a linear continuum according to freedom (size of government in their economic market), and line up the individual nations as flags according to their political outlook on the same linear scale, you will quickly see how the groups cluster in both political ideology and similar economics. [Big government communist nations cluster together; big government socialist nations cluster together; and smaller government fair markets cluster together.] It has always been thus.

The scale of market freedom, in direct proportion to the wealth of the individual within each nation, is the one constant in an ever changing universe.

This is the essential issue with global trade agreements which seek to enjoin free/fair market nations within larger trade deals that also encompass more socialistic political forms of governance. It simply doesn’t work. Generally speaking the free/fair market nations get screwed because they are forced to acquiesce to the insufferable dictates -and rules- of the big government institutional nations. (TTIP and TPP examples)

President Trump has assembled economic SME’s (Subject Matter Experts)to deal with this geopolitical dynamic.  Each person specifically skilled to navigate this complex network of internal interests.  Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Trade Rep. Robert Lighthizer, AG Secretary Sonny Perdue, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, and more recently Trade Adviser Peter Navarro.

Each cabinet member has a role within the larger dynamic that is a policy of economic patriotism benefiting the U.S.A.

New trade deals are being negotiated; NAFTA (Canada and Mexico), Vietnam, South Korea, Australia, ASEAN nations, and then China and the EU [with U.K. coming as soon as Brexit negotiations are complete].

All of the currently visible political alliances, like those witnessed within the G20, are based on their positioning for these upcoming trade deals.  Every supportive or antagonistic expression by each of these nation states is directly tied to their positioning for trade leverage and negotiation with the U.S.

The MSM will sell visible and spoken differences of opinion, differences of political ideologies, and newly formed alliances around a narrative of nations being anti-Trump.  The media like to focus on the cult of personality to create their discussion segments; but that’s nowhere near the full measure of what’s behind international alliances. The actual motives are the underlying economic determinations within each nation.

It has been so long since U.S. economic power was used to the benefit of the U.S., there’s an entire generation that has no concept of this underlying reasoning for national friendliness, or lack thereof, toward each other.  We have given away so much national economic wealth many people have forgotten how to accumulate or compete for it.

The ‘We-Are-The-World‘ type leftist globalism (fair share economics) has been pushed for so long, that many people have completely forgotten what it looks like when nations look out for their own unique economic best interests, and actually strive to achieve them.

Heck, many younger Americans may never have seen the competition at all.

Economic competition, territorial economics, is what drives each nation to excel and innovate.  The unexpected aspect, buried by almost all media, is how President Trump is empowering all nations to reevaluate their trade status by confronting a global trade system that was diminishing sovereignty.

And the WINNING is the best part of M.A.G.A !

“KORUS”

      So please explain how a foreign country, India in this case, establishing a US based operation is different than, say China coming into the USA through the backdoor of Canada or Mexico?

      Is it not still a substantially foreign owned entity gaining access to the USA markets?

      • I am a true novice on this issue but here is my take: China was avoiding tariffs by using the NAFTA backdoor whereas India already has the facility in TX and is adding another one. Hiring Americans (my brother has worked for Smithfield Foods for many years – when China purchased the company, he did not lose his job – altho I question why we allow foreign countries to purchase American companies in the first place but that is another subject), contributing to the tax base in TX, presumably selling to some American companies. But what do I know? Not much on this issue, TBH.

            Why the ‘Local Multiplier Effect’ Always Counts

            The Local Multiplier Effect (LME) is a very valuable, hidden feature of our economies. The term refers to how many times dollars are recirculated within a local economy before leaving through the purchase of an import….

            History and Impact
            Over the past 50 years, the expansion of national AND INTERNATIONAL businesses into local domestic markets has diverted this vital monetary stream and redirected it to centralized corporate coffers OFTEN OUT OF COUNTRY. There it is spent on large capital expenditures, overseas goods and all too frequently inflated executive salaries. This interception of funds has depleted local towns and cities across our nation of an important source of funds: recirculated income.

            It has been estimated that about a century ago, thriving industrial communities had a LME in the high 20s or low 30s. Today it’s estimated to be in the single digits. This reduction in the number of rounds that monies make has had an extremely negative effect on our local economies. All areas of community life are affected by this deficit. This lost treasure of local economies was never measured, monitored, managed or even acknowledged.[…]”

China, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam apparently have the $$ because everything we’ve bought in the US for the last 25 years is made in these countries. The US has been paying exorbitant tariffs on these imports, while these countries are sending exports for practically free! Hopefully, these tariffs will help American companies run by American’s reopen business here, when it’s going to cost them more to manufacture in China, etc. and export back to the US.

        The difference is like night and day. Chinese back-dooring through third parties adds little value to the U.S. economy since you are dealing with a finished and, in some cases, intermediary product with negligible added value in terms of factors of production and its multiplying effect in the overall economy. The value of making this product remained with China in terms of the value of raw materials, labor, energy and capital. On the other hand, the investment by India in building and updating a steel mill adds value to our economy, from the capital invested into our country, to the domestic labor involved in making the product, the energy expenditure and the significant multiplier effect typical of manufacturing such as the upstream supply sources needed to manufacture a finished product. All of these variables in the India example increase economic output and wealth.

        I think much of that will eventually happen. I worked in National Works located in McKeesport, and right across the Monongahela River was the Duquesne Works. Both plants are now basically completely defunct. I’m not sure what could reopen them without major rebuilding, and some different operations have already moved into their former footprints. I believe that Edgar Thompson in Braddock, and the Clairton Coke Works are still operational, and maybe they can expand within their current facilities.

        We also have many opportunities for revitalization in Johnstown, PA, and Youngstown, OH. Homestead Works, PA has been completely razed and water parks, shopping districts, and movie theaters have replaced it. The former massive J&L plant just outside Pittsburgh is completely gone. I’m just not sure how many former plants could be rebuilt there now.

          My father was born and raised in Braddock during its heyday (high school class of ’49). He tells stories of how culturally and economically vibrant the region was back then due to the bustling steel mills We attended his high school reunion last Sept where they showed endless Braddock pics of the 30s thru the early 70s which confirmed everything my father told me. He worked in the steel mills there for years after high school and the Army.

          We got a tour from his nephew who still lives there. Very sad place indeed, extreme poverty and abandoned buildings falling down everywhere. The one relative bright spot was the beautiful old library built by Carnegie in 1889 that they are trying to restore (we donated to that fund after a personal tour by the head librarian). It was the first library built in the U.S. and so deserving of restoration. I was told there is only one steel mill left in operation and one of the furnaces in the other one (closed) is now a museum. Museums are great to remind us of our past but they do little to contribute to economic vitality.

          There are around 40 acres of vacant land in Johnstown PA where one of the largest steel mills in the world stood at one time. The land would probably come cheap and the area’s economy remains depressed.

          A few months ago Politico magazine published an article saying Johnstown Pa is the reason that Donald Trump was elected President. The once reliable Democrat voters here voted overwhelmingly for President Trump. Naturally the Politico article was a hit job on the people of this area, implying how stupid we were to actually think that President Trump cared about this town and it’s people.

          It sure would be nice if a large mill, or any type of large industry would locate here. Politico would then have to eat crow.

        The Rockefeller File by Gary Allen
        Published June 28th 1976

        “The master planners devised the strategy of a merger – a Great Merger – among nations.

        But before such a merger can be consummated, and the United States becomes just another province in a New World Order, there must at least be the semblance of parity among the senior partners in the deal. How does one make the nations of the world more nearly equal?

        The Insiders determined that a two-prong approach was needed; use American money and know-how to build up your competitors, while at the same time use every devious strategy you can devise to weaken and impoverish this country. [See Chasing the Dragon: Clinton’s China Policy for how Clinton implemented this plan. ] The goal is not to bankrupt the United States. Rather, it is to reduce our productive might, and therefore our standard of living, to the meager subsistence level of the socialized nations of the world.

        The plan is not to bring the standard of living in less developed countries up to our level, but to bring ours down to meet theirs coming up… It is your standard of living which must be sacrificed on the altar of the New World Order….

        Much of the spade work for setting up this ploy is being done by Henry Kissinger, who was a personal employee of Nelson Rockefeller for a decade before Rocky placed him in the Nixon Administration….

        FOLLOW the Rockefeller name and you find all sorts of dirt hidden under the rug like the connection between grandaddy SAMUEL BUSH and the Rockefellers or OPEC/Saudi Arabia/ARAMCO and the Rockefellers.

        In addition, a 2008 study by Anthony Breitzman and Diana Hicks for the Office of Advocacy (“An Analysis of Small Business Patents by Industry and Firm Size”) found that “small firms are much more likely to develop emerging technologies than are large firms…. [Which is then stolen by large corporations or China.] ….”

        • You’ve made the kind of points I generally try to as well… most (and no offense to anyone), don’t like to or want to consider them.

          But, “they” have truly made fiat, albeit it all too real in their fake debtor’s world for “us”, a perfect from of slavery that keeps many millions of decent hard working people trapped in interest, the principle barely going away over decades at times. People should pay debt off immediately if they’ve gotten into it, but they can’t, as wages haven’t increased strongly enough ever- to do so.

          It’s all by evil design, and the feral reserve rakes in many millions an hour as a result of it.

          I reckon 98% or more of Americans actually believe the feral reserve is “federal”.

          Not necessarily a good idea since it builds resentment. (Though I would really love to close and lock the door to the USA and flip the finger at all the globalists.)

          What is the basic idea of BARTER (trade) I trade my sheep and goat meat to my gardening mad neighbor and get canned veggies and pies in return. We both win via SPECIALIZATION. We concentrate on what we do best and the entire ‘village’ is wealthier.

          When you go beyond simple local barter you end up with a ‘trader’ or middleman facilitating the bartering. Move forward centuries and now those middlemen are called transnational Corporations. And they HATE capitalism and LOVE Socialism.

          Why?
          Because they can get governments to make it ILLEGAL for my neighbor and I to do direct trading aka capitalism. It is a Win – Win for the corporations and the government since now my neighbor and I are forced to work for a corporation and the government gets a nice healthy (70-80%) cut of the wealth we create.
          ….

          So what President Trump is doing is making the USA wealthier by increasing our ability to make stuff, BUT by including other countries (my neighbor) he is making THEM wealthier TOO!

          Trade is NOT ZERO SUM — EVERYONE is BETTER OFF! (Except the middlemen & rent seekers)

Somebody wants things from us because we do them very well, and in exchange we want things from them that they do well. Definitely a win-win.

    Tokyo needs to wake up and smell the green tea. Korea has agreed to a revised FTA with America, opening up to US autos by removing the old “structural impediment” of fudged environmental standards. Is Tokyo watching this? Remember the G7 in Kyoto over twenty years ago and Japan promised to recognize US smog standard impediments for vehicles, all for naught? China is now negotiating with the US to avert a trade war, but a large portion of China’s trade surplus with the US comes from Japanese and Korean products assembled in China for export to the US, like Japanese products assembled in Mexico for the American market as well. After all, how did those Mao-suited bicycling-riding Chinese find the manufacturing prowess to export to the USA? Same as the Mexicans, thanks to Kagemusha.

    Japan has the most to lose in the reshuffling of trade relationships by Trump as most of Tokyo’s trade surplus is cloaked by satellite export countries, like Vietnam, Philippines, Mexico and China.

    Trump knows that Japan is the toughest nut to crack, for reasons beyond mere trade.

    There is a real danger Japan will follow the status quo and delay talks on a FTA with the US. Tokyo’s recent restrictions on US beef remain, even though the reshuffle trade train has left the station. Perhaps Abe is more concerned with changing the Constitution?

    BTW, Japan is demanding several conditions for US-DPRK negotiations, such as the abductee issue (Japanese were kidnapped in the 1970s, but so were Koreans and three Americans are still held by Pyongyang) and eliminating Nodong middle-range missiles that have been deployed for 20 years. In other words, Tokyo may be a spoiler to negotiations as Abe is using the DPRK tensions to push through Constitutional reform that most Japanese do not prefer.

    You’re right, many if not all of our younger generation has never witnessed our country putting itself first for its economy. However, many of them do understand the importance in making our country great again.

    My twelve year old daughter and I have a lot of discussions covering many topics. One of her favorites is hearing about our President Trump and what is going on in the WH versus the msm.

    Thankfully, she understands the common sense approach of a strong economy and a strong middle class in order for any country to thrive.

    It was only last Friday when her and I went out for ice cream and we went over the importance of a strong middle class, in which I used the state of California and the country of South Africa as examples and the reason for their economic downfall.

    A few weeks ago I had listed a yuuge list of stastistical facts on South Africa ranging from their murder rate, life expectancy and so much more here at CTH. I was actually surprised I had been able to retain a good number of those stats and be able to pass them on to my daughter. I do know I had to seriously think if it was smart to open her eyes to the atrocities happening in South Africa, and to give her the percentage of girls infected with HIV/AIDS compared to the boys of the same age and so forth. I wanted to show her what a Marxist country turns into and how it will eventually destroy the majority no matter their race.

    I don’t like showing her the evils of this world, I take no pride in it. However, I want her to be aware and to learn the reasons why countries and states fail under Marxist, socialist, communist whatever and what can happen to their people in a personal way as well.

    I’m not a perfect parent by any means, but I am more than aware that our public school system is not going to teach all of the truths or teach her all of the tools available to her and how to use them. This is where I as a parent comes in to provide her a balanced diet and to show her cynicism isn’t all bad when it comes to reviewing what is presented to her and her peers in the classroom.

    Dad? He provides her with difficult math problems that are always a few steps ahead of her class. He also shows her that goofiness and laughter are much needed at any age.

    The more time parents spend with their children, the better off they will be.

          Ma’iingankwe,
          We married too late to have children so we have sort of adopted the neighborhood kids. Hubby is better with them than I but they all love to visit (esp when we have lambs and kids to pet. 😂)

    Awesome! I used to listen to a BRILLIANT inventor / physics professor / nuclear weapons researcher / and radio host – Dr. Bill Wattenburg from KGO radio. He spent many a night talking about the importance of ENERGY, Military, manufacturing.

    He always said if we could bring down the price of energy, it would be a game changer. Reliability of Supply is also critical. Like Ross Perot, he knew the importance of having heavy manufacturing here in time of war.

    As an aside, he and his team from Lawrence Livermore Labs came up with an invention – within weeks – called the chain matrix minesweeper to remove land mines via a helicopter for Desert Storm.

    Great news. The NAFTA redo will be very interesting.

      used to argue with economics profs about need for cheap energy supplies for a modern manufacturing-industrial-banking economy with them thinking it was an outdated model…..w/o energy there is retraction from current levels and a lowering of economic activity

    This is the Indian investor. He mentions specifically the Section 232s and the tariffs that prompted this move, and explains exactly how they figured out how to triple their profits by manufacturing in the U.S. (around the 4-5 minute mark).

    The Indian investor talks about how, if they are unable to obtain a 2-year steel tariff waiver, they will utilize those countries that do have steel tariff waivers until production starts in 2020.
    Do not look for China to obtain a steel tariff tariff waiver, imo.

    The project started 18 months ago.
    Gee, wonder how they knew?

      Thank you so much, Jeans2nd for posting this. Treepers are phenominal at finding & sharing these nuggets.

      I must say … this female interviewer is far more impressive than most ‘young’ folks in these positions. He did a great job with his answers.

      So exciting #MAGA with steel & aluminum made in USA 🇺🇸🇺🇸

      President Trump gets foreigners to invest in American PRODUCTION; Hillary got them to … uh … invest in Clinton Slush Foundation.

    Best of luck on India buying your steel mill. It didn’t work out so well in Canada.

    An Indian company swooped in, made grand promises, and sucked dry what remained of our steel mill after a US hedge fund had its way with it. The Indians took it private, and split off profitable, necessary parts of the mill into separate companies, owned by the Indian parent company, instead of the Canadian steel mill. The energy generation, the docks became a port, etc., etc. Then the parent company charged the steel mill, under loooong term contracts, a hefty price to use that port, energy generated from the mill, etc. Of course, they received taxpayer loans and grants to do this. And then they pushed the mill into bankruptcy protection, walking away with company-owned, secret steel recipes, the port and the energy generation facility. The company is now fighting in court to get back what was stolen. So far they’re losing.

    Be careful what you cheer, be wary Texas.
