G20 to Trump: ‘All Our Economies Are Belong To You’…

Global economics, and the way the financial media spin, can be funny at times.  On one hand the pretentious global community scoffs at American Exceptionalism and claims the U.S. is only one country amid a international community of equals; on the other hand the reality of the U.S. being the leading economy in the world, and their need to retain access therein, slaps them in the face like a cold fish…

Investment capital flows to the location of highest return.  Amid the U.S. MAGAnomic growth; global investment is inbound to the USA.  The EU and Asia are in a period of low to stagnant growth…  lots of high-brow teeth gnashing.  To make matters worse, Trump is leveraging their weakness against them as he renegotiates reciprocal trade deals.

The G20 IMF and World Bank’s 2019 Annual Spring Meetings of finance ministers (fancy name to describe Mnuchin’s job) is taking place in Washington DC.  The finance ministers are stomping their feet at horrible Trump hoarding all the economic growth.

(Reuters) […] Policymakers from the Group of 20 industrialized countries are worried that the weakness evident in key economies could spread, especially if elevated trade tensions, such as those between the United States and China, escalate further.

“The balance of risks remains skewed to the downside,” Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said at a news conference following a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers. “We recognize the risk that growth prospects might deteriorate if weakening in key economies feed into each other.”

[…] As the chair country of this year’s G20 proceedings, Japan wants to deepen talks on global imbalances – an effort to divert Washington’s attention from bilateral trade imbalances and stave off U.S. pressure to negotiate two-way trade deals.

German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz, speaking at an event on the sidelines of the meetings in Washington, said the rules-based order of multilateralism is increasingly under threat and leaders must uphold international cooperation.  (read more)

Horrible Trump is not following the “rules-based order of multilateralism”.  So what exactly does Germany mean by that?….

For the answer lets look at the EU proposal today to avoid Horrible Trump’s demands for fair and reciprocal trade agreements:

(Reuters 2) […]  The EU is expected next week to give final clearance to the start of formal trade talks with the U.S. that could lead to the removal of duties on industrial goods and ease transatlantic tensions.

However, those talks face a series of hurdles, not least the U.S. insistence that market access for its farm products feature in the negotiations, something the EU has ruled out.

Germany, whose exports of cars and parts to the U.S. account for more than half the EU total, wants to press ahead with talks to ward off tariffs its carmakers, including Volkswagen, Mercedes maker Daimler and BMW.

France, with few car exports to the U.S., has resisted, insisting that climate change provisions should feature in any deal – a difficult demand given Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. (more)

So the EU demands include: continued blocks to U.S. agriculture exports; keep open access for their German high-end automobiles; and force the U.S. to join the climate change nonsense.  This is their plan for “free, fair and reciprocal” trade?…. LOL.

Yet somehow they wonder why investment is flowing into the U.S.?

Go figure.

President Trump’s #1 economic challenge right now is to re-skill a new generation workforce to support all the expanded manufacturing investment in the U.S.  This is not a bad problem to have…  Hundreds of new and innovative vocational development programs are ongoing to increase the skills of the U.S. workforce.

Winnamins.

      “Horrible Trump is not following the “rules-based order of multilateralism”

      But how long will this last ? President Trump, even if reelected, still only has 5ish years to continue these policies. Without an equally strong and like-minded successor, the current policies and successes will flounder at best. At worst, if another left-wing loon or POS gets in, they will be reversed and dismantled. I have said since the election of Bush (the dumber – not the elder) that we need AT LEAST Four consecutive terms of a stalwart conservative/patriot in order to completely and permanently redirect the course of this sinking and misguided ship we call America. Among the many things I loathe Bush the dumber for is the fact that in his final years in office he did absolutely nothing – and in fact, went out of his way to avoid – doing anything to help name and groom a successor to his administration – So That We Would NOT Get Someone Like Obama ! But he abandoned us. And I am SOOO Glad brother Jeb was sent packing. We Need 20 Years of Trump !

            I buy my Mercedes awd sedans 5 years old with around 60k miles on them, every ten years or so. My 05 cost 12,500 in 2010. My newest 2013 cost 13k around Thanksgiving.. 250 bucks a month. Ive had great luck with them. My 05 went 250k miles before the radiator went and I got rid of her. She went to a friend for his daughter, she’s over 300k now I still see her sometimes. People drive by me in way worse rides with way higher payments. And she’s absolutely gorgeous. And she’s a great drive. Car was 47k new. Who pays that? It’s just crazy.

        Australia has a Federal election on the 18th May. Left side Labor (dead loss) who needs the destructive Greens to get them over the line, will be a disaster for the country if they win. The right side Liberal/Nationals Coalition have been behind in the polls.
        Malcolm Turnbull (now EX PM) who knifed PM Tony Abbott, a conservative, was anointed by the socialists who had infiltrated the party to lead the party to the left. Hence that act of “treason” gutted the party and in the next election Turnbull lost all the seats won by PM Tony Abbott and ended up with a ONE seat majority.
        Peter Dutton, a straight shooter, challenged Turnbull who called a spill thinking he would win BUT in the first round, Heavens to Betsy, he lost. In the end, Scott Morrison won and is now our Prime Minister. He is a decent sincere bloke and clean as a whistle, nothing like this opposition. Turnbull pokes his head up now and again to tell Morrison what he is doing wrong. It probably makes him feel like he’s still in charge.
        We hope PM Morrison and President Trump can be friends and help one another. Australia is one big beautiful island. We await Australia getting back on track politically to fulfill its great potential.

          The USA is not the only country run by a Uniparty. The UK which has been run alternately by “the Conservative Party or the Labour Party” since the beginning of the 20th century is also a victim.
          About ten years ago, the people started supporting UKIP (the uk independence party) which was similar in many aspects to your Tea Party. However, the Uniparty went through the charade of replacing “the conflicted” PM David Cameron, with someone who would implement Brexit with no biases! Yeah well we’ve seen how that turned out.

          PM May has steered a course which has been billed by the complicit media (sound familiar?) as incompetent, but which was really the intention all along – to give the impression that something was being done to exit the EU. A side-effect was UKIP was “no longer needed” and fell back to being a nothing party.

          She has obviously never had any intention of taking the UK away from her elite chums in Europe as can be seen by the continual submission of her “version of Brexit” which has been rejected three times by her own parliament. Even they can see it replaces the EU membership treaty with an even worse treaty that embodies all the worst of the EU without the main advantage of leaving (to be able to independently trade with the rest of the world) and arguably the new treaty may not offer any legal way of leaving in future.

    “The EU and Asia are in a period of low to stagnant growth… lots of high-brow teeth gnashing. To make matters worse, Trump is leveraging their weakness against them as he renegotiates reciprocal trade deals.”

    As a 20T GDP, Britain SHOULD be running to our country. Every British citizen needs to understand this. Brexit is your only hope to restore your country.

    SD has a fabulous chart of the world economies. It is astonishing to review.

        How apt. And reciprocal trade is what the world will get, kicking and screaming, but at the heart of the matter they know this fulfills their needs.

        I expect in the next few months, a sea-change will occur in the rhetoric and their policies. It is inevitable.
        MAGA is not just for us but for them.

          I think it may take more than a few months. But once the world is all on reciprocal tariffs, any attempt to change from that, by any country or group of countries will be very hard to do, it seems to me.

          I liked “mirror tariffs”, so simple even a child could understand, but I’m o.k. with “reciprocal tariffs”, as well.

    “German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz, …
    said the rules-based order of multilateralism is increasingly under threat and leaders must uphold international cooperation”

    That, amusingly, sounds like “all hail the unelected elite EU Politburo”.

    Eat our dust German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz! You’ll take it and you’ll like it!

    Next move would be to pull our military out of hostile EU countries and force them pay for their own defense. Germany has touted their status as the most robust economy in Europe for decades as ours declined. Now that they’re being forced to give up what amounts to American subsidies, they cry foul. Europe needs to stand on it;s own or fail.

    Some people are saying that he has been so involved in all that has been going on with the Mueller Hoax that he is not seeing what china is doing by going to make deals in the Panama and also in our own back yard and he needs to stop china from doing anything further but He does not seem to be doing anything about this, Some sources also say that China is boxing us in and sooner or later we are not going to be able to move anything because China will own all the water ways and nothing will move with out their say so.. any one know anything more about this?
    I have to go to work but will be back later Been trying to soak up all the information that has been put out here and a lot to digest so thanks again for being there.

    he just keeps sticking his neck out for us and I hope that other countries will just agree that they need America’s help to but if not let them all die on the vine

      China will never box in the US. Our Navy and our Global Reach Airforces will cut any supply lines they try to establish. To start a war they need resources. We will rob them of any access to war matetials and as you say, they will either on the vine. I like the phrase” We will CRUSH them” better. China is our Enemy! OUR ENEMY!

    The EU is in no position to demand anything. Paris is on fire. Berlin has reached critical mass, and it’s a result of their leaders refusal to listen to their people. Macron and Merkel will most likely have their necks stretched very soon for their crimes against their citizens and new leadership will take their place. Hopefully they will side with the US instead of the Globalist elites.

    Merkel’s Germany and Macron’s France are nothing more nor less than enemies of the US.

    China is the biggest “Thief” of World Trade, closely followed by the EU.

    The WTO supports corrupt developing Nations and is past its sell-by date.
    President Trump’s template for Bi-lateral Free Trade moderated by reciprocity is the only way forward.

    The EU’s train has been diverted onto a branch line and is heading towards a chasm where the bridge has already collapsed.

    The best model for World Trade is encapsulated here;
    Google – “True free trade is only possible under trump”
