Manufacturing Trade Advisor Peter Navarro Discusses China and Markets….

White House Manufacturing and Trade Policy Advisor Peter Navarro appears on CNBC to discuss the turbulent week on Wall Street and the current status of the U.S. trade position with China.  Pundits are starting to accept that bigger tariffs are on the horizon.  Team Trump is not backing down; and our U.S. position is much stronger.

On one hand, Wall Street loves cheap money (low fed rates). However, on the other hand 51% of all Chinese manufacturing is done by U.S. owned multinationals; and those corporations don’t want to see the retention efforts of China undermined with a lower dollar value (lower fed rate). As a consequence Wall Street is schizophrenic.


On the issue of manufacturers leaving China, Forbes has this outlook: “American businesses now have a month to prepare their supply chains for the impending tariff changes. Companies that do well will be the ones who have taken Trump at his word, rather than to doubt the Disruptor-in-Chief’s position on China. Further disruptions are coming to the U.S. supplier network, impacting how equity analysts view companies, recommend their stocks, and — in a broader sense — impacting the business cycle, already long in the tooth.” (link)

    Trump doesn’t care about reconciliation, trade parity, or fairness on the part of China.

    China took our money, and built a military to counter us. They are attempting to close down one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, the S. China Sea.

    Not only is he going to PERMANENTLY nueter this threat, but, if history is any example, this might lead to a collapse similar to the USSR, and the eventual collapse of the totalitarian state!

      China didn’t ‘take out da’ money’ – our country (politicians & industrialists, and ‘others’) sold out (manufacturing), and now we don’t want to reap the consequences.

      . . . the enemy is (and has been) us.

      The country is composed of and run by vicious narcissistic idiots (with smartphones & SUVs), flying the flag of a sick personality disordered Bedouin ‘god’ (read your Old Testament critically).

        The Ruling Class in China are godless Communists. … Trump was raised a Presbyterian. He wasn’t raised to worship a ~Bedouin ‘god’~
        [FYI, I’m an Irish Catholic.]

        Peter Navarro spoke about the secular problems due to >China’s policies. From the >transcript when Peter Navarro was speaking,… ” …start from the problem that we’re trying to address with China.
        it’s basically >seven acts of economic aggression that are built in structurally (into) the Chinese economy, and they’re worth going over.

        1. It’s the cyber intrusions into our business networks to steal our trade secrets.
        2. It’s the forced technology transfer in exchange for access to the Chinese market.
        3. Its intellectual property (theft) to the tune of several hundred billion dollars a year.
        4. The dumping of (China made) products below costs into our markets, which put our factories and jobs out of business.
        5. We’ve got the currency manipulation problem.
        6. Massive subsidies (to) the state-owned enterprises.
        7. And the seventh act of aggression which the president takes very very seriously
        is the made in China ~~>fentanyl and opioids, that will kill over a hundred people today over a thousand people this week, and over 50,000 Americans this year. … So when we’re negotiating with China, these are serious structural issues. This is ~>not a trade deal where they lower their tariffs; we lower ours, and everybody lives happily ever after.”
        Peter Navarro didn’t want to >just talk about a ‘trade deal’ with China. He wanted to emphasize Economic Aggression by China.
        Plus, the seventh act is not just an Economic Problem. … It’s also a social and moral tragedy causing great grief in our country. … Part of President Trump’s great appeal to Americans, is his actions in trying to stop the illegal drugs from China, plus the illegal drugs and criminals from Mexico.

      Sofa king,
      Thats been my assumption, for some time now. Suck back, or clawback as much of the $ as we can, directly thru tarifs, indirectly through companies moving back here, then collapse their economy.
      Conmunism stops,working, when it runs out of other peoples money.

      And don’t stop there; EU has screwed us just,as bad. Their combination of high tarifs, closed markets and underfunding NATO is what has enabled them to afford their generous sicial programs, AT OUR EXPENCE.

      The EU is a centralised, highly regulated, Conmunism lite, run by unelected (and therefore unresponsive to the people) Buerocracy that is exhibiting clear signs of dictatorial tyranny.
      Sounds like,Conmunism to me!
      And, it also can not continue to function, without a steady stream of other peoples money (OURS!).

      CLAW BACK and Shut down.

          When you reject neocon, or other pre-trump notions of international relationships, you dump the false notion of ‘allies’ or ‘enemies’; ALL are COMPETITORS.
          Remember PDJT said “Russia isn’t our ENEMY; they are a COMPETITOR.
          ALL countries are in competition with US, and we with them. Not about love ir hate, its “just business”.
          He also reiterates regularly “I don’t BLAME China, and have great respect for Xi and the Chinese people. I blame previous admins.”
          Again, its not personal, its business.
          Other countries, and their leaders are EXPECTED to try to do the best they can for their countries and people, and same for US.
          No wonder STATE,Dept. hates him so much. No need for all those sub-attaches, specialising in “mid-baltic transitional political upheaval” (or whatever). No diplomatic double speak. No ‘foriegn aid’. No interventionist wars, and attempting regime change thru subterfuge (CIA) OR Military invasion.

          A country can have whatever kind of a government their people will tolerate.
          If its Conmunist, it will NOT be able to compete, but thats not OUR doing.

          So yeah, no more allies that treat us in such a way that “With friends like this, who needs enemas?”
          As PDJT has pointed out, the EU has treated us almost as bad as China. True, no IP theft or forced tranfer, etc.
          But, closed markets with high tariffs, and we aren’t footing the bill for Chinas military, the way we are the EU.

          No allies, no enemies. And wars only for self defence.
          “Trade wars”? Not really.

        IMO, a simple first-pass screening of Funds (and/or Companies) would sequentially

        • Focus on funds invested in MID-to-SMALL CAP companies (typically non-globalist Mid-Caps with track records, sustainability and access to investment capital)

        • Screen for 2-3 YEAR PERFORMANCE LEADERSHIP (during Trump), particularly following the 2018 Tax Cuts (those that “get” where & how MAGAnomics will win, and have successfully concentrated investments on high-potential, near-term opportunities, with an understanding of the planning-execution cycle time for seizing on those opportunities)

        • Screen next for those with Business CONCENTRATED in the USA

        • Vet for Industry-Company combinations with “winning FUNDAMENTALS and sources of competitive advantage” that would deliver “Narrow-to-Wide Moat Ratings” (Morningstar criteria)

    Xi and his communist group may find a serious uprising there as well as many more Chinese citizens than 2700 communists. In China’s history this had happened more than once by supposed leaders so will be interesting to see how Xi either does what the Chinese want and need (they love our stuff, thank you!), who knows if the other communists remove him and maybe even kill him as they have with others.

      Not the first time I’ve had to present facts to you Carrie2.

      Ok la. FACT: the CCP has 90.59 million members and it is very difficult to join. Getting the ‘diploma’ opens doors. That is not counting the 80 million members of the Communist Youth League, the incubator for attaining full membership and is run by the Central Committee and forms a power base for leaders.

      Under Xi Mao2.0 the role of party members has expanded as all so called ‘private’ enterprises including foreign owned have to accommodate a CCP member on their boards.

      Non party members or those who haven’t attained membership get to up their political/social ‘credit’ score by participating in reading and memorising Xi thought through a mobile app.

      If you read Chinese on social media you would know that only the official version of events in Hong Kong is generally known. that is why HK protesters targeted Mainland visitors to try and get the message out. Also that official view that protesters are lawbreakers and led by foreigners, I.e. US to attack China’s sovereignty is widespread on social media. They do not mostly have access to the truth.

      As for agriculture, Russia is filling in the gap with massive wheat and soybean sales to China.

      I don’t know where you get your ideas from, but better to open your eyes and get a realistic appraisal of the situation. That is the first step to defeating the CCP.

      Here are just a few links to help you out.

    North Korea, Russia, Iran and China are all working on (or already have) Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Weapons. A 100 megaton yield EMP explosion 200 miles above Manhattan, Kansas would destroy all of the extremely high voltage transmitters that make the electrical grid work. Multiple EMP explosions of lower yields at lower altitudes will do the same thing. The transformers are not made in the USA and take from 3 to 5 years to build. If pushed to the point of destruction of the current political system in any of these nations, the leadership of the affected nation would likely feel it has nothing to lose by destroying the United States entire infrastructure which is what would happen if the grid is destroyed.

    Multiple low yield EMP explosions can be detonated as low as 18 miles altitude which can be reached by using high altitude balloons launched from remote locations within the United States. There is presently no way to know for sure who launched these balloons. Worse, presently, there is no defense against an EMP attack on the grid.

    My point is many people are pointing out that POTUS has the Chinese in a box and holds all the cards. That may well be true from a financial and geopolitical trade standpoint but it’s untrue in the larger picture. If we lose the grid from a multiple site balloon launched EMP attack, we will not even know for sure who is responsible. Meanwhile, we will sit in the dark for 3-5 years minimum worse case and our infrastructure and civilization will be in ruins within the first 3 months after the attack.

      It needs to made clear to these countries that an EMP attack will cause us to turn them into a glass parking lot in minutes. Our nuclear arsenal is global and hidden and independent of the grid. As Gordon Chang said this week, President Trump is a wartime President. China is our enemy.

      An effective EMP attack on the US would result in the death of 85% of our population withing 12 months. Yes, approx 250million lives. Those on life support would perish within days. Depletion of meds would result in many more deaths within 1-3 months. Then there is the large segment of our population who would just give up and refuse to help themselves. Many seniors, such as myself, would succumb to injuries, sickness or parasites. Then the roving human parasites who would survive by taking and preying on the weak.

      The above was from an 90ish period Energy related mag article on how unprepared the power industry is to an EMP attack.

      I would think, 6 months after an effective EMP attack, those with the best chance of survival is the military, upper pol elites, experienced hardened survivalist and those who have the means to escape to another country. That’s if we are not invaded by any number of countries to carve up the US and it’s resources.
      The Metro cities would have near zero survivability.


  9. Ausonius says:

    The Chinese have attempted to be Communist Capitalists, or Capitalistic Communists, and the oxymoron cannot hold onto its existence, since the contradiction demands a resolution. Brute force may hold the unnatural genes together for a while, but the energy needed for that force will eventually go geometric, and become impossible to continue.

    Capitalism demands free markets, which will demand with the passage of time political and social freedom, not just a narrow economic freedom.

    Either they drop the capitalism and return to oppressive Communism, whose contradictions will also – eventually, as we have seen (i.e. 1989-1991) – rise and cause a collapse, or they drop the Communism and attempt to establish a free society.

    A free society, however, will – as we have seen most recently – generate those whose failure to prosper in a free market will cause them to demand less freedom and less prosperity for the prosperous in the interest of “fairness.” These Hegelian cycles will not end: those who postulated an “End of History” because of a triumph of democratic capitalism worldwide disregarded some of the infinite talents of Humankind:

        I have no fluency in currencies, sadly. What I do understand is that when the value of a country’s currency declines against the value of any trading partner, the cost to acquire goods from a trading partner rises, as demonstrated by the cost of food rising in China.


      • A2 says:

        There is no difference. Renminbi is the official currency, yuan is a unit and means ‘dollar’.

        The PRC did have two currencies for a while, renminbi used in China and waihuiquan which was foreign certificates. Foreigners were forbidden to use renminbi as Chinese were not allowed to use the foreign certificates as common currency. That was eliminated, but the use of The term of yuan is just the unit name of the renminbi.

        Again, no difference.
