  • How To Create Jobs: A Note To Obama [View article]
    Some think only a war will cure the US. Then lets have a war against poverty. Instead of making weapons to kill, we can make tools for the poor in Africa and other poor areas to use. We can send soldiers to help them with the new tools. They will welcome us. Instead of paying farmers not to grow, we can help the world's starving people.
    Is that not the same as real war and killing people?

    When your boat is taking on water, you do not think what to do next year. You want to get out alive.

    Yes, China is printing over time. Probably a little slower than the US as the Yuan is allowed to appreciate at a set limit. There is one huge difference though. China invest the printed money, either to buy foreign equities, commodities, foreign companies, or invest in infrastructure. China expect to recover most if not all these investment in the future and in many cases make some profit. If the US do the same thing, US citizens should welcome such efforts.

    China want to make steel in the US with a US partner. China did not get the go ahead. Why? How different is that from Japan making cars in the US?

  • Boeing Dreams Big For China [View article]
    China is starting to make its own airplanes. China does not make a wide body plane yet. Can Boeing count on China will not start making wide body planes in 10 to 20 years?

    The US government deficit is 2.5 times its trade deficit and it is 5 times its trade deficit with China. Blaming trade imbalance for all the ills in the US economy is a stretch. We can balance our trade by stop buying, but if you think we can force others to buy our product by placing tariff on their products is not straight thinking.

    If you have a better plan, lets have it. Being negative will not make the problems go away. If you tear down the old house but have no plan to build a new one, you will become homeless.
    If you do not think Obama is doing a good job, tell him how he can do his job better. He want what is good for the US, he care about the US, he want every US citizen to have a job. If you can do these, he would be happy to you his job.

    You can not be more wrong about Obama. He want the US to be prosperous. He want unemployment to come down. He want every American to have jobs. What he want and what he get is a different story.
    Can someone else do a better job than Obama? Can someone else get US workers to accept less pay so the US can be more competitive? Can someone else get Americans to balance their budgets?

    A scaled tariff will reduce US imports and probably will not increase US exports by much if at all.
    The US will not succeed in forcing others to buy US products. The US has to make products others want at reasonable prices.
    The US can stop buying Chinese products, but the US can not force China to buy US products if China can buy the same products cheaper and/or better from other countries.

    If the money is spend to invest, there is a chance it will pay itself. If the money spend is on consumption, it has no chance it will pay anything much less pay itself.

    Do not pour cold water on any idea until we try it. If the new idea do not work we are no worse of. Not trying will never work. If you shoot, you have a chance even a slim one, a 100% of the shots you do not make we not go into the net.
