Canada is unfairly using their abundant tree supply to keep land lease prices down in CA. The American NW cannot match those low prices, so Trump will smack a tariff down to keep things 'fair'. I wonder if he will also smack a tariff on their oil. After all, their natural abundance of oil is unfairly keeping US wild cats down.

US home buyers will pay the price, but they will have the satisfaction of knowing that more of their home was grown in America.

Yeah. It should be a boost for anyone long in property. Know anyone like that?
Who do you think a tariff on steel would help? Anyone long on high rises, maybe?

It should also transfer some wealth to forest owners in the US.

Good the more building costs and interest cost the less those shit shacks will be worth when people stop buying them or renting them because the rent's too damned high!

American logging has regulations to make it sustainable. Complying with those regulations costs timber companies money which makes them less competitive with foreign companies. Trump is just protecting local businesses, local jobs, and (perhaps inadvertently) the environment with this tariff. Any taxes collected will also go to reducing the deficit.

When will he pay the 35% tariff on everything that he,his family & the Trump COMMUNIST sympathizers imported & buy from COMMUNIST GHINA?
How much COMMUNIST GHINA crap do you own?

Today's HYPOCRITE troll lesson.

It will add $1200 to build a new home in the US. Not a bog deal. Probably less in California because homes are smaller.

Feux Follets says
Equally compelling, tariffs on Canadian softwood lumber will result in the net loss of 9,370 U.S. jobs in 2018. This figure includes an increase of 1,193 jobs in U.S. sawmills, and a loss of 10,563 jobs in all other industries because there are millions more jobs in the U.S. that depend on lumber than there are jobs in domestic lumber production.

In other words, nearly nine jobs will be lost in other U.S. industries for every job gained in domestic sawmills as a result of the lumber tariffs.


30% increase on lumber prices and a net loss of jobs. That's another 2 accomplishments to add to Trump's amazing first year. MAGA!

Trump directly produced those 1200 jobs. The 10K loss is Obama's fault. That much, he can tell you.

The writer didn’t source his claim of 10k job losses due to higher priced timber. How do we know that is accurate? Places like Denver are so short on construction workers that the lead is nine months for beginning house construction.
Which jobs... exactly... were lost?

Amazing that somebody actually seriously asks this.

Stop supporting the market, stop quantitative easing (this is merely printing money, it's direct inflation), allow interest rates to hit market rates, enforce laws against market manipulation, and prosecute illegal actions in the banking and financial services.

We have a national debt that doubles, every 8 years. If you doubt this, here's our debt:

http://www.polidiotic.com/by-the-numbers/us-national-debt-by-year/ Please verify the numbers.

And the calculation of the debt (if it doubled every 8 years):

1971 $398,129,744,455.53
1979 $796,259,488,911.07
1987 $1,592,518,977,822.15
1995 $3,185,037,955,644.31
2003 $6,370,075,911,288.63
2011 $12,740,151,822,577.27
2019 $25,480,303,645,154.55
(we are here - see, this is a 50 year trend, think it's going to suddenly change?) - and here we're going
2027 $50,960,607,290,309.11
2035 $101,921,214,580,618.23
2043 $203,842,429,161,236.46

If the laws were enforced, the markets were allowed to be free either housing would plummet, or we'd have massive inflation. Neither is going to happen.

What will happen, is that will re-balance by making the dollar worthless, and nearly all assets liabilities.

Austrian economists have been warning about this for DECADES. Well, the few that are left when we actually practiced that system - they're all nearly dead, so we're all Keynesians now. It's like a 99.9% to 0.01 trade. When the bottom falls out of this the Austrians who have been preparing for this (and there's plenty who have been intentionally gaming the system) are going to be obscenely rich - as long as they can survive societal breakdown.

This depression will make the last one look like a mild, short recession.
