Gas companies do that all the time. The crude market will go up one day and you'll see it at the pumps the next day even though that didn't affect what they already had in storage.

And then the prices will go back down ..but the gas companies won't change their prices for MONTHS...
 
If they can change as soon as it goes up..they should change as soon as they go down.. *shrug*

Regardless, I think tariffs are a bad deal for all...if they're used for leverage to make better deals (or get rid of tariffs altogether), I'm for them
in the short term.....
 
Regarding shopping for 5 bucks off...I'm not one who generally does that. I buy from a place I know and trust even if the price is 5 or 50 dollars higher.
 
I know I'll get what I pay for? Worth the peace of mind.

I surely don't understand why everyone is up in arms when the US is doing what China has been doing to the US for YEARS and it's still not an even playing field.  They haven't been playing fair and shouldn't have gone this long.  Unfortunately, money buys and corrupts folks in charge at the levers for trade, IP, price fixing/gouging, insider trading, etc.

The US has been distributing it's wealth to the rest of the world and has gotten many out of poverty.  Now it's time for the US to bring some of that wealth back home to restructure itself for the 21st century.

The U.S. trade deficit with China was $375 billion in 2017. The trade deficit exists because U.S. exports to China were only $130 billion while imports from China were $506 billion.

I remember TV still being made in the U.S.
 
Would to see panels,"screens", motherboards, GPU's being made in the states again.  Memory and cpu chips, we'll prob  never see those made in the states again.
 
 
BTW, we should of put a stop to this China thing decades ago...

The problem that ordinary USA citizens don't see is that American steel lacks quality. In my personal opinion the USA steel industry hasn't put enough money into making sure steel factories have superior equipment and better trained personnel. The owners of those companies are taking too much money for themselves rather than invest in infrastructure. If American steel were competitive in the first place none of these tariffs would come to pass.

Have to call you out that regarding quality. Since the MTA (NYC subway system) started using cheap Chinese steel a couple of years ago, they've had multiple rails 'split' - all the Chinese ones, this never happened with US steel. This comes straight from a couple of MTA workers/supervisors who have to deal with the substandard imported Chinese steel every day. It's dangerous as hell, and MTA are having an increasing amount of issues with derailments, switching issues etc because of older parts being replaced with cheap imported crap.
 
As far as US CEOs taking obscenely high compensation, yes that's certainly true.

It's refreshing to read posts like this. I live in NYC and all I hear all day is TDS and anti *ANYTHING* that POTUS instigated, no matter how much it has benefited the people and the economy.

Likewise.  

Don't forget the cancerous chinese made drywalls.  Stay away like the plague. 
 
Those mobile homes with THAT drywall were made to house those from Hurricane Katrina.  While some survived the horrible storm, some eventually got sick with cancer and or perished because of it.  Sad all around.

You should check out some youtube videos of those Chinese cities that were built just to be built. They are falling apart and they aren't even 4 years old.
 
This is Chinese quality on their own soil. Imagine how much they care about the construction material they send out of there. Plenty more of these type of videos on youtube. This is just horrific.

Exactly.  Very dangerous and all it could take is one massive earthquake which btw they are prone for and probably do for one to completely level most of theses 'new cities'.

You have to understand china's geopolitics to get a better understanding on why it is the way they do things but to stay within ToS, all I will say is they built many cities in a hastily and cutting corner manner.  It's a recipe for disaster and I can't image the carnage from a massive earthquake, let alone over time they'll just start collapsing naturally.
