May 16 - The US Economy is so desperate they're faking a trade war to sell school supplies

Note from OP: Controlled consumer based revenue burst. Look how easy it for the government to tell you what to buy

Going to the store is about to get a lot more expensive.

As trade tensions between the U.S. and China escalate, with both sides increasing tariffs on a widening selection of products, American consumers will see higher prices as soon as this summer.

Tariffs on goods traded between the U.S. and China have already increased in several stages since early 2018. Now, President Donald Trump has added a 25 percent tariff (up from his original proposal of 10 percent) on another $200 billion worth of Chinese imports, and China hit back with 25 percent duties on another $60 billion worth of U.S. goods.

Buy that iPhone or TV now

To get ahead of the next waves of tariffs, Russ recommends buying some items now, if possible — such as backpacks and other back-to-school supplies — rather than holding off until later in the year.

“If you were planning a large purchase six weeks from now, you may want to make that purchase today,” French said. Still, many Americans don’t have that kind of disposable income on hand, he added.

“It’s just getting more expensive,” added Michael Bonebright, a senior blog editor at comparison shopping site DealNews.

For example, “I would immediately buy a smartphone, rather than wait until Black Friday,” he said. The price for a new iPhone could rise by around $160, analysts estimate.

There will be a similar impact on TVs, Bonebright said. “Fifty-five-inch flat screens are at a historic low, which tells me those prices are going to go up.”

Of course, the same rule applies for everyday purchases, where consumers will be harder hit, such as frozen food and paper goods, including diapers and paper towels.

“Stock up now, so you don’t get sticker shock two or three months down the line,” Bonebright said.

As for large appliances, such as washing machines and dryers, which are already more expensive compared with last year, “stay out of that market,” Bonebright said

every news article regarding the "trade war" with China is asking Americans to go buy everything impacted by the tariffs now.

I feel its a "wag the dog" event ment to stimulate a struggling economy so I titled my thread that.

Here's what you don't see on American news fronts though.... the headlines from China

China slams Donald Trump’s ‘false and fake’ a*sessment of its economic performance amid trade war tensions

Got it. So you don't believe that product prices will rise because of the Tariffs?

No and I also believe that if they do it's all controlled to simulate a trade war.

This is one of thousands of options that world government have at their disposal to promulgate a sense of urgency or crisis when there really isn't one.

That's how governments have weathered uprisings and coups in the past.

But I'm not following as to why? What good would this do for the US or China? Tariffs actually have long term effects on the economy whether you believe it or not. So why would anyone willingly do this to their own country unless they were just misinformed (i.e. Donald Trump). Sounds like you believe that Xi, Trump, and different leaders from different countries in the world all decided to perpetuate a Trade War, for literally nothing, because at this point, no one is winning.

I think that's more of a gimmick to exploit the emotions of people. The economy is on fire. They don't need to fake anything. Spending is at an all time high, corporate spending is at an all time high. Unemployment is low, car sales are up, home sales are up. With a world economy, we're not strictly reliant on Chinese exports. Sure some commodities might have price increases, but the actual effects on the consumers will be manageable.

Prices have already gone up due to tariffs though. Why wouldn't they continue rising?

Just look at steel appliances. They've gone up in price since the trade wars started.

Americans don't even have the disposable income to run to the store and stock up on stuff months in advance. Terrible plan if this was actually true.

The why is the hard part. You know how gas stations price gauge when a hurricane is still days away?

That's what I feel is happening right now. Maybe the rift between the US/China is in its infancy and this is the start of a much bigger problem but the spin on it right now is still intended to capitalize on that imo and drive people who are at the mercy of whatever the media tells them to do.

Why are you talking about this sh*t like it's a game? Your Team? If you're American we're all on the same team genius. And then you didn't even address anything he said, you just came in yelling fake news with zero substance to add. If it was fake news you should have been able to articulate what was fake about it

if you choose to buy the goods. The alternative is not buying chinese made phones, chinese made school supplies, new cheap a*s shoes from china, curbing the orange chicken intake for a few months and beating the system at its own game

I'm not rich but I certainly aint broke and I'm Canadian. As much as misery loves company I've never let the depression, drama obsessed American way get to me. I'd tell you more about how great my life is but because it's so great you might resent me for it and then that leads to envy and uglier things.

You guys have your own problems then. And I find it hilarious that Canadians like you try to sh*t on the US when your entire way of life would be a 180 if the United States didn't share a border with you.

Tell Ronnie to run our IPs and I bet you a stack you have more than one username and I don't.



And you don't have to front for anyone. I know you ain't sh*t or else you wouldn't be on here making these fugazi a*s threads. Get a fu*king a life.
