    Default Why Trump can't strike a trade deal for American workers

    President Trump is well into his swing through Asia. And things have gotten a little awkward, as he's gone after China and Japan for their imbalanced trade relationships with America.

    Unfortunately, while Trump is right to question the reigning globalized trade order, he has neither the discipline nor the know-how to build a workable alternative.
    Mostly, his solutions center around his own supposed prowess at dealmaking. He's using this Asia trip to convince some of those rich Chinese business leaders to invest their wealth in domestic American projects, and thus create more domestic American jobs. Meanwhile, Trump's trying to cajole the Japanese into building more of their cars in the U.S., rather than shipping them over.

    Which could all conceivably make things a little better. But the amount of Chinese investment in the U.S. needed to rebalance a $347 billion annual trade deficit would be astronomical. As for the Japanese auto industry, Toyota and Mazda have agreed to invest $1.6 billion in a new U.S. plant, creating 4,000 jobs — less than one-sixtieth of our trade deficit with Japan in just one year, and a tiny drop in the bucket of the American jobs shortfall. Trump could never cut enough deals fast enough to actually make a real dent in the problem.

    Now there's a positive. Trump wins something without having to sue or file bankruptcy!

    So why not just use domestic policy to inject demand back into the U.S. economy? Trump could push industrial policy to create new jobs, expand spending on government assistance to the poor and working class, raise the minimum wage, empower unions, etc.
    I notice how the writer puts all the communist type policies first which cost....and then puts unions last on the list.....meaning labor is not his priority.

    same philosophy of previous dems who helped create all these imbalances and problems...and he would probably vote for NAFTA and the TPP and Fast Track with the Dems who did in the past.

    Doesn't seem to me that he wants stuff made here.

    Trump has, at least spoken, and made a big deal of the mistakes......this writer has all the same answers which will not empower American workers or poor.....welfare and food stamps don't really help the poor....they help the Big Ag Corporations and other ones too....maybe that is who the writer really works for or works to please.
