Harley-Davidson Will Shift Manufacturing Overseas To Avoid Tariffs
Post Date: 2018-06-25 12:43:00 by Deckard

It can do that because it's a global brand, but other businesses aren't as lucky. And workers everywhere stand to lose. Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle brand, will shift some manufacturing overseas in response to the raising of trade barriers on both sides of the Atlantic. In a filing made Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Wisconsin-based Harley-Davidson disclosed plans to move some of its manufacturing facilities from the Rust Belt to the Old World in the hopes of avoiding higher costs created by new European Union tariffs that target American-made motorcycles, along with other cultural products like whiskey and blue jeans. Those 25 percent ...

Tariffs Will Wipe Out the Benefits of Tax Reform
Post Date: 2018-06-19 13:37:36 by Deckard
5 Comments
Yes, the lowering of the corporate tax rate gave businesses a nice profit bump, but new tariffs will probably cost them more than they saved. Former White House economist Gary Cohn expressed concerns yesterday that Trump’s tariffs would erode the benefits from tax reform. Since the on-again-off-again 25 percent tariffs on imports from China are—as of 3:23pm, Friday, June 15, 2018—“on again,” let me share this back-of-the-envelope analysis that shows why Cohn’s concerns are justified. The Numbers Don't Look Good Certainly, the additional profits expected from the reduction in corporate rates from 35 to 21 percent could be entirely wiped out for the ...

Your Definitive High-Yield Dividend Stock Buying Guide
Post Date: 2018-06-06 09:04:14 by Willie Green

A deep dive into how to find the best high-yield dividend stocks. Investors who are seeking income have several options, including high-yield savings accounts, bank CDs, bonds and bond funds, annuities, and of course high-yield dividend stocks. These options range in safety and yield, with high-yield stocks tending to offer more income potential but with increased risk. However, the trade-off is that in addition to the increased income, high-yield dividend stocks also tend to provide additional upside in the form of dividend increases and capital appreciation. While there's more risk involved when investors stretch for higher yields, there are safe dividend stocks out there. The key to ...

Donald Trump is no stranger to hyperbole, or the bellicose and boisterous showmanship of a New York City salesman – after all, he is the CEO in Chief – but even his most ardent supporters may be scratching their heads today. Trump has been unapologetically proud of being an American, as are many of us here in the greatest nation to ever have existed.  The problem lies in the left’s willingness to distort this pride as some sort of xenophobic disaster waiting to happen in which Trump becomes literally Hitler – an allegation so predictable that it boggles the mind as to how it could exist at all.  It’s a sad reality, in fact, that the left ...

China will dramatically reduce its tariffs on imported autos to 15% from 25%, and will also cut its import tariff on auto parts to 6% from a range of 8% to 25%, the Chinese government said on Tuesday. The reduction will be effective July 1. The announcement comes as high-level trade negotiations are ongoing between the U.S and China, in order to avert a trade war. The auto sector has been an important focus of the talks. China’s Ministry of Finance said in a statement that the reduction of tariffs was an “important measure in further opening up” the Chinese economy. In April, China announced plans to allow full foreign ownership of automakers in five years, ending ...

The number of Hollywood films featuring LGBTQ characters plummeted nearly 40 percent in 2017 compared to the year prior, an annual survey of the major movie studios by GLAAD said on Tuesday. The group found that just 14 wide releases from the majors, as well as offerings from their indie divisions, were inclusive of queer identities in 2017, a drop from 23 films in 2016. Only 12.8 percent of studio films contained characters who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer — the lowest percentage of LGBTQ-inclusive major studio releases since GLAAD began tracking in 2012. Trans characters were absent entirely from wide releases (though the report does contain praise for the ...

There’s a strategy here, I think, but hoo boy is it weird watching President MAGA tweet about the importance of saving Chinese jobs. Especially when those jobs are at a telecom company which has been accused repeatedly of acting as a surveillance arm of the Chinese government. Members of Congress have been calling ZTE a national security threat since the end of Obama’s first term. The Pentagon has banned military bases from selling the company’s phones and U.S. intel honchos publicly warned American citizens against using them a few months ago. Now here’s Trump, the great protectionist, a man who was threatening China with $100 billion in new tariffs five weeks ago, ...

Free Thought Project – by John Vibes There has always been some suspicion that pharmaceutical companies would rather keep people sick and on drugs than cure them in one shot and lose the ability to create return customers. Although the massive motive here is easy to see, with the industry bringing in over $453 billion in the United States alone in 2017, many people have a hard time considering that these companies don’t have their customers’ best interest at heart.   The idea that these companies would want to keep us sick is dismissed by many as a “conspiracy theory,” but let’s not forget that these companies and their high-level investors ...

U.S. Trade Deficit with China Has Eliminated at Least 3.4M American Jobs by John Binder 5 Apr 2018 The United States’ trade deficit with China has eliminated at least 3.5 million American jobs since 2001, data reveals. As President Trump is set to release a package of $50 billion worth of tariffs and restrictions on Chinese investments, the U.S. goods trade deficit with China remains at $29.3 billion. Since 2001, free trade with China has cost millions of Americans their jobs. For example, in a report by the Economic Policy Institute, between 2001 and 2015, about 3.4 million U.S. jobs were lost due to the country’s trade deficit with China. Of the 3.4 million U.S. jobs ...
