Which employer will be screwed the most by Trump’s trade policies?

Our dipsh*t fake president is trying his hardest to increase the price of consumer goods to American working folks. No need to repeat his lies and rationales for policy and plunder. True Believers will ignore any attempt at clarity. Americans with some understanding of what globalized economics means for consumer scale and income already know what I’m talking about.

I just wanted to offer this map – and a “Thank You” to Barry Ritholtz for offering it in his newsletter – to illustrate where families in this nation go to shop. You can figure out what will happen if our proto-fascist-in-charge gets his way. Costs rise. Prices rise. Folks who can afford that the least have the most to lose. And the company whose business model is focussed deeply on that demographic – will be the conduit from the White House to our wallets.

    President Donald Trump escalated the trade war with China on Tuesday with the release more than $200 billion worth of Chinese exports to the US that could be subject to new tariffs.
    As opposed to previous tariffs, which focused mostly on industrial goods, the roughly 200-page list runs the gamut — from consumer products to food to industrial chemicals. This means American consumers are likely to notice any potential price increases right away. http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-china-tariff-list-goods-2018-7
