Scoop from my colleagues in Beijing: China isn’t ready to sign what Trump calls the “phase one” deal without more talks later this month. Beijing also wants commitments prior to signing that the next round of U.S. tariffs, scheduled for Dec. 15, is off.

It’s so weird that they wouldn’t agree that the talks have concluded. No one would have seen that coming from the fact that it isn’t even in writing yet.

So Trump starts a round of tariffs and China retaliates and now Trump can't even get an agreement to stop that? Art of the Deal!

Democratic congresswoman Abby Finkenauer from Iowa said the agreement should not be interpreted as a clear win for US farmers. “The President started this fire, and he should not be taking a victory lap over putting only part of that fire out. The markets we took decades to build have been lost to countries like Brazil,” she said in a statement. (During the trade war, with tariffs between the US and China, Chinese buyers have turned to Brazil for many agricultural products like soybeans.)

The previous high for Chinese purchasing of agricultural  commodities was 25 billion in 2014. You don’t make agreements with other countries like Brazil for 18 months during a trade war with the US, build infrastructure in S. America and then say to them “thanks for supplying us with your soybeans but we are now going to go back to the US and buy double the amount of Ag commodities than we ever have before. Ain’t happening folks, get real!

China very well could make this kind of deal though.  See this thread from one of the better trade experts I read:  https://twitter.com/Brad_Setser/status/1182763704368205824

China purchased about 9 billion last year. That is a lot of value added commodities away from 50 billion. I don’t buy it.

I don't buy it will happen either, but it could given how China runs their country.   They can also very easily close off other markets when they want.

We should probably discuss Trump's trade advisor in here.  Peter Navarro.

Apparently his stock market guru/Harvard alum coauthor for most of his books "Ron Vara" is best friends with John Barron.

Trump's 'China Muse' Has an Imaginary Friend

It's all made up.  Shocking, I know, for such great advice.

"Who Is Vara?"

Apparently no one questioned the guy who allegedly rode out a hurricane on a houseboat, but Australian professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki started looking into him and realized the anagram "Ron Vara = Navarro."

Yeah, these tariffs are very different than the ones imposed on China (and for the steel and Aluminum tariffs).  The latter were not done through the WTO, but by Trump waving his magic marker and saying, "I'm imposing these for national security reasons."  Which is obviously bunk.

The EU tariffs are a punishment, arbitrated through the WTO, for illegal EU subsidies for Airbus, which hurt US businesses, especially Boeing.

These tariffs will be suspended once, and only if, the G7 submits their attendance RSVPs to Doral.

Plenty to dump at Trump's feet....this isn't one of those things.  It will be interesting to see if the EU will successfully sue the US for their allegations around propping up Boeing.  I think those hearings start soon.

I assume it's through the WTO as well.  You know, the proper way to arbitrate trade disputes between members...

Read the other day that due to the Swine flu raging in China, pork prices for Danish pork is now the highest since 2000 (this despite the Russian embargo on EU pork and other meats). It is not imposssible that a small thanks is owed to Trump for succesfully keeping the American pork producers from sending pork to this lucrative market. Should that go in the silver inings thread? ;)

1 in 4 pigs raised in the US are owned by a Chinese company.  Said Chinese company qualifies to receive farm aid from Trump for the trade war.

GDP growth in at 1.9% for the quarter. That’s 3 of the last 4 quarters at or under 2%, and the first time in 10 years with two consecutive quarters of lower GDP growth.

2 1/2 years of Trump policy, including doubling our deficits.  It may be time to start asking “is this working?”

Its the wrong question - and will lead to the wrong answer.

Of course its not good policy.  But, it is having the desired effect: short-term bump in stock prices.  Sadly, for many, the short-term bump in stock prices means "Its Working, baby!"

Hmm - just saw this:

 

And now Chile's president has cancelled the APEC summit next month.

This throws the Trump-Xi meeting and "phase one" trade deal signing up into the air.

 

 

At the very least, I suppose it creates a delay on the non-existent "phase one" deal until US and China can figure out a different meeting time/place.
