This is just anecdotal, but Hawaii has had relatively low numbers. Tourist must quarantine 14 days, and are checked on by the state. The C&C of Honolulu did not mandate masks, they have now opened bars, and upped the count for the amount of people that could gather. The covid count went from 20 something a day infections to 120 plus a day now. Kauai is going from 0 a day for weeks to 2 a day now with inter island travel. People who voice their views on data are past tense, the future is a guess. I will venture that people will suffer more than they think, because they have rights, and only worry about themselves, fuck everybody else.

the downturn for US Steel has everything to do with poor management, obsolete mills, failure to upgrade, and nothing to do with tariffs...........but, we have driven that point home time and again to you, in other threads. the failure to recognize and use common sense, is yours and yours alone
Right it was just a coincidence that it happened right after the tariffs were announced and that is what I predicted would happen.

I was in Hawaii when the virus was first getting noticed while I was working on a project for the Navy.
The airport was empty when I got there, I was worried that I would be stuck there.
That was one time I was happy to be booked on a 3rd rate airline, they got me home.

I'm sure that you know better than the federal reserve.

From the Federal Reserve:

Disentangling the Effects of the 2018-2019 Tariffs on a Globally Connected U.S. Manufacturing Sector
∗ Aaron Flaaen Federal Reserve Board
Justin Pierce Federal Reserve Board
December 23, 2019

Abstract

Since the beginning of 2018, the United States has undertaken unprecedented tariff increases, with one goal of these actions being to boost the manufacturing sector. In this paper, we estimate the effect of the tariffs—including retaliatory tariffs by U.S. trading partners—on manufacturing employment, output, and producer prices. A key feature of our analysis is accounting for the multiple ways that tariffs might affect the manufacturing sector, including providing protection for domestic industries, raising costs for imported inputs, and harming competitiveness in overseas markets due to retaliatory tariffs. We find that U.S. manufacturing industries more exposed to tariff increases experience relative reductions in employment as a positive effect from import protection is offset by larger negative effects from rising input costs and retaliatory tariffs. Higher tariffs are also associated with relative increases in producer prices via rising input costs.

Nucor steel, a company that is managed correctly had record breaking profits in 2018 due to a 21% increase in prices, and in 2019 there was less profit due to global downturn in demand............and i am a sure the chink virus will play a role in 2020............point is Nucor had record profits, from a 21% price increases.......US Steel was subjected to the very same price increase.......Tariffs played a role.

Hence the name.........Senator Bullschmidt

In his personal finances we have no idea where his money comes from.
The person that actually wrote "Art of the Deal" says he is a fraud.

We do know that he has suspicious deals with Russian and Arabs.
Anyone that would try to make money off something like Trump University is a failure as a person.

I also have no respect for anyone that runs a casino. Good people don't profit from addictions of others.

For the USA
He reduced regulations was the main thing.
In some ways that is good, in other obviously it may turn out to be destructive.
His big claim about bring jobs back through tariffs turned out to be a failure according to US government.
Fuck you

I left for a while because I took a job for a while that didn't allow the time, 12 hour days and 4 hours drive every day.
It was a fun job and was on my bucket list of things to do. But 18 months was enough.

Straw man argument^^^^ I am not in favor of welfare.
I am in favor of better education though.
It took them 18 months to get sick of you?
