Trump Avoided Trudeau More Than Once at UN, Official Says


“We’re very unhappy with the negotiations and the negotiating style of Canada,” Trump said. “Canada has treated us very badly. Canada has a long way to go.” He said both that there’s a “good chance still” that the U.S. and Canada will reach a deal, but also that “probably or possibly” they won’t.


How likely are you going to have a reasonable conversation with someone who tells you that you „ have a long way to go“? Trump is just doing is same old bullying, but I don’t think it will work with the EU, Canada or China, especially since has bully‘s everyone at the same time.

Also, the trade issue with Canada has very little to do with milk, it’s just  something that tends t9 his base (farmers). Theremis probably a few hundred million in export business best case, that is little keep more than a rounding error. If it weren’t milk, he would find something else to do a trade spat.
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

This is a nice little clip. Rolling back regulation means so much to small business.

Which regulations, exactly, were the ones ruining small business?

One of the hypotheses is that animal spirits have been unleashed.
A milder hypothesis is that there has been a renewed oomph.

But, as far as deregulation, the jury may still be out as the deregulation "environment" has pushed sentiment levels but IMO it remains to be seen how this will result in positive fundamental changes.

It is pretty clear that small business optimism is on the rise but breaks from previous trends are not so clear.

Deregulation is a great idea but I would say that blanket deregulation is not the way to go. When compared, the US GDP ratio over regulatory burden is alreadynear or at the top. It's possible but one needs to repeal, replace AND retain.

Yes, maybe a little early to declare victory here , but this was an anecdotal clip that made sense to me.

So much of the previous administrations regulations just flat out strangled business and job growth. Certainly, the EPA was totally out of control, killing
jobs and economic growth in pursuit of Obama's climate change policy. Was good to see Trump take an axe to the EPA and dismantle policies that
were designed over regulate. The Clean Power Plan was on shaky legal grounds and likely to eventually be struct down once the courts caught up with Obama.

These regulations raised energy costs for millions of Americans, killed jobs and economic growth. Now we have needed pipelines being built, drilling in Alaska,
coal industry coming back to life and making cars again.

This is just a sample of the damage that over zealous regulation does to economic growth.  So Value2's clip makes total sense to me.
This is how we might have a chance of attaining 3-4% economic growth that benefits millions of American's.

Just in case you're not familiar with Mr O'Leary, he's quite a character.

He is controversial, tends to be blunt and his writing style is not for every one but I feel that you may like:

He has been a very successful businessman but his political talents have not been recognized on this side of the border.
He has three priorities in life: money.
