While the mainstream media continue to wail about how President Donald Trump’s application of tariffs on imports will only incite “trade wars” and could not possibly generate even a single shipping crate’s worth of benefits, an early-August UBS Investor Watch poll says otherwise.

According to the poll, 71% of business owners, from both small and large companies, support levying additional tariffs on Chinese goods. In addition, more than 70% of business owners have a positive one-year outlook on the state of the economy.

May 16, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Another day, one more government outrage. The social Do-Gooders in Seattle approves business tax for homelessness. You can hear the cries for social justice all the way from the heart of the grunge ghetto.

“The Seattle City Council has approved a tax on large businesses such as Amazon and Starbucks to fight homelessness.

The council on Monday unanimously backed a compromise tax plan that will charge large businesses about $275 per full-time worker a year. It’s lower than the $500-per-worker tax initially proposed.

The tax would begin in 2019 and raise about $48 million a year to pay for affordable housing and homeless services.”

Today such enterprises are a mere shadow of their past glory, shell companies or virtually out of business. Bad decisions and inflexible adaptations certainly had much to do with their demise. However, persistent negative and adverse government policies from Albany and the NYS financial cabal in New York City has pushed and allowed the de-industrialization of Upstate economies. Even harder hit are small businesses who have struggled for several decades to simply survive.

As for research and development in new technology or products, how will such innovation be marketed in an economy infatuated with the promise of Amazon Prime drone deliveries?

The lethargic performance of the U.S. economy going back decades and plunging into an embedded depression, since the financial meltdown of 2007, has caused permanent damage. The business community and the financial press have yet to acknowledge that prospects are not going to improve. It does not take a commercial genius or an academic professor to look around at the shrinking middle class and conclude that the lessons of the preverbal business cycle no longer apply.
