While Trump threatens Mexico with wall/immigrant blockade/trade war, Mexico & EU reach historic deal


Mexico and the European Union have reached a trade deal that virtually eliminates tariffs.

Officials appeared to take a jab at US President Donald Trump's policies in statements praising the Mexico-EU deal as a defense of "open" and "rules-based" trade.

"Mexico and the EU worked together and reached a mutually beneficial outcome," said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. "We did it as partners who are willing to discuss, to defend their interests while at the same time being willing to compromise to meet each other's expectations."

The deal marks a move by Mexico to pivot away from its reliance on trade with the United States.

11. That's the GOP: move backward toward the good ole industrial revolution age



The September 1906 edition of Cosmopolitan magazine recounts a story once told of an old Native American chieftain. The chieftain was given a tour of the modern city of New York. On this excursion, he saw the soaring heights of the grand skyscrapers and the majesty of the Brooklyn Bridge. He observed the comfortable masses gathered in amusement at the circus and the poor huddled in tenements. Upon the completion of the chieftain’s journey, several Christian men asked him, “What is the most surprising thing you have seen?” The chieftain replied slowly with three words: “little children working.”

6. European manufacturers who are in the USA will now move to Mexico.

Cheaper wages and no tariffs.

Kiss those Mercedes and BMW plants goodbye.

12. Lemme guess ...

A new iteration of third world labor for first world luxuries. And the spiral just keeps tightening. How far can it go before it breaks?

It really is going just like Marx said. He was like a political Nostradamus. I wish the tabloids would get with it and put Marx's "prognostications" on the front page already (OK, not really). NO ONE's analysis has been more accurate.

People, we are in for turbulence.
