While I agree completely that such markups are insane and unnecessary, I don't think the people applying them really care. They're not going to decrease profits simply because Trump tells them to, they'll move completely before they do that. Manufacturing their goods in the US may be morally right, but it would hurt their international market incredibly, which is something they'll avoid at all costs. The US may be their biggest single market, but its not the only one they need to account for.

Then good luck keeping your costs within reason when you move your business to China and have to put up with a high import Tariff. It would kill all your reason to move out of the country. The US is the biggest market there is unless you count the ENTIRE EU, and even then it's close. Why put up with lower worker efficiency, and prices for the extra shipping when you now also have to put up with a massive import tariff, on top of Americans semi boycotting (some consumers won't buy Chinese products, some will) foreign products? It would end up being much more financially sound to move businesses back to the US. Once they're back here, they'll pull jobs away from the service sector and back into manufacturing, which makes the demand for labor higher in America, which will alleviate many of the problems facing undervalued workers in the U.S. You won't have to raise the minimum wage because if you're worth anything your company will pay you what you're worth.
#89 - imbehindu (05/01/2016) [-]
Manufacturing goods in China is far more worthwhile than in the US, because even if worker efficiency is a quarter of what it is in the US your costs are still halved. China is the largest single market, the EU is the most valuable, and throwing up import tariffs will only start a trade war that would fuck everything up, tariffs are a 2 way street and are frowned upon thoroughly, the US can't just abandon the Washington consensus and decide that because they're the US everything will be ok. A trade war with China is far too great a thing for either party to come off well from it.

The only thing that the Chinese have that we want is rare earth elements. And they gouge us for those anyways.

We WANT China because they make things cheaper, but China NEEDS us because we are their economy.
#92 - imbehindu (05/01/2016) [-]
You'll lose every export you could ever have sent them, you lose every good they sell you. Even if it were only short term, the suffering that would cause wouldn't be worth it. You're not China's only market, they sell to the planet.
#80 - tjubox (05/01/2016) [-]
Well, then it's up to the company to decide whether a 35% import tarriff is more cost efficient than moving manufacturing. For example, even though the iPhone has 40% market share in the US, 70% of the world's iPhones are sold in the US. That's the beauty of the system, corps will be free to make their own choices.

Not really talking about Trump I was just curious about the whole Mexican-Terrorism thing. In my ignorance I intermediately jumped to the "current terrorism" issue, and I was just baffled for a moment.

Whether or not Trump gets elected and decides to do the whole Great Wall of Taco it is impossible to tell. So, wth, right now it doesn't really matter...

Nah, is good. But from what I've read around, the USA will be pretty two-faced if they attack Mexico that way, given that a huge deal of the weapons drug cartels use, do come from the States. Hell, I even read a case were the USA sold weapons to the cartels as a "inside plot", to catch some big fishes, but it failed dramatically: not only they didn't catch shit, they did ended up giving thousands of weapons to this cartels.

So yeah, if this is true (and lets face it, it wouldn't be the first time the USA arms its enemies), then we can say that attacking Mexico for aiding terrorism would be a pretty douche move... hasn't stopped the 'States from doing it before, anyways.
#43 - tjubox (05/01/2016) [-]
Yeah, that is a good argument, but this my well endowed daddyistration has so many fuck-ups similar to that operation ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATF_gunwalking_scandal ), that I am surprised the officials can even continue breathing and haven't accidentally suffocated due to their own stupidity yet.
Also, I don't really see what this has to do with Trump. He is not part of the government (yet) and has no influence to effect change (also yet). Once there is a change in my well endowed daddyistration come January, there will also be a change in policy.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say the absolute main point:
Some of the families still get involved in gangs regardless of the funds sent, and use the dollars to buy weapons, ammo and other things to arm themselves. This is the direct reason the Don was talking about when he said to freeze the transactions. Why a complete freezing? Well, there are billions of dollars being sent every year, with most of the transactions being under $1000, so it is logistically impossible to audit and track every individual transaction, so a flat ban is the most efficient solution.

All that is gonna do is strain relations with Mexico and they could easily do the same to us...Not only that but please, tell me, how would a wall help? Every border person that has been interviewed has stated that, "Build a thirty foot wall, thirty-one foot ladders are going to be sold out." And most illegals come in due to expired visa's and disappearing, not by illegally crossing the border....The wall just seems dumb if you sit down and think about it more and more.
#52 - imbehindu (05/01/2016) [-]
You know that while salaries will go up in the US and the unemployment rate will go down, goods will become far more expensive meaning you get inflation and decreased exports. There's no simple solution. Any industry in the US that relies on exports becomes far less competitive, goes bankrupt and has to fire all of their staff. Then you're back to square one
#69 - tjubox (05/01/2016) [-]
While I agree with you to some extent that there is no simple solution, creating jobs will make a net boost to the economy, because it's better for 50% of the population to be able to buy a 100$ product due to their salaries than it is for 35% of the population to buy the same product at $80 due to unemployment. Also, I think you're forgetting that some of the products have insane profit margins and the companies don't really need a 300-500% markup on their products (such as Apple).

Do you not know about the drug cartels?
User avatar
#49 - gigaidan (05/01/2016) [-]
Of course I know. But as I said, considering current trends, when I read "aiding terrorism" I though about the whole Al Qaida/ISIS terrorism.

I do know that there are many terrorist groups around the World, all of them with seemingly different agendas (but all of them equally full of shit, though). It was just a brain fart
#40 - tjubox (05/01/2016) [-]
Don't worry mane, it ain't even my continent, but let me expand a bit:
Basically, the dollars sent to the families can be used to purchase things in Mexico. Some of these things include drugs. By sending money to their families, they are enabling the status quo of cartel rule over the northern border and preventing people from earning their own living.
Of course, there are some exceptions (like old/disabled family members), but you can find a lot of examples online where the family is spending the dollars on frivolous shit. It's basically an international welfare system being let to exist for the purpose of convenience, instead of boosting the local economies.

Sorry if the reply was a bit on the long side.
