The fear of a trade war is finally hitting Wall Street...

It took a lot to convince them that Trump would follow through on a trade war with no plan. But they're getting it now.

Maybe we all need a kick in our complacency, especially Canada.
We need to get all our resources to the international market, despite what all the tree huggers say.
We also need to reduce the taxes we impose on ourselves (Canada) to adjust for the impact of Tariffs.

This sounds like "Make Canada great again." to me (see "hewers of wood and drawers of water"). In the short term, if Trump screws up NAFTA and the auto sector we're in recession. But we should double down on focusing on the jobs of the future, especially green jobs.

As long as trade wars doesn't affect the Weed markets I am fine with them bickering over silly things.

The panic won't really begin until the combination of inflation and reduced output sets in - I'd say August at the earliest.

This won't take so long. Corporate earning season is here and then they do those pesky prognosis.

Ask me how I did in 2008. I retired early rather than becoming the point man on strategy in a billion dollar public company.

How did you do in 2008?

It's good to hear here from the pro's but in this I would rather follow my estimate than yours since yours is more optimistic than mine.

We'll see in a month or two who's more right, I'd bet on you.

Thankfully we were a smaller private multinational at the time. I did get the market right though - I was 95% cash then, I'm 95% cash now. We may agree more than you think. The only hope I see is that Republicans in Congress will grow a spine and bring this narcissistic prick to heel. He is only fomenting this trade war because he can.

They tried, and Corker had a fit on the Senate floor even about growing a spine. They got nothing, and they know it! That's the most beautifully fucked up detail in this all: they ducking know what will happen. I don't know how they're going to spin this on the democrats and canada but that will start soon.

People way more connected than I have estimated that this drop will make the 2008 crisis look like a memory since this time around the political fundamentals are completely fucked too.

Not sure what “green jobs” you’re referring to, or how they will build a robust Canadian economy.

"...Narcissistic prick to heel..." you say !!! ...perhaps true, yes, but the pot should never call the kettle black...

Hell, you guys eat fried beavertail and drink LeBatt Blue, buy your milk in plastic bags, put cheese curds on top of fries, eat poutine and oreilles de crisse, refuse to accept our pennies as currency, torment your children with Angela Anaconda, have, at best, hazy prostitution laws, think you invented superman (no one invented Superman, I tell you) and didn't have a national flag until the mid 1960's?

HA!!

All that said, and contrary to Lups' known hatred for Canadians. I love our Canadian experiment.
