    But annual trade deficits are always of some net detriment to their nation’s gross domestic production, (GDP). Lesser GDP indicates lesser jobs and wages than otherwise.

    [Regarding President Trump’s tariffs?]: I’m among the proponents of the improved trade policy described in Wikipedia’s “Import Certificates” article, Import certificates - Wikipedia .

    I consider it superior to pure free trade and to tariff policies, Respectfully, Supposn
    Why do businesses involved in trade complain about foreign practices when corporate welfare is alive and well in the US?

    Great example of what I was talking about. Believe me, you're anything but "demure."

    (I figure you won't get this so I'll explain: You meant to use the word "demur," but chose "demure," which has a different meaning entirely.)
    Annoy Russia. Vote Democrat.

    hey, you are right; it got past the spell checker again. I really do, demur.

    4.5% Q4 2009

    Calling Trump's unnecessary and destructive trade war a "win" is laughable. We're paying $28 billion to citizens hurt by Trump's tariffs, more than double what we paid to the auto industry to bail them out in 2008-9. And that was a loan, not a straight payment like for the damage by the trade war. The uncertainty cause by the US suddenly and for no good reason throwing up significant tariff walls has cause a decline in business investment and an economic headwind. The world trading regime will take decades to regain its balance, if ever.

    The article you link to in no way supports the Trump boast about the best-ever economy. The article reads to me like it's (subtly) making fun of Trump's silly boast.
    I'm aware of those quarters and that even with them Obama's average GDP was 1.5%, about half of Trumps average.

    I'm also aware that there were no Obama policies that improved the economy. Cheap fuel form Fracking , that Obama opposed, was the single biggest reason we had any growth at all during his time.

    "a decline in business investment and an economic headwind" I guess you haven't been paying attention to the Market, wage growth, job growth.

    Right now we have the highest the highest economic & consumer confidence in 50 years. It's a good thing most Americans disagree with your Opinions.

    Standards of living must improve with any increase in market participation and a multiplier effect of Two or more.
    Why would anyone believe that is jibberish without any valid rebuttal? Simply claiming it is jibberish is a fallacy.

    Being descriptive about what? My argument? He needs a valid rebuttal not just ad hominems. It is called, being doctrinal not just full of fallacy.
