    Default Who's ready for another trade deal?

    The conservatives locked in a huge win in the UK, now BREXIT is just a matter of time. How do you expect this to affect manufacturing here in the US and in the UK?

    Maybe China will take a leaf from trumps plan and insist the USA have a national health plan before they let the USA do business with China.

    That's exactly what they will not do, and why over time they will kick US ass. They buy and sell. They don't try to force-feed their suppliers and customers. Like Switzerland, they will take anyone's money.

    You say that now, but what about when the French want in.

    Personally, not much.
    Not much at all.
    In fact, immeasurable.
    Or not that much.

    They will have to deal separately with the President.

    WE have always had a good relationship with UK, so any future trade deal should be straightforward. Physical trade with UK however is really not game changing in volume. UK needs to be more concerned with the EU, as they are going to lose some business as they start changing regulation. EU isn't going to accept 'differently' tested beef or electronics that don't meet[whasat lead spec] and such. WE might have to set up something that as they deviate from EU rules that we are used to we might need to update import policies

    Regarding design legislation for electro mechanical products (talking aerospace here) - no change.
    UK product will still be designed to meet the same industry standards that it currently is, and sold world wide as it currently is.
    Food industry could be different yes - there's the constant talk of the UK having to let the nasty USA chicken in...but we'll wait and see about that.
    Further deregulation of the banks is an option, but whatever happens BoJo and the establishment won't do anything to harm EU relations.
    After all, we won't be out-out, as it's not proper Brexit...

    MAGA changes day to day so any president will follow it some of the time. Build the wall don't build a wall, support coal or don't. He is my close friend and associate or he is a low level flunky I barely know, etc. etc.

    Obahma did not.

    Not even 1% of MAGA.

    His administration was that "the good times are over, never to come back"

    Is that why, once he (and Congress) had got the country past the recession with QE etc., the economy and employment kept growing back steadily at a rate that didn't change even when his successor came into power?

    The endless rounds of QE was the Fed- not the Congress or Obama.

    2016 GDP growth- 1.6%
    2017 GDP growth- 2.3%
    2018 GDP growth-3.1%

    ...

    No, because he said so.
