Japanese Trade Deal & Antitrust Shaking Alphabet?



Trade hopes with China continue to stay on shaky ground, but the U.S. is now looking to another Asian country to boost trade. Richard Wolff of the Economic Update lends us a hand to break down the new trade deal with Japan, and how markets have been reacting on renewed trade optimism. Plus, as antitrust concerns have heated up, one major tech giant has made some major moves. TG Watkins of Simpler Trading joins the show to sift through Google’s recent shakeup. Then later, there is a new space race underway, but maybe not in the old school sense. RT correspondent Natasha Sweatte show us how companies are racing to launch their own space exploration projects.

The founders have served the elites well and are no longer need, just like Howard Hughes. The old elites will never let the upstarts get a foot hold.

What is exactly the purpose of the G8 summit? What are the talks about if the u.s is constantly sanctioning countries?

When the u.s. fails to balance it's own economy, the rest of the world does our government's job for us. Sad and beautiful, pathetic and glorious. Fun times and absolutely awful unbearable times. Chaos has caught up with humanity, time to die humanity 🙂 What will we become?

Multilateral Deals only favor USA so they have objection on One on One Deals that other Nations enter into and more so without US knowledge of the finer points .

Japan trade deals? There is no such thing since Japan is in deep debt just like the U.S are in. Japanese just wants to move its debt burden to other Asian country especially South East Asia regions to hold that burden So Japanese can continue with its developing advancement politically under the disguise of U.S Hegemon in Asia/Pacific.

Is this guy an actual professor? If so I pity his students. “China is the economic envy of the world?” Let’s pretend the roles were reversed and he was on air saying America was the economic envy of the world and the communist party was clueless. He’d have a lot of time to reconsider his ideology when they threw him in a re-education camp. Not that our crony capitalist parasitical system is good for the majority of the populace, but at least it has a modicum of freedom for a larger percentage of the population compared to China.

But Russia and China are also doing one-on-one bilateral deals, so why should not the US?

JCst
Guest

But the products and needs of each country are different and unique for each, so that in terms of negotiating a deal is more maximized if done bilaterally.

The US never went to the Moon, so how are they going to return there? The tech now is not capable of taking people to the Moon and it certainly was not in the 1960's Its all none sense.

If Trump's proxies and friends know what is to be said, then they have insider knowledge. Good info = Buy. Band info = Sell. This is Trumps hidden goldmine.

There is no reason for a one on one "deal" or better, trade agreement, to be any less valuable than the TPP.

don't get why Trump is tariffing all these goods. American companies and people importing the goods pay the tax. thats the only logical explanation as to why Trump is putting tariffs, to levy taxes. Chinese goods are still going to be lower than American goods, and judging by the the looks of things made in USA hasn't made a comeback. Hes fooling his base by doing this it makes it look like he's fighting the globalist
