US taxes has nothing to do with trade imbalance.

But there is so much attention paid to a relatively minor problem and none give to the main problem
to the USA economy, that being welfare for the very rich in the form of low taxation on them.

The trade imbalance is only a small problem blown out of all proportion to divert the public's attention
to more serious problems in the USA. It also conveniently places blame on China instead of addressing
the problems at home.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Trump's deficit figure is misleading; it does not include trade in services in which the US has surplus with China, such as tourism, education!

US taxes are low relative to those in other developed countries. In 2015, US taxes at all levels of government represented 26 percent of GDP, compared with an average of 34 percent of GDP for the 34 member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).


Like I said, taxes have nothing to do with the trade imbalance. But it is time for the US to crank up the tariffs a notch.

Donald Trump is doing a hell of a good job. The shrill opinions offered in these columns prove it.

You speak with forked tongue; in a previous post you made it clear you didn't want Trump to be your President, for obvious reasons, and now you praise him to the sky!  What game are you playing?
