首先庆祝加拿大建国151周年!

 

今天2018年7月1日是加拿大151年国庆日,在举国欢庆的气氛里夹杂着一些跟节日不搭调的元素,就是从今天开始生效加拿大总理宣布对美国给予从加拿大进口到美国的钢铝原材料的关税的反击清单-对于加拿大从美国进口的160种商品的关税上调计划。

刚刚浏览了相关的报道,其中一篇有关的加美贸易战对加拿大人日常生活的影响,值得一读。该文披露了几个很有意思的加拿大总理和美国总统的唇枪舌战,很值得玩味,

The reasons for the tariffs, Trump said, are issues of “national security” and Canada’s “unfair” treatment of our neighbours south of the border. (And when Trudeau prodded him about what those concerns were exactly, Trump reportedly said: “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?”)

Trudeau was uncharacteristically blunt in his response, calling Trump’s comments insulting and foolish. “We have to believe that at some point common sense will prevail, but we see no sign of that with this action today by the U.S. administration,” the PM said in a press conference.

 

从加拿大反击美国贸易战的加税清单来看,跟本人生活直接相关的就两三个:whisky,chocolate, yogurt,再说价格上涨也就个4-5%,没什么大不了的,本人坚决支持加拿大总理针对美国总统的贸易战反击,民调显示绝大多数加拿大人以拒绝购买美国货支持加拿大总理。

不过遗憾的是,加美两国150余年(1812年战争在1815年结束以来)修得的睦邻友好如同一家的关系可能不得不因为美国总统挑起的贸易战蒙上阴影,川普在刚参加完今年在加拿大举办的G7峰会后公然通过推特羞辱加拿大总理开始两人唇枪舌剑的你来我往(有意思的是民调显示超过60%的美国公民和近80%的加拿大人对川普对加拿大总理的人身攻击持反对态度,支持加拿大总统),至于是否会再次burn down the White House,那只有时间才来给出答案,谁都不希望恶化到那一步,但是若是事态失控不得不发展到了那个时候,加拿大人(加拿大民兵)绝不是吃素的(1812年美国企图吞并加拿大,反而被把华盛顿首府烧黑,不得不刷成白色,因此白宫得名)

 

川普为了所谓的美国的“national security”而公然发起对其北邻加拿大的贸易战等同于缘木求鱼,到底川普想干啥呢?

 

以邻为壑,与邻为敌的话,自己每晚睡觉都不得不睁开一只眼呀!

 

难道想在其任期内再次让白宫被burn down 一次吗?那该刷成啥色呢?

1812年战争,又稱第二次獨立戰爭https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/1812%E5%B9%B4%E6%88%98%E4%BA%89,是美國与英國之间发生于1812至1815年的战争。是美国独立后第一次对外战争。1812年,英国在加拿大的正规军只有5,004人,辅以50%兵员加拿大民兵

美国方面陆军正规部队只有不到12,000兵员。开战后,虽然美国国会批准扩军至35,000人,但是士兵多为志愿兵而且民众不热衷行伍,极度缺乏受过正规训练的军官,部队战斗力不足。

这场战争是第一次、目前为止也是唯一的一次,使美国首都曾经被外国军队占领。

2017年,美国对加拿大的出口额高达2824.72亿美元,排名美国所有出口国第一;同年,美国对中国的出口额为1303.70亿美元,不到美国对加拿大出口额的一半。

  2017年,加拿大向美国的出口额为3196.51亿美元,在其所有出口国家当中排名第一;同年,加拿大对中国的出口额为182亿美元,仅为对美出口的5.7%。

  美国和加拿大,互为最大的贸易伙伴,两者彼此高度依赖。而据媒体调查,美国的关税措施,已经让70%的加拿大民众考虑,在选择商品的时候,是否要尽量避开“美国制造”。

 

 

Tensions between U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are on the rise, and it could impact your wallet.http://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstories/here%e2%80%99s-how-you-could-be-affected-by-the-canada-us-tariff-dispute/ar-AAzkJPq?ocid=UE12DHP

On May 31, Trump announced that he was invoking a 25% tariff on Canadian steel imports and a 10% tariff on Canadian aluminum imports, effective June 1. The reasons for the tariffs, Trump said, are issues of “national security” and Canada’s “unfair” treatment of our neighbours south of the border. (And when Trudeau prodded him about what those concerns were exactly, Trump reportedly said: “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?”)

Trudeau was uncharacteristically blunt in his response, calling Trump’s comments insulting and foolish. “We have to believe that at some point common sense will prevail, but we see no sign of that with this action today by the U.S. administration,” the PM said in a press conference. Shortly after, Canada’s Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland announced the Canadian government’s plan to invoke a list of retaliatory tariffs on American goods equal to approximately $16.6 billion, which will come into effect on July 1. In addition to steel and aluminum, the list includes common household goods such as mayonnaise, chocolate, yogurt, maple syrup (LOL we good) and whisky.

Experts say that the total effect of these tariffs on the Canadian economy is “minimal” but what about the effect it will have on the wallets of the average Canadian millennial? We spoke to economist and University of Toronto professor Nicholas Li to break down just how much we might feel these changes.

If you work in the auto industry, your job could get hit

According to thePeterson Institute for International Economics, Trump’s steel and aluminum import tariffs could impact the Canadian economy by a whopping $3.2 billion. It also means that that cities that are heavily reliant on the steel and auto industries—such as Hamilton and Oshawa, Ont.—could be hit with job cuts. “The estimates I’ve seen of effects on Canadian jobs for these steel and aluminum tariffs are around 6,000,” Li says, “which is a lot, but it’s actually quite a small number relative to the total Canadian economy.” Still, with the job market as tough as it already is for millennials, this is bad news.

You may need to switch to vodka

Speaking of bad news, things aren’t looking good for whisky enthusiasts. Specifically, bourbon—a type of whisky made exclusively in the U.S.—could see a significant price increase due to the retaliatory tariffs. “I wouldn’t be surprised if the price of whisky goes up 5 to 10 percent” Li says.

Pampering yourself may get more costly

As “manicure and pedicure preparations” are on the PM’s list of retaliatory tariffs, American-made nail polish, nail brushes and handsoap will rise in price, which means the cost of your bi-weekly self-care sesh just got more expensive. Want to switch to Canadian-made products instead? According to Li, that may not *actually* save you any coin. “You can switch to the Canadian alternatives but, of course, everyone might do that, which will actually bid up the price,” he says. Oh, and stock up on Elnett now, because hair spray is also on the list.

You’re grocery bill may increase, too

According to Karl Littler, vice-president of public affairs at the Retail Council of Canada, Canadians could see the biggest price difference on their grocery bills. He told the Toronto Star that certain affected food items could see a 4–5% increase in price, an estimate that Li agrees with. “The grocery space is pretty competitive, so those companies are only maybe making five, six, seven percent actual profit,” he says, explaining that the grocery chains have little financial wiggle room. “Those relatively small margins mean that a lot of the increase in costs have to be passed onto the consumers.” Food items such as toffee, chocolate, pizza and strawberry jam are all set to be affected, so maybe now is a good time to curb that pesky sweet tooth?

Here's A List Of What Canada's Tariffs Will Hit  http://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstories/here%e2%80%99s-how-you-could-be-affected-by-the-canada-us-tariff-dispute/ar-AAzkJPq?ocid=UE12DHP

As Canada taxes everything from whiskey to cucumbers, the majority of US states could suffer http://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/markets/as-canada-taxes-everything-from-whiskey-to-cucumbers-the-majority-of-us-states-could-suffer/ar-AAzphYU?ocid=UE12DHP

Today, the Canadian government released a long list of US products worth C$16.6 billion ($12.6 billion) that will be subject to new import taxes.

The taxes are a direct response to Donald Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs imposed in May, and will likely directly impact jobs and companies across the US. In 2017, 36 US states counted Canada as their largest export market.

加拿大资源丰富,贸易对外依赖有限,没什么大不了的,川普对加关系的阻力来自美国内部,堂兄弟关系坏不到哪去

也许是人类历史到了一个特殊的节点,和平太久了,二战一来,除过中东的局部冲突以及反恐涉及的一些地区外,1945年至今相对太平无战事,加之科技发达导致的人口暴涨,使得调节人口数量的调节的两大手段-瘟疫和战争的缺位

川普的目的可能只有一个:把美利坚合众国变成川普公司。

你看他上任以来的表现,所有的成绩,也就是让美国部分人民拥护的,都是他作为公司老板的优点带来的;所有的不堪,也就是让美国知识分子和政商精英以及全世界人民杯葛的,恰好都是他不适合当美国总统的弱点招致的。

当美国总统主要是平衡国内各利益集团的利益,世界各国的利益,需要通盘考虑,周密计划。他到好,一个一个来,遇到反弹就回击,打一枪换一个地方。

川普的所谓的私人关系的友好,对俄普京和中习以及北韩的金三来讲,潜台词是把他的总统身份的公务行为跟他的个人身份的一种分离,是为他的家族商业帝国的利益考虑是其一,还有一点就是商人的奸诈和唯利是图的本性的流露。俄中对其早已心领神会并且试图将计就计,曲线的开绿灯给伊万卡和其丈夫的生意照顾来才影响或者削弱川普对其制裁和关税惩罚的力度。川普心里明镜似的,他的总统最长就是8年,俄中朝的三个主以及其子孙可是那所谓的赤色江山的千秋万代的主。
特别讨厌的,搅和的四邻不安你,鸡飞狗跳的,跟个网红似的,你看参加G7后推特上羞辱加拿大总理的言行,真让人大跌眼镜。
