Nafter

New trade agreements with Mexico

and/or Canada,

 may be named Nafter,

or Nafta after Trump.

It is his obsession to have his name

in all agreements involving the US.

The truth is, the American coffers are empty.

Efforts to fill it up with arms sales, sanctions and tariffs

are not getting the expected results.

America’s infrastructure is in a rut,

er, rot,

and US dollars are getting printed

as fast as the ink holds out.

Wall street stock values are up not because

of the progress of the corporations

but simply because people buy their stocks.

If people sell their stocks,

see how fast the share values go down.

Nafta is  not a rip-off

as Trump says.

 On the contrary  it is the only means

that the US can dump

products to Mexico and Canada.

The excess by which milk is produced in the US

is enough to fill a lake.

And Trump blames Canada for not accepting this excess.

Canada is less populated and produces milk

just enough for consumption.

Canada is also shifting interest to foreign made cars,

like the Mini Cooper.

The US is not that important a trading partner

if Canada starts to look to Cuba

and Venezuela

and Syria

and Russia for trade.

Canada should also consider building oil tankers.

It should also beware of what Trump promises now.

A NAFTER sunset review

is similar to an intimidating

sanction clause.

Any deal with the US should take into consideration

that Trump cannot remain in office

for the next 7 years,

and that there will be less demand

for the USD currency after this.

A business hint would be :

SYRIA will be needing

heavy equipment operators.

(I would rather that Canada terminate NAFTA and let the buyers and sellers do their thing and thereby establishing their own level of business)
