[新闻汇集]阳光灿烂的日子

其实我的消息算不上灵通的,一整天在抱着电脑看花样滑冰,在推上有时看见一些新闻随手转过来而已。大家有兴趣的还请搜主流新闻媒体,是的,就是被骂死的 Main Stream Media,以他们的报道为准。

George Takei's Twitter:
The White House removed its climate change web page. And the healthcare, civil rights and LGBT sections. Just thought you should know.
CNBC Now Twitter:
JUST IN: In one of first Trump admin. orders, Dept of Housing & Urban Dev. suspends reduction of FHA annual mortgage insurance premium rates

白宫网站给 Melania Trump 的珠宝生意打广告:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/pow ... welry-line

White House website promotes Melania Trump’s modeling and jewelry line
By Kelsey Snell January 20 at 3:30 PM
Visitors to the newly revamped White House website get more than a simple rundown of first lady Melania Trump’s charitable works and interests — they also get a list of her magazine cover appearances and details on her jewelry line at QVC.
记得有个朋友说去墨西哥玩时在一家 resort 住,政府工作人员替私营企业打广告做宣传毫无不适感,反而很骄傲。当时她觉得颇惊诧,如此公私不分也可以?怪不得墨西哥制度落后呢。

我觉得 Trump 是一大 distraction,共和党议会在底下继续搞他们的那一套。

气候变化是联合国的阴谋,为了控制各国政府。这现在不是已经被新政府证实贯彻实行了嘛,白宫都把page拿下来了。
我前些天想看看加州干旱状况在今冬的大雨后有无缓解,出来的page又有人表示,根本没有干旱,是政府为了控制民众用水的阴谋。真是皆大欢喜,原来加州不缺水嘛。

是这样,在极右派圈子里广为流传 Sandyhook 屠杀儿童案也是假的,波士顿马拉松爆炸案也是假的,都是政府为了没收我们的枪支把白人群众关进集中营的阴谋借口,还有人跑到 Sandyhook 附近去骚扰受害者家属,指责家长编造出孩子。还有这更无耻的做法吗?

本来在美国极右派小圈子里流传的谣言,现在都传播到中文网络圈里了,我也阴谋论一把,多半背后有黑手操纵,不是个别人自发搞出来的。

让中国开心的好消息,川普正式下令退出 Trans-Pacific Partnership。

http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/23/news/ec ... ump-china/

Trump's decision to kill TPP leaves door open for China
by Charles Riley @CRrileyCNN
January 23, 2017: 1:33 PM ET
On Monday, Donald Trump handed Xi the car keys and threw in a free tank of gas, abandoning the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in one of his first official acts as president.

Trump's decision to jettison the largest proposed free trade deal in history leaves the door open for Beijing to push its own brand of trade in a region that is home to many of the world's fastest-growing economies.
BBC News 有对于TPP的概述:

http://www.bbc.com/news/business-32498715

本来TPP里是没有中国的,现在美国一退,中国和印尼已经站在门口了。

Trump withdraws from Trans-Pacific Partnership amid flurry of orders
President begins effort to dismantle Obama legacy by scrapping trade deal, and reinstates ban on providing federal funding to aid groups that perform abortions

by David Smith
Monday 23 January 2017
The new president also signed executive orders to ban funding for international groups that provide abortions, and placing a hiring freeze on non-military federal workers.
The move also intensified speculation over the future of the 17-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta). There were reports that Trump would sign an executive order on Monday to begin renegotiating terms with Canada and Mexico.
Earlier, Trump met a group of top business leaders including Elon Musk, the head of SpaceX, and the executives from Dell, Johnson & Johnson and Lockheed Martin. He set out plans to cut regulations for businesses in the US and slash the company tax rate from 35% “down to anywhere from 15 to 20%”.
He said companies that moved factories out of the US and then tried to sell their products back to America would be punished with a “very major border tax”.

TPP这种多国贸易体系,我这么看,不一定对:国际贸易,有国顺差了,就得有逆差国兜着。数学等式成立了,体系才能建立。

TPP中的十一国也好,达沃斯一帮子台下坐着的也好,中国也好,都是顺差国。他们人数再多也没用,大家都想顺差,同态竞争,呆一间屋子里时间长了,能互相吃了。需要一个冤大头进来说,我当逆差国,我体量大,你们的顺差我给你们兜着。于是大家齐齐围着叫它大哥。

以前美国当大哥的,现在嚷嚷着不当了,一帮子顺差国急红了眼,寻找替补大哥。我扫了一眼keynote speech,“。。。中国将在未来五年进口八万亿美元的商品和服务。。。”查了一下,2015年中国进口1.58万亿。所以五年八万亿是速度不变的意思,它没打算做逆差国啊!

话说国际贸易多以美元结算,作为一个印不出美元的国家,它想做到贸易上美元逆差也不容易啊。人民币逆差倒是理论上行,那就需要人民币国际化,一环扣一环。。。真要成了,就真做大了。

现在还不行。现在美元顺差的一半来自和美国的贸易,然后拿出其中十分之一搞亚投行,搞一带一路,在号称“帝国坟场”的中亚国家之间当个逆差大哥。一旦和美国的贸易顺差消失了,无水之源,小冤大头也当不成了。

所以TPP没了美国,也没中国啥事。世界贸易体系会怎么样,我也看不出来。大家先在WTO体系里继续混几天?

我也不是经济学家,没有理论基础,不过顺差未必便宜,逆差未必吃亏。我听生意人以及 John Lanchester 说,坐在存大笔现金上不是好事,钱必须流动起来才能赚,不流动的钱就是死的,死的大款仍是死的。美国不贸易,其他国家就不贸易了吗?小规模的贸易也是活的,不一定需要大款撑着。

中国想在世界贸易中占什么地位那就是另一回事了,跟中国做生意,现在成本太高了,人家爱不爱跟你做还难讲。

我没说别的国家就不贸易了,美国不当逆差国也不等于退出国际贸易。

我是说,一堆顺差国,都想着多出口少进口,没法建立一个贸易体系,必须有至少一个逆差国成全它们。

逆差国当然也有好处,但不是谁都想当就当的。

都不需要国际化,中国如果能把人民币在一带一路上培养成硬通货,就可以在中亚一帮小兄弟的环绕下当逆差国。但哪儿那么容易啊,人家精着呢,只认美元。

想象一下美国只出口不进口,或者出口比进口多,会有什么后果 ...

我觉得通货膨胀会爆发。这些年狂印了这么多美钞,感觉就像坐在火药桶上。

美国怎样达到只出口不进口?外国大部分的产品成本低,价格便宜,怎样拦着不让卖进来?只能加关税。你加关税对方会怎样?当然也加关税。美国制造的产品本来就贵,再加关税更没人买了,那怎样出口呢?让美元贬值?

美国如果不积极参与世界贸易了,或者美元刻意贬值了,我不知道其他国家会不会还把美国的国债当黄金一样存起来。

实际上美元已经在过去十几年里默默地贬值了,这一点我听好几个人说起过,但是因为不是在全国范围内贬值而是在世界范围内贬值,所以我们感觉不到。如果不再跟世界分摊通胀,就会 ... I don't know. 目前的 natural experiment 继续进行下去,我们可以亲眼看到 globalization 的效果到底是什么,不知道有没有经济学家跟我一样兴奋地搓着手等着看试验结果。

----------------

目前 TPP 的国家是顺差国,这是相对于美国来说的。美国抽掉了,他们彼此之间的贸易则是有顺有逆,有买有卖,建立贸易联盟或许不会立刻发财,但未必没有细水长流的好处,所以我觉得小生意也有小生意的做法,不是一定要做大卖大。

----------------

中国做了很多年的顺差国,积累了大量的“财富”以美国国债的形式存在。就是说,中国通过卖东西赚了很多钱,但这些钱没有很快以高效率地花出去/投入更大的生产,而是存了起来。这是好事吗?Hmm... 实际上如果中国花掉一些储存的“财富”去买越南柬埔寨生产的产品,或许可以降低一些通胀的压力,而提高的生产力也可以提高中国借贷的能力,让更多的钱流动起来。

其实说到底还是一个成本的问题,不许在便宜的地方开厂,只能在昂贵的地方生产,那成本就高了呗。成本高,价格就上去了呗。所以就 。。。通胀了呗。。。 :party003:

No shit! He is actually going to build that WALL. paid by US Tax . Which he doesn't pay. Am I living in an alternative universe/reality show?


President Trump has signed two executive actions related to immigration and border security, moving ahead with his plans to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and to deport people who are in the country without documentation.

嗯,还有一个是禁止穆斯林(包括美国公民的spouse)入境,未入境的签证一律作废,还要通过一个狗屁"Values Test"!

造墙大概要十来个比林吧。美国人民该花这个冤枉钱。我不怪川普。造吧造吧,这么奇异的时势,不留点物理痕迹怎么行呢?

投票选举是有后果的,正如 Brexit 的投票结果。那些不情不愿地投了川普,那些投了 Gary Johnson 和 Jill Stein 的人民,都得跟着大家一起 suffer the consequences. 川普和 Theresa May 都履行诺言说到做到,撑到 the bitter end,并没有人会从天而降来拯救我们。

Trump’s Voter Fraud Example? A Troubled Tale With Bernhard Langer
By GLENN THRUSH JAN. 25, 2017
On Monday, President Trump gathered House and Senate leaders in the State Dining Room for a get­to­know­you reception, served them tiny
meatballs and pigs­in­a­blanket, and quickly launched into a story meant to illustrate what he believes to be rampant, unchecked voter fraud.
Mr. Trump said he was told a story by “the very famous golfer, Bernhard Langer,” whom he described as a friend, according to three staff members who were in the room for the meeting.

The three witnesses recall the story this way: Mr. Langer, a 59­ year ­old native of Bavaria, Germany — a winner of the Masters twice and of more than 100 events on major professional golf tours around the world — was standing in line at a polling place near his home in Florida on Election Day, the president explained, when an official informed Mr. Langer he would not be able to vote. Ahead of and behind Mr. Langer were voters who did not look as if they should be allowed to vote, Mr. Trump said, according to the staff members — but they were nonetheless permitted to cast provisional ballots. The president threw out the names of Latin American countries that the voters might have come from.

Mr. Langer, whom he described as a supporter, left feeling frustrated, according to a version of events later contradicted by a White House official.
The anecdote, the aides said, was greeted with silence, and Mr. Trump was prodded to change the subject by Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, and Senator John Cornyn, Republican of Texas.

Just one problem: Mr. Langer, who lives in Boca Raton, Fla., is a German citizen with permanent residence status in the United States who is, by law, barred from voting, according to Mr. Langer’s daughter Christina.

“He is a citizen of Germany,” she said, when reached on her father’s cellphone. “He is not a friend of President Trump’s, and I don’t know why he would talk about him.”

移民局开始到硅谷公司的HR检查H1的合法性了。我觉得太超现实,还没觉得恐慌。
我也支持筑墙。多折腾折腾,就只需要最多忍trump四年了。二战结束时美国是很谦虚的,做了几十年超级大国越来越自大狂。造吧。

langer 的故事令我无言以对……一个白种德国人竟然不能在美国大选投票,太让KKK们不爽了……

能入籍的赶紧入籍吧,绿卡和H1都是可以随时作废的。穆斯林国家的签证不就刚刚作废了么?华人川粉以为自己是合法拿工签跟他们非法移民不一样的,希望他们开心。

Abby Phillip, reporter at WashPost, tweeted:
News on AF1: Spicer says Trump has decided to pay for the wall with a 20 percent tax on imports as part of overall tax reform.
LBC Breaking News twitter:
Nigel Farage is urging Theresa May to apologise to Donald Trump for what's been said about him in Britain - when she meets him tomorrow.

我也有同样的问题啊,关税他能说加就加么?不是有各种贸易协定WTO 来限制么?
素食男今天更加宽范的问我,他的行政权力没有限制么?美国政体里的check and balance都怎么了?我回答说国会两院都在共和党手里。打官司一路拼到最高法院太慢...

我昨天也在研究Executive Order. 貌似不需要通过两院,等于是下命令家里人不许跟外人乱讲话(govt agency不可以乱用twitter),造墙,Visa等不是法律只是如何运作政府机构。但是给sanctuary city撤钱的事情地方政府可以告,纽约市AG已经威胁要告了。
Image
造墙拨款也得要通过两院,所以这个20%进口税的事情没那么简单。

我现在有点幸灾乐祸,有史以来独裁掌权都是悄悄进村,温水煮青蛙,就是怕激起民愤。现在Orange overlord这么作死,怎么看都不会有好结果啊!几千年的人性不可能到美国这里不好使了吧?在脸书上已经有人预测会有天安门事件了。想想真的呢,这个Scientists March on Washington的游行有可能激发学运啊!接下来怎么办?真的上坦克啊?!

还有就是华盛顿邮报,纽约时报,Vanity Fair 订购率从大选以来都上升了。我们一直害怕的正经的investigative reporting会被网络大众取代的噩梦反倒因为这次的选举结果被逆转了。我们现在都看清楚GOP的宗旨是什么了。social media的神话泡沫也爆掉了。我甚至都看穿了某些民主党人比方D. Feinstein的嘴脸,下次坚决不会选她了。我发现了我是那么的喜欢Stephen Colbert, 和SNL里面的Weekend Update. 连奥巴马都在最后的最后给Manning 减了刑。如果这次川普没赢,我们还不会意识到民主有多么的脆弱,也许会继续被温水煮青蛙下去,结果也许更糟。对吧?奥巴马说,It it not the end of the world until the end of the world. 所以还是有希望的。
