Yes, that's it.

Rich people save their money and collect .5% interest and poor people drive the economy.


I am in fantasy land thinking rich people create jobs.

America's economic hub is in the welfare communities where those EBT cards create wealth.

Out of all the people I've met who believe they are really smart, you might be the most ignorant of all.

Trump to impose tariff on product-dumping Canadians criminally manipulating market with illegal softwood lumber.

softwood lumber has been a long time issue between Canada and the US and isn't something new with Trump.

The issue is basically that most trees in Canada are on publicly owned Crown land and the lumber companies pay the Canadian government to log on those lands. The US says that the Canadian government doesn't charge enough to those companies and that represents an unfair subsidy from the government. Historically the US imposes tariffs prompted from complaints from the US lumber producers. Canada appeals the tariffs to the tribunals set up in our trade agreements and Canada almost always wins. In the mean time lumber prices in the US are higher than they otherwise would be and the prices to build a house in the US is thousands of dollars higher than it needs to be.

Winners - US Lumber Producers

Losers - Canadian Lumber Producers
- Everybody else in the United States since houses and other lumber products become much more expensive than they need to be.

Of course it amounts to a government subsidy and yes, dumped products do indeed result in cheaper products for the American consumer but at the direct expense of American jobs. Save .10 cents on the front side, costs us $1 on the back side (or whatever the ratio is).

Winners: Free Market Economics
Losers: People who hate freedom.

Now you just wait and see what happens when we declare Alberta the 51st State. I'll be able to drive to Calgary without those goddamn Canadian Border Clerks turning me away because of my criminal record.

more jobs for people cutting down trees in the US
less jobs for people building houses or in the companies that manufacture products using wood

remember that there are 25 times more people working in industries that use steel in their products than there are steelworkers making steel in the US for example

Except that house prices are rising due to lack of product meaning soon large house builders will begin large building cycle.
Pretending cost of lumber is the deciding factor in home building is like saying cost of silver determines whether you buy an iPhone.

A few years ago the cost of lumber rose because we were shipping our lumber overseas, because the people there offered more money.

By your logic the government should have put tariffs on lumber sales overseas to keep price for American consumers lower.
