Let’s Talk About Blaming China

The president likes to blame China for everything these days. From Corona to trade China is the world’s bad guy. Learn more in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Pandemics Can Turn Into Revolutions

First of all pandemics have a way of triggering once in a lifetime revolutions and war.

Trump’s Internal Polling

Especially relevant is the president’s recent internal polls. Currently his own polling shows Trump in trouble in battleground states.

Signs Of Trouble For Republicans

Even more republicans are starting to question Trump’s initial response to the Corona-Virus Pandemic. Especially since this is what is hurting the leader of the Republican party. Most noteworthy are signs of trouble in must win House and Senate races for Republicans.

Change The Subject

Seems like the old political saying, “If you don’t like what the media’s talking about change the subject” is the order of the day.

Blame China

Certainly China seems like a convenient scapegoat. No one likes a Tyranny, right?

Stealing Our Jobs, Letting Corona Loose, Buying Our Debt

Even more China is blamed for stealing US Jobs, cooking up the Corona Virus in a lab and letting it loose. Similarly lately China’s been blamed for feathering presumed Democratic Candidate Joe Biden’s nest and a host of military incursions and threats. Finally for ‘owning all our debt’, not true by the way.

Time To Talk About China

As a result it’s time to talk about China. We do in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Trade and World History If You Can Stand It

Hence in one place a little history of trade in the world. In addition a little history of Taiwan and Mainland China.

US History On Trade Too

Finally some discussion of our own history on trade, commercial espionage, and trade protection.

How Do We Meet The Challenge

Above all China is a challenge to the United States. How we handle the challenge will not only determine the future of China and the US, but our character.

Weak Minds Need Not Apply

For that reason it’s necessary to say leadership that has proven to be weak minded, bellicose without cause or unpredictable will not fare well in this environment.

Food for thought

What Is A Tariff Anyway?

Finally someone has defined what a tariff is. Moreover you might be surprised to learn the history of trade legislation in the United States goes back to 1789.

These days we are awash in charges and counter charges in the media. Trade Wars and Rumors of Trade Wars. This kind of coverage doesn’t serve anyone.

1945 Looms Large In Trade Discussions

Most noteworthy is the impact of World War 2 and the advent of nuclear weapons in 1945. Since then, trade deals have been  considered central to keeping the peace and stabilizing the world.

Trade Has Been A Political Football since Hamilton

Trade has been regional and national issue in the United States in every political era. None other than Alexander Hamilton was an advocate of high taxes on imports going back to 1789.

NAFTA China Mercantilism Free Trade

We hear so much in the news about trade but few of us understand it. China. NAFTA. Mercantilism. Trade Protection. Free Trade. As citizens we need to make informed decisions about what is best for each of us individually and the country. With all the noise about trade it’s almost impossible for people to do that.

Especially Relevant Today As It Was Back In The Day

In conclusion with yet another new trade bill in the offing the question of whether the US should protect its markets or open them is as relevant today as it was in 1789.

Father Son Discuss Universal Basic Income In USA-Podcast 700

Hard to believe I have done 700 podcasts. I can’t think of a better guest for podcast 700 than my son. Join us in Father Son Discuss Universal Basic Income In USA-Podcast 700.

Father And Son Don’t Do Small Talk

Andrew Davis has his own You Tube Channel and is working in TV in New York City. Both father and son have always shared an interest in issues. We don’t do small talk.

Universal Basic Income

The City of Stockton California has recently voted to give citizens a universal basic income.

A no strings attached check from the government every month

Father and son discuss the issue and more in Father Son Discuss Universal Basic Income In USA-Podcast 700.

Growing Up In A Media Family

Andrew was raised in the fun and chaos of a media family. Dad did radio. Mom did TV. When he started showing interest we were concerned, since we knew the chaos of working in media.

In addition, with him growing up in edit bays and radio studios we really weren’t surprised. Friends said, “What did you expect him to do?” Consequently discussion of his career choice takes up the first part of Father Son Discuss Universal Basic Income In USA-Podcast 700.

Podcaster and You Tuber Discuss “The Side Hustle”

Learning how to podcast and do a You Tube channel from the ground up is no small feat. My son is now working in television in New York City which gives him time and resources to devote to what he calls his ‘side hustle‘. The Millennial Project YouTube Channel.

These days Andrew’s talking about something called A Universal Basic Income. Both right wing and left wing politicos are talking about a government provided basic income.

Misconceptions about trade and Artificial Intelligence and Robotic production terrify the working men and women of this country. What’s more, populist politicians may use the Universal Basic Income to leverage votes in key districts and states in the next presidential election and perhaps before.

Get a leg up. Watch The Millennial Project video here and listen to Father Son Discuss Universal Basic Income In USA-Podcast 700 to find out more about this issue.
