The Sublime Logic of Tariffs

Tariffs are like emotional relationships.

Whether married to mutual political ideals or just hanging tight with each other. Tariffs can mirror the quality and trust in relationships between countries. It examples in friendly politics between two sovereigns, as with Canada and the US. And like BFF moments, good tariffs foster fair and beneficial trade relationships that can support balanced economies and political maturity.

Of course, having common borders is the sweet spot.

NAFTA alliances share borders, language, fosters easy migration of labor forces and seamless integration of products and services. Born over time such economic relationships like this thrive. But then heartbreakingly examples like Brexit challenges that premise.

Even to the most ambitious finance/economist the relationships that energize tariff agreements is complex.

It’s true. We owe China a lot of money. So, give thought to the reasonings in how sublime satisfaction in negotiating good trade deals in exchange of goods and services, is a mighty influencer to how you do business. Think Shades of Mid Continental Nail.

If you’re a goods producer reliant on the smallest alterations in price of off-shore raw goods or exchange rates. This behavior deviance will change your bottom line or unit price increases to customers. Also consider this. Contractual agreements governing digital services are altered when mirroring exchange rate conversions that govern cross border intellectual property partnerships.

This is the perfect time to enlist BCSContent to evaluate change influencers and produce compelling digital media for your business.

 

Curving the Arc of European Politics and Yanis Varoufakis by Barbara Cerda #politics #Varoufakis, #EU

Something awesome happened during the period of the Greek economic crisis. Through the angst of monetary collapse, the nascent politics of FM Yanis Varoufakis’ came to be. It was a quiet emergence from a womb of bitter contention. Everyone understood that the Greeks were getting a raw deal. It was a matter of signing on the dotted line for that balloon payment that came due far to quickly. Fairness be damned, what creditors agree to renegotiate in the favor  debtors?

An unnoticed uprising found its voice in the oft time boisterous but very handsome Yanis Varoufakis. Compelling because he’s smart and a rebel.

Compelling because he’s the elegant eloquent professor of a new Greece… the conscripted soldier of an economic over throw. His army is growing in the face of another upstart or …. a reawakened conservative movement. They are an opposing force, bound to collide.  I think the outcomes will shape global economic futures. The BRICS will have to rethink trading agreements. FANG will become toothless in its formation of trading partners. And why you say? The monetary influencers, regulators, will focus on the biggest economic engine gaining steam, a politically mature and stable EU.

Led by Angela Merkel, the EU is growing in governmental and economic power. Even immersed in partisanship, the Germany collective mind is centric and owns sovereign pride. And it’s the leader of a block of countries that are economically united. Pinching one… the group yells ouch.

There’s a growing need within the populace of Europe to resist embracing the idiocies of the singularity in religions and the politics of “the other”. Neither mindset serves the greater purpose to increase power by way of sound economics and GDP growth.

This type mindset is heresy and is slowly eating at the economic marrow of the current global influencer, the United States. While Americans have allowed the corrosive politics to consume its confidence and economy, Europe is coming into its own. Professor Varoufakis gets this. And has preached this for over a decade. Now the young and liberal are excruciatingly slowly growing into a new European state.

The oligarchs of corrupted wealth are gazing nervously in their rearview mirrors.

Whether intentional, intuitive, or just the product of a financial upheaval, Varoufakis has become the leading nemesis of passé’ oligarchs. The Greek socio-economists has become the emerging leader in a world facing melting borders and monetary shifts.

Coupled with America and the UK’s tumble down the rabbit hole of sectarianism, the EU culture gains control. It’s becoming the stronger influencer of financial exchanges and sovereign border agreements.

DIEM24 is his love child.

Genuine politics is a powerful art. The owner of that talent wields global outcomes. In my opinion, a reconfiguration of global wealth can be anticipated… it’s a given. And history will note that SYRIZA versus Varoufakis was its impetus.
