Tariffs. All the Wall Street jackasses have been looking at each other like "eh, nobody could be *that* stupid, right? Keep up the buying." Now that it's becoming clear that, yes, in fact, someone is that stupid, and he gets to control the economy until his party sacks up and forces him in line, they're going to freak.
Market undulations are not the economy. The tariffs have the potential to do serious damage, but Wall Street throwing a hissy fit isn't the same thing, and may even be the lever that lifts those tariffs. If they are lifted before the next congress, I don't even see any damage to international relations, certainly none that won't evaporate with the next administration.
The big issue is in a market like China. It took American business and farmers decades to get strong penetration in the market. There's decent potential that replacement of things like American soy with Brazilian soy will take years to regain lost share.

In America, we don't wear t-shirts with flags of .... American territories.

The most surprising thing is that Irizarry's brother didn't get arrested for hassling the old dude.

If it goes, it's never coming back. Once the constituency is dead, the drive to subsidize will go with it, and we won't be able to beat Brazil's prices.

Luis Arroyo Jr., a Cook County Board Commissioner said he felt the officer “did not do his duty.”

“And I will not accept anything else but this officer’s termination,” Arroyo said.
