    Why Trump Is Bad for Business

    Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne,--
    Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown,
    Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

    Whatever the ultimate result of the trade war, this regime uncertainty is devastating.

    No one's making major geography-linked investments until they know where they can manufacture at the lowest cost.

    China?

    Vietnam?

    India?

    Who the hell knows at this point?

    ...and no, it's not likely to be the US in any case.

    Business hates uncertainty- and Trump Trade wars have greatly increased uncertainty. That leads companies to invest less in the future and hire fewer new workers. That does not include the higher costs some companies face due to tariffs on goods/ inputs they buy from outside the US.
