“Wider still and wider may thy bounds be set…”
Flat trade growth is not an emergency. Prices are down; that may be a disturbing signal but also a great incentive (unless govts muck it up)
Still, these are merch. trade only. Services (=18% of AU volumes) boosted momentum of total ex. vols & vals in 2015 twitter.com/sdonnan/status…
Summer 2016 cd. be equally fraught, but that summer trans-Atlantic aviation, talkies & television first appeared. Maybe R. Gordon is right.
Just finished Bill Bryson”s “One Summer: America 1927″. Great fun. Fabulous pageant. Still, more Bosch than Breughel.
If GBR votes Thurs to #remain, will the EU thank them? Hah! Are you kidding? They’ll be punished at every turn “pour encourager les autres…”
Could this be a trade deal both candidates and Congress might actually like!? twitter.com/snlester/statu…
snlester I don’t know if the UK will leave the EU, but if it does, the UK/US should quickly negotiate a trade deal to reduce/eliminate tariffs.
@BaldwinRE Decades, it’s true. But it was new technology in early 1980s. Much faster — and less costly — now.
Not on this, Brian. AU already has one RTA incl. VN (AAFTA) and one still to come (TPP). UK a top investor, market. twitter.com/brianmlucey/st…
AU should propose an FTA with GBR on the same terms as NZ (trade, investment, competition, labor movement) to begin the day after #Brexit
