America soes not use rare earth metals much. But they are used to manufacture products in China sent to USA. There are productive mines for Rare Earth metals in USA but were closed due to environmental concerns.

Historically when America cannot find a reserve needed the ingenious engineers find a better and cheaper replacement . Necessity is the mother of invention.

Brian Wilson been fighting anxiety demon most his life. An interesting story so look it up. He was a shut in for many years and an unethical doctor pushed constant drugs on him. Along with great crative talent comes the ability to creat your own fears. Get well and follow your passions as hopefully you don't need the touring money by now.

Hypochondriacs have it EZ today :) My dad was what I jokingly called the healthiest hypochondriac in the world. Everytime he had symptoms he would read medical books and what he might have. Many times he went to doctors. Luckily he went to top docs cause many would recomend uneeded treatments and surgery that just might hurt him more than help.

Trump wants long overdue equal access to all markets . Ceremony and ego pumping will not matter. The grand 1 way trade days are over. Pendulum swings to new world competition instead of global parasitism .

Posted in: Is there a way out of the U.S.-China trade fight? See in context

Perhaps it's time to shift production to smaller countries to get chance to grow like China. Anything China makes could also be made in cheaper cost countries like Philippines , Vietnam , Cambodia , Taiwan , Korea , and even Japan. lets give others a chance at rapid growth and bring some back to USA also.

Much of world now aging populations. Migration to cities and career changes . China will have big problem caused by 1 child and that being male child most often. Females empowered while many males never will marry unless they have success enough to venture outside China to find bride. This is world of Demographics and new economy. Look up "Harry Dent Economy" he addresses much on economic changes but not on social changes you will see in next 10 years

Posted in: U.S. seeks quick deal on tariff cuts with Japan See in context

Although Japan buys very few US autos Japan does manufacture most autos sold in USA in USA. In many cases Japanese autos have more USA content than what are considered domestic autos. Think overall a win win on Japan trade but some improvements should be made as many Japanese consumers would buy US products if no so heavily taxed.

Posted in: U.S. auto dealers worry Trump will impose tariffs on imported cars See in context

Most Japanese cars are built in USA. Toyota vehicles actually have more USA content that most domestic cars as big 3 build in Mexico and Brazil. Europe will have to worry but they also build many models in USA.

BMW X5 X3 and MB C series , Hyundai also builds in USA. So note if they can build in USA and export to other countries know US labor is quite cost effective.
