Maybe people will think twice next time who/what they vote for? Nah, they won't.

Nothing really changed with this stupid US - China tradewar. Sellers/manufacturers still overprice same way they did before, only now they use tariffs/taxes/customs as an excuse to explain it to common folk.
US probably didn't realize, China could well place export tariffs/taxes/what ever themselves on exports to US, good luck then. They have big enough sales elsewhere, even domestically.

All this did was not support the creation of new businesses or jobs in US and raised/justified prices for existing products.

One gotta wonder who's pulling the strings behind that puppet.

"mouse input devices" valued over $70

So if a mouse now costs 40$, they will increase the price to 70$ to avoid tariffs?

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

glad I wasn't the only person to read it that way.

Oh good, all ~$50 mice are now automatically $70 mice.

Since when did we make any major electronics in the US to begin with, since the early 90's when China was allowed into the WTO and everyone flocked to them for cheap labor and hasn't moved one bit since?

china good @ things, society building and liberty? not one of them... (they can build some awesome cities though )

america has also failed miserably in these categories for the last 20 years.

Yeah, we are used to the subsidized cheap overseas labor price to bring us the prices we are currently paying for, which these huge companies are making record profits for. The true cost of goods will never be seen as they aren't manufactured here. That $200 iphone in manufacturing costs, being sold for $1000, profits $800 for Apple, each. I bet if it were made in the US, likely cost $800 to make, and Apple surely can't price it higher than what the average American would pay nowadays to hold the same profit margin, so it wouldn't be $2000; they'd have to take a lower profit. But you know darn well they won't do that as their investors wouldn't be happy and tank their stock value.

China has been building cities during their boom, but they can't get people to live in them. So it really counts for nothing when you have lingering ghost cities all over the country. You're right, America has been stagnant for 2 decades with crumbling infrastructure where money given to states have been laundered elsewhere to pet projects instead of their intended projects; even so, the money would be wasted anyway - see California's high speed train to nowhere, there's so much corruption and laundering it isn't even funny. It's time to change that.

Everyone who has posted in this thread is overflowing with sarcasm and apathy towards the political aspect of it...

I love it!
