MathJak107, I don't know where "here" is? Isn't the picture on your web site the same bridge I see when driving on the cross Island expressway? Google currency exchange services in the city. You’re not fussy; you’ll accept their check, or credit to your bank card.

6009, there are substantial economic benefits to significantly reducing or eliminating our great chronic international annual trade deficts. I’m a proponent of the improved policy described within Wikipedia’s “Import Certificates” article. It is superior to USA’s current and all other trade existing or proposed international trade policies.

Other than the simplest form of “most favored nation agreements”, I’m opposed to our nation participating within any trade agreements for economic purposes. What we or they permit to enter a sovereign nation should not be a matter for international negotiation.

I’m a proponent of our nation treating all non-enemy nations’ entities in an equitable manner, and I expect them to treat us in the same manner. The simple form of a “most favored nation” agreement does not prohibit nations from favoring their own entities.

Nations that do not enter into most favored nation agreements, do not do so at their own commercial peril.

As of September, imports are up, trade deficit is increasing.

In July, the U.S. exported far fewer passenger planes and soybeans and the goods deficit with China "leaped to a record high of nearly $37 billion."

"So far the imposition of U.S. tariffs on a variety of foreign goods have done nothing to curb the deficit. President Trump’s tough line with key trading partners such as China and Canada hasn’t had much effect, either."

The costs and benefits of producing or importing.
