There will likely be a lot of unintended consequences of this tariff war.

China switching to Russia and Brazil for soybeans is the one we are reading about. That market is unlikely ever to return.

But undoubtedly there will be other surprises as we go along.

Wonder how many casualties from Trump's tariff wars U.S. taxpayers will be obligated to subsidize.

The material needed is not available in America. Period. So, no employment, and robots can't be used for this.

Rather interesting as I have read that China is officially intolerant of a number of religions including Christianity.

The most ironic part is Bible is not available in China except only in those government-monitored Churches. You can be convicted to long term jail sentence for "smuggling" Bible into China.

But isn't there is at least one Bible in every household in US? If supply is short, digitize it and bring a Kindle to Church.
