This is the second tranche of tariffs following the July 6 levy on approximately $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, the USTR said. The final list of products contains 279 lines, down from 284 that were originally proposed.

USA:s president Donald Trump hotar med att de företag som bedriver handel med Iran inte får göra affärer med USA. Sanktionerna kan påverka svenska företag.

Även bensinpriser kan påverkas – men Lena Sellgren, chefsekonom på Business Sweden, ser inte det som ett sannolikt scenario.

US oil touches $75 amid fears Iran will block Middle East shipments

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 05 juli 2018. Posted in Right right 1, USA, Artiklar om USA, Main 4

West Texas Intermediate (WTI), the US benchmark, has surged to $75 per barrel for the first time since the oil crisis of 2014.

The movement came after Iran reportedly threatened to disrupt oil shipments from the Middle East Gulf if Washington pressed ahead with sanctions against Iran. On Wednesday, the WTI slipped to $74.59 per barrel, still one of the highest marks in over three years.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said: “It has no meaning for Iranian oil not to be exported, while the region’s oil is exported.” New US sanctions against Tehran are on the way as the largest three producers in the world – Russia, Saudi Arabia and America – are increasing output.

‘US isolating itself, while Europe, Russia & Iran are moving closer together’

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 28 juni 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Main 2, Right bottom - 8st

The US is sanctioning so many countries these days that it is going to end up sanctioning itself out of the world economic market, while Europe, Russia and Iran are moving closer together, author Dan Kovalik told RT.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned Iran will “face the wrath of the world” if it develops nuclear weapons. Meanwhile the top diplomats of Germany, United Kingdom, Russia and France are scrambling to rebuild the JCPOA nuclear deal which has been left in question ever since the United States pulled out in May.

US dollar will crash & burn because of trade war with China – investor Peter Schiff

on tisdag, 26 juni 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Main 2, Right bottom - 8st

The idea that a trade war between US and China is good for the dollar is complete nonsense, according to investor Peter Schiff. He believes that greenback will only depreciate.

"The thinking is – at least when it comes to trade - is that the dollar is going to benefit from a trade war, which I think is wrong. I think it's just as wrongheaded as the concept that the dollar is going to benefit from larger budget deficits," Schiff said.

From Little Rocket man to Dear Kim

Written by Tony Harkén on måndag, 11 juni 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un started as arch-antagonists trading insults and threats of war. But now with Trump saying it’s Kim’s only shot at peace, the world is holding its breath waiting for their historic meeting in Singapore.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are meeting in Singapore on Tuesday at around 9am local time and their historic summit will be the first face-to-face talks ever between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader. For decades, Washington and Pyongyang barely spoke to each other, neither after the Korean War, nor after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Rare instances when they did engage in talks were limited to negotiating release of American detainees or other issues.

More frequently, both the US and North Korea exchanged insults and threatened military action, and it seemed like nothing was going to change. All of a sudden, it did.

Trump imposes $60bn in tariffs on Chinese imports, accusing Beijing of intellectual-property theft

Written by Tony Harkén on fredag, 23 mars 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Main 2, Right bottom - 8st

US President Donald Trump has announced a $60 billion package of tariffs against China. According to the White House, the move is aimed at curbing theft of intellectual property.

Trump has signed a Section 301 trade action with China that could be about $60 billion in tariffs, he said adding that he asked China to reduce trade surplus immediately by $100 billion.

"We have right now an $800 billion dollar trade deficit with the world," he said before signing a memorandum."It is the largest deficit of any country in the history of our world. It's out of control."  

"We're gonna get it taken care of. Frankly it's going to make us a much stronger, much richer nation."

"Just use the reciprocal. If they charge us, we charge them the same thing."

Lemne djupt oroad av Trumps ståltullar

Written by Tony Harkén on söndag, 04 mars 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Main 1, Main 6 - 3st

"Det är med stor oro jag tagit del av den amerikanska administrationens avsikter att införa strafftullar på utländskt stål och aluminium" säger Carola Lemne med anledning av gårdagens tullbeslut.

Trump-administrationen vill höja tullar för importerat stål med 25 procent och aluminium med 10 procent.

– Dessa unilaterala och protektionistiska åtgärder från en så stor handelspartner som USA riskerar att i förlängningen leda till handelskrig som skulle vara förödande för världsekonomin som nu börjar återhämta sig. Konsekvenserna kommer inte bara att bli stora för berörda och drabbade företag men också för konsumenter som riskerar avsevärt högre slutpriser, säger Lemne.

Written by Tony Harkén on torsdag, 25 januari 2018. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

The precious metal rose as high as $1,370 during the trading session before dropping six dollars, but still trading in the green compared to the previous session. The 2016 high was $1,374.91.

Saudi Arabia wants to kill the petrodollar - economist

Written by Tony Harkén on fredag, 17 november 2017. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

The United States and Saudi Arabia are so interdependent that a rift would mean disaster for the petrodollar system and the greenback’s reserve currency status, warns economist Brandon Smith.

He is sure Riyadh is planning to ditch the dollar.

“I believe the next phase of the global economic reset will begin in part with the breaking of petrodollar dominance. An important element of my analysis on the strategic shift away from the petrodollar has been the symbiosis between the US and Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has been the single most important key to the dollar remaining as the petrocurrency from the very beginning,” Smith wrote in an article for his website Alt-market.com.

Nuclear war may break out any moment, says N. Korean UN envoy

Written by Tony Harkén on tisdag, 17 oktober 2017. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

North Korea's deputy UN ambassador has warned the UN General Assembly that the crisis on the Korean Peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”

Kim In-ryong said North Korea is the only country in the world subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” by the US, AP reports.

He accused Washington of hatching a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership” and defended his country's nuclear arsenal, at the heart of the crisis, as being for self-defense.

‘Missiles to fly over Japan & land near Guam’

N. Korea’s strike plan vs US to be ready in ‘days’

North Korean state media has outlined details of the country’s Guam strike plan expected to be ready by mid-August. The attack will reportedly include four missiles fired over Japan and landing within a few dozen kilometers of US territory.

Continuing the heated exchange with US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media outlet KCNA said that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, will be presented with an elaborate plan of the attack by mid-August, Reuters reported.

The plan envisions launching four Hwasong-12 rockets that would “cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan,” the report says, citing General Kim Rak Gyom.

The missiles are set to “fly 3,356.7km (2,085.8 miles) for 1,065 seconds” before practically reaching the shores of Guam, landing in the waters just “30-40km away.”

Trump announces US withdrawal from Paris climate change deal

Written by Cecilia Helland on fredag, 02 juni 2017. Posted in USA, Artiklar om USA, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

President Donald Trump is withdrawing the US from the Paris agreement on climate change, a UN treaty signed by almost 200 nations in 2016 and considered a major achievement by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

The decision was announced Thursday afternoon in the White House Rose Garden.

“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the US will withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” Trump said.

His administration will begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris accord or another climate treaty, “on terms that are fair” to the US, Trump added.

“As of today, the US will cease all implementation” of the Paris accord and the “draconian” burdens it mandated, he said.
