then showing INCREASES from 2009 numbers..to show increases..
AND how is it that the USA can EXPORT machinery..without SUBSIDIES?? to nations Poorer then the USA?
"estimated $223 billion per year, by 2025. Real income benefits to the United States are an estimated $77 billion per year. The TPP could generate an estimated $305 billion in additional world exports per year, by 2025, including an additional $123.5 billion in U.S. exports."
I aint no lawyer, but words like COULD, WOULD, MAY, and ESTIMATE...SCARE ME BADLY..
I dont see much on IMPORTS..and most of the idea of TRADE is getting equal value..and I dont see it. Are they going to Import FOOD? Watch that MARKUP.. they get it for pennies and sell it to us at DOLLARS, like they do our farmers..
I get a funny feeling the USA ends up PAYING the others money...for what? its not clear. but the CORPS dont want to pay it, and this agreement will PROBABLY end up costing the people the MONEY.
IF its what SOME of us think it is..we will send them SUBSIDIZED goods for there stuff(we paid for it) and they will end us STUFF and acknowledge CERTAIN RULES..
This is like the Trade agreement with canada.. A Pharma corp is SUEING CANADA, for making generic drugs. Which is funny, as the NATION isnt getting the money, its the business that making the drug, makes the money..
"on the topic of agricultural export subsidies, the author writes “All TPP countries except the U.S. commit to eliminate them”; likewise, with respect to financial services, he/she writes “United States shows zero flexibility."
Is this admitting that the USA will keep supporting Subsidies in the USA? Its been shown that the USA EXPORTS almost 80% of the food in this nation.. 1. we PAY for that in taxes.. 2. we pay for that in INFLATED prices on our food. as the USA loves forcing prices up(when not needed, when we send goods to other countries, to justify the subsidy) 3. when there are Major crop failure, ITS OUR prices that go up, even tho we could feed the USA..
It concerns me that it keeps saying the USA..when we already know that most of our representatives havnt SEEN any/most of the Documents. ANd the creators/backers are NOT the people of the USA.
I know a person that pretty well off.. And he has some good education and works in a building.. And HE thought he should get paid more money then the Janitor..
I asked him. that the Janitors clean every room in your building. And if you MISSED 1 day or 7..would the boss, others miss you?(or replace you) What would happen if the Janitors MISSED 1 day? by the THIRD day.. The BOSS would be looking for someone to CLEAN the toilet, dump the trash, mop the floors, Vacuum floors...... And I dont think much work would be happening until a few things got cleaned up..
AND if the BOSS asked you to do it..Even with your MIGHTY education..would you do it FREELY?? take a cut in pay to do it?? DEBATE a better wage then the JANITOR was getting? OR just CLEAN YOUR ROOMS?? FREE..
REALLY REALLY REALLY want to fix a few things.. aND piss off BANKS AND CORPS..
EVERYONE needs a home. At least big enough for a small family. NOT A HOLE in the wall for $600+ per month. If they move out, they MUST show a job..and they can have their OWN home. IT cant be sold/taxed/rented out..They can SWAP with another home about the same. THIS, alone, would fix alot of problems.And would put at LEAST $7000 per year in a person pocket.
LONG ago, and far away.. we USED to pay 1 company for 1 product.. Even the Grocery got Much of their stuff from 1 distributor for their products. There is SO MUCH handling of the product from place to place NOW..that buying 1 product isnt paying 1 company. Its paying for 3-4 companies. Which means you arent PAYING for a few people to get your product. you are paying HUNDREDS.. Every extra penny added to the cost pays another person. Its the SAME with WOOD for building and exporting. Its the same with your MEAT..fruits/veggie/.. Everything.
Its NOT that you cant go DIRECT(to the first distributor, which CAN BE ILLEGAL) its where to find them.. I would love to go direct to SIMPLOTS and get my goods. But something has happened to many of the states. IDAHO was one of the last states to be able to be independent and self sufficient.. meaning they could supply all the food they needed and ALL the minimum TYPES to keep people healthy. NOT any more. the Farmers land and crops are PURCHASED before he even grows them.. HE has to GROW what it TOLd to him.
2..There is NO job that does NOT require some type of skill, even one that you learned in grade school..like counting change, IS A SKILL..(Iv seen some that didnt know how). And what do you consider EDUCATION? You should be learning something every day. Esp, in school. but you can learn much WITHOUT school also.
3.This is confusing, but let me say this.. CORPS like to hire 1 person in charge. And 20 people at min wage. the person in charge only over looks the jobs the underlings do. THEY generally, dont do much of the work. SO, who gets paid? The Person in charge is getting wages, equal to 4-10 timeS, THE wage slaves doing the work.
WELL, you have an idea.. What you dont see.. IS if' you raise min wage, those 60% of USA workers, that work in the stores, get a raise.. WHICH means the store has to raise prices.
YOU CANT TAKE money from the rich and NOT FEEL IT at the bottom..
AS to CORPS.. That is a problem..and there is only a few ways around it. SIMPLIFY the tax codes..MAKE them as BASICALLY STUPID as you can.. MAKE corp Business designs that HAVE to be.. CUT this hide and sneak crap with the money.
Then there is 1 other thing that COULD make this all work. MAKE the gov...the TOP of the corp. and ALL money goes to the TOP..(not the bank) to be distributed..
I get a GREAT reasoning, that the CORPS have artificially, restricted and controlled the USA markets.
In a free market, wouldnt Other nations MAJOR/minor corps JUMP to the USA, at least to distribute their own products?? It would be easier and more controlled.. They would send ORDEREd products to a MAIN distribution location in the USA to be shipped to customers..IT WOULD MAKE TONS of money.
AC.. they DONT have equality in the USA.. because of 1 little thing. Distribution. Distribution is TOTALLY controlled in this nation..ITS the major handicap. ITS the middlemen.. Go do a price search in japan with the price in the USA of ANIME DVD's.. To sell a product in the USA you have to have a Very low price for whole sellers. then its handled 2-3 times to get to its destination, and then resold. AT about 10 times the price it would be in most other nations. And it isnt the WAGES. I dont care if they sent the anime DIGITALLY, and was MASS produced int he USA.. For SOME stupid reason it costs 10 times the price it would in Japan. This goes for Diagnostic goods for cars..ITS A STUPID CHIP..and the WHOLe machine costs $1000+ in the USA..and in Taiwan, it less then $200, and you can get a POCKET READER for $10-15 at harbor freight..
I WONDER if we have all these costs when we EXPORT to poor nations, esp. on FOOD..I want to see a person in Africa pay as much as we do for food..
WHY? Lets HOLD all our copyrights and charge everyone for using our 75 year old ideas.. Lets sell them Every new concept from 75 years ago. Lets not consider that they have smart people also, and that IF' they come up with an improvement..Lets CHARGE them in court for the idea, the improvement we made 70 years ago, and the one 60 years ago.
Lets not IMPROVE what we have. Lets SELL Stupid things, over and over.. Let watch SAT TV, and be charged for it, for the rest of our lives, when its given away in other countries. YES other countries LET anyone watch Sat TV, FREE...its cheaper then installing 10000 Antennas around the area, CHARGE for it.
WHY improve computers with 1982 tech, NEVEr let people have better products until they can pay for it, 1000 times.. Even cellphones have better tech then MOSt of our computers.. but to make one, you have 200+ copyrights you have to PAY for..(no wonder they cost so much)
Proper use would make.. "Improper USE of product/material"
the Word piracy is improper in the first place. IT was a derogatory and mis-used word. Their were Very few Pirates by any understanding. MOSt were hired Raiders. Thief, means you GAINEd something..which may be hard to prove. And stealing is also fun.. try showing that the Claimant didnt GAIN for the loss.
If we could show al the money these folks SPEND to protect themselves, 1) shows HOW much they are losing..to protection. 2)NOT paying for protectionism, would make them MORE money over a shorter time. 3)obsolescence.. in tech is about 5 years. go look how old USB is.. 4) music and movies? MOST movies are augmented from Published books. Small changes to make it CR..ask disney. MOST music tends to be derivative of previous materials..and even the musicians are saying they ARNT getting paid by the MANY levels of protection.. they make MORE money singing LIVE, then from the CORPS.
Dear AC.. You can TRUSt most of the scientists..The main problem that has happened.. Shoddy building materials NO maintenance.. NO UPDATES.. NOT testing all parts at least 1 time per year.. WE WANT to use the most radioactive materials that dont break down, in 10,000 years. DISPOSAL.. ANd most of the Plants out there are 50+ years old.. And even your house has UPDATES/FIXS in the past 50.. And metal pipes and Valves FAIL..esp if they ARENT USED..
