Tariff hits GM more than Tesla. Tesla's higher end clients can afford the best- GM's imported Buicks will suffer as will Ford's Focus. The tariff is targeting petrol- and the delusion that the US would become a petrol exporter. That plastic and chemicals tariff is code for petrol. China is saying it won't be buying any of that from the US, but the point is it doesn't need to- and it would just be a glut situation anyway. The point is China doesn't need any petrol to grow its economy. Not using petrol and using the efficiency and capacity of green it can grow its economy radically faster not hampered by the low economic efficiency and hollowing out of petrol acts as a huge catalyst for growth instead of petrol's lead weight. China will set the example as a green cord cutting economy for the world. This must happen because the economics of petrol were never sustainable and are a road to serfdom. "You buy my petrol or else," isn't going to work anymore- they kick the habit a with a pump cord cutting positive green constructive economy vice a catabolic petrol economy. They will base their economy on something other than artificial scarcity inducing petrol.
