Markets got sidelined this week by Facebook's data debacle and Trump attacking all the "bad deals" other U.S. administrations made in good times--Trump may be testing the adage, "Bad deals are made in good times ... It takes bad times to be able to make good deals."--WolfStreet.com.

Trump vs. the WTO?  The U.S. has much lower tariffs on some foreign goods than other countries have on the same US-made goods. For example cars: the European Union has a 10 percent tariff on all imported cars, including those manufactured in the U.S., and China hits all foreign-made cars with 25 percent tariffs. But the U.S. only charges 2.5 percent on foreign cars imported into the U.S. market--Axios.com.

How far is Trump willing to take this? Watch Steven Mnuchin--US will consider re-entering TPP, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says | CNBC.com 21 March 2018: "The U.S. will consider re-entry to the 12-nation trade agreement once Washington accomplishes its other trade goals, Mnuchin said."

  • Caveat Emptor: Obama-era fiduciary rule on retirement planners overturned--a federal appeals court has ruled that the Department of Labor overstepped its authority when it wrote a rule that required financial professionals, including brokers and insurance agents, to put their customers’ financial interests ahead of their own.
  • Outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says farewell | CBSnews.com: "This [Washington, D.C.] can be a very mean-spirited town," Tillerson said, to applause. "But you don't have to choose to participate in that." [Editor's note: that's one reason I cut the cord on cable TV.]
  • We don’t actually see the world as it is--"Expertise and filtering [can] work together. The better we know our subject matter, the easier it is to filter out irrelevant noise ... Clarity ... [versus] biases and beliefs, reactive emotions ...."-- cfainstitute.org.
