TD Bowen octMaine Pointe CEO Steven Bowen appeared again on the TDAmeritrade Network's Morning Trade Live show with host Oliver Renick, talking about the impact of tariffs on the global economy and supply chains. In this informative episode, Steve discussed the potential for positive advancement in multiple industries, especially with NAFTA morphing into a new agreement with the USMCA. What's ahead with relation to China however, remains to be seen, and Steve suggested that it is "going to get worse before it gets better." Companies like Boeing and other big industrials will see some impact, although the USMCA will lead to further relationship-building with Europe in terms of trade, which will may lead to the US taking a stronger stance with China.

Stress-Testing Global Trade

Few American brands are as iconic as Harley-Davidson. Apple is just as popular, but at age 42 it’s a relative upstart. GE is equally venerable, but it’s ailing. Not so the Wisconsin-based maker of distinctive motorcycles. Founded in 1903, it stands nearly alone as a fabled company that has remained vibrant for more than a century. During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly invoked Harley as a proud example of American manufacturing prowess. The full story is considerably more complicated. Yes, Harleys are assembled in the U.S. But some are partly manufactured and assembled in plants around the world. (The company is currently shutting down a plant in Kansas in response to waning domestic  sales,  while ramping up production in Thailand to supply the growing Asian market.)
