Does the trade imbalances with American trading partners undermine our workers? If so how? If not, will reassessment promote equitable outcome or will it exacerbate international instability as witnessed by currencies under stress. And/or near collapse? Are trade policies inherently unfair? Does trade policy vanquish equality of outcome? Can there be balance? What constitutes balance? Do some nations and industries win while workers are diminished overall?

Japanese companies surveyed expect earnings to suffer from the global trade war while many are already confronting new tariffs or related sanctions.

The survey, conducted in late August and early September, covered such topics as steel and aluminum tariffs, U.S. trade sanctions against China, retaliatory tariffs by various nations, and the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Music virtuoso John Jorgenson, known for his exquisite guitar licks and world-class musicianship, has collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. Members of the John Jorgenson Quintet (JJQ) attend the broadcast at 11am. They perform at The Loft at City Winery New York, situated this evening at 155 Varick Street, Wednesday, September 12th. Jorgenson’s dynamic Quintet and its authentic gypsy jazz—the string-driven swing created by Jean “Django” Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris—is recognized internationally. JJQ has been hailed the “U.S. ambassadors of gypsy jazz.” The John Jorgenson Quintet is comprised of five distinguished musicians: Jorgenson (acoustic guitar, bouzouki, clarinet, vocals), Casey Driscoll (jazz violin), Rory Hoffman (guitar/piano/ accordion), Simon Planting (bass), and Rick Reed (percussion). All About Jazz has described a live performance by the John Jorgenson Quintet as “a mix of soulful romance and rollicking celebration, with Jorgenson’s fingers a blur that created avalanches of notes and chords, his dazzling prowess often caused listeners to gasp at the speed and sound…” In a live review, No Depression noted “Jorgenson’s dexterity, speed, and beauty on acoustic guitar were astonishing, and one could only watch in awe…I struggle to think of a more accomplished guitarist I have seen on stage.”
