    Trump is pulling the US out of an obscure 144-year-old treaty to take a shot at China in the trade war

    If you are drop shipping from China to the US the price of postage (postal delivery) will increase dramatically ...
    • President Donald Trump announced that the US would withdraw from the Universal Postal Union, a 192-country treaty that helps to set international postage rates.
    • The decision appears to be a direct shot at China.
    • Chinese goods coming into the US are currently subject to lower postage rates, making it cheaper to ship items into America.
    • The Trump administration argued this gives an unfair advantage to China and incentivizes importing knock-off goods from the country.
    • The move is also the latest salvo in the US-China trade war.

    I have been looking at some deals on the export of Chinese goods for a while.
    This is really going to effect the AliExpress type business -- for sales to the USA (Thanks Trump :( )
    Maybe, concentrate on global sales EU stays the same. This will just cause prices to rise in the USA. The way things are going: inflation will be 7% annually.

    This only affect postage rates from China to the USA ...
    Tariff increases will affect the China to US commerce in general.
    • Sad part is: This will do little or nothing to create low-skill manufacturing work in the US.
    • Bright part is: Robitic manufacturing techniques will create high tech jobs world wide.
    • At the end of the day, there will be many surplus humans to care for -- but that is another discussion ...
