Trade Deficit: summary for October reports
by Mike Crane

"No matter how big the cookie and how small the bites, eventually you run out of cookie."

The October 2007 Trade statistics were released on December 12 and remain at a very high and unacceptable level.  This month's commentary will be very brief and just include the summary information. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and please remember the Reason for the Season.

A look at the monthly statistics released by the BEA (U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis) show little change.

The chart at the right is taken - month by month - from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis monthly press releases. These are just the numbers reported by the government. A copy and link to the most recent BEA press release is always at the bottom of the page.

This remains a track record of failed economic policies, which apparently are continuing unabated.

Excluding Petroleum Products

Since many of our new age rocket scientists called - economists - blame our Trade Deficit on petroleum products, I have started the chart on the left. This shows the month by month trade position excluding all petroleum products.

Even if we did not import a single barrel of oil, our trade deficit would be roughly $500,000,0000,000.00 dollars a year!

The song remains the same, month after month. Your elected officials try to spin the problem to make you believe that the problem is primarily due to oil. Or the trade deficit drops from $800,000,000,000.00 per year to ONLY $700,000,000,000.00 per year and they jump with joy.

The reason for the spin should be obvious - it is easier to blame the lunatic in Venezuela and Arabs than to admit that the problem is our failed economic policies. Or to pretend that the problem is going away.

Full commentary will return in January.

" Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing
because he could only do a little.

Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797)

About the author:

Mike Crane is the 2nd vice chairman of the Southern Party of Georgia and a candidate for the 51st Senate District in Georgia. Despite gathering over 7,000 petition signatures in 2004 and 2006 combined - he was denied ballot access both elections.  While 70% of the Georgia State House districts and 56% of Georgia Senate districts had one candidate in November, Georgia tax dollars were used to prevent political competition.

Has the time has come to end Banana Republic style elections in Georgia? Has the time come to have some real political competition? If you think so, consider helping us.
