I don’t think anyone likes the idea of responding to all of the various statements that Donald Trump makes, but when he says something vaguely – emphasis on vaguely – substantive on an issue, a short response might be of value. New Ford vehicles are seen at a parking lot of the Ford factory in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Brazil, February 12. Donald Trump is right that we need companies to invest in America. But the answer is not to threaten trade wars when companies act in ways that are both profit maximizing and make consumers better off, the author writes. Paulo Whitaker/Reuters In a recent interview with Chris Cuomo, Trump talked about trade policy, and had this to say (starting around the 7:00 mark) about Ford doing some of its manufacturing in Mexico:Read more

Amid the worst emerging-market currency rout since the global financial crisis, some developing countries can expect a silver lining. Latin America’s commodity-producing nations, which have seen their foreign-exchange rates fall to record lows, may end up among the biggest winners as their exports become cheaper and more attractive. The countries’ manufacturers stand to benefit after losing their competitive edge in global markets in the past decade as higher prices for goods from copper to oil pushed up currencies and squeezed local production. Colombia’s peso, after adjusting for trade and inflation, fell 25 percent in the past year, according to data through July from the Bank for International Settlements. Brazil’s real sank 18 percent by that measure, while Mexico’s currency lost 12 percent. China, which spurred the latest round of turmoil with last week’s devaluation, saw the biggest gain -- 15 percent -- when weighting for trade and inflation.Read more

Domestic sales of jeans dropped 8 percent on a dollar basis in 2014, to $15.4 billion, worrying some manufacturers and prompting VF Corp, according to The NPD Group/Consumer tracking service. "A 8-percent drop may not seem like much, but it's rare for denim to take such a dramatic drop. It's a commodity business, we buy it and replenish it all the time."Read more
