@keyboardmaestro I’d like to know what new functions you had in mind with these improvements. ‘What’s New’ list a bit too dry to parse :-\

V. nice article by @dikenson on duty suspensions (‘by-laws’ in AU). Argues for zero duties on intermediate goods. twitter.com/snlester/statu…

Of course quoted $7bn added cost for local mfg. of submarines will prove a tiny fraction of acutal overrun. Historical record unambiguous.

via Tweetlogix

It took AU govts 50 years to admit subsidies for car mfg. had not created jobs, industries. Just 2 years on, Turnbull reverts to subsidies.

Hah! Love it! “Keep Pork Pie British! in EU” Let’s get some bumper stickers. twitter.com/sdonnan/status…

via Tweetlogix

@sdonnan EU also carries a lot of baggage into a negotiation that UK may not need. Irrelevant ‘red lines’ that make a deal with EU hard.

via Tweetlogix in reply to sdonnan

Focus of trade eval shd.be: how much do transact. costs rise if UK ‘adjacent’, not ‘in’ EU? More/less cost than EU trade policies?

via Tweetlogix

@sdonnan In small-large FTAs the small econ probably does better (scale-gains). But neg ‘leverage’ the wrong focus for trade eval.

Peter Cochran’s Byron texts are indispensable for scholars, performers twitter.com/CoherentCrap/s…

It’s Blake’s London, not Wordsworth’s. A coal-smoke canopy, St Pauls ‘great dun’ coupola like a dunces’ cap, a forest of masts on the river.

Seven years later (“usual term of transportation”) Byron in Genoa imagines Don Juan’s first view of London (c. 1791) in Canto X.

Me too. If either USA or CHN enacted an “us vs them” trade policy they’d get so much less than they bargained for. twitter.com/snlester/statu…

@alanbeattie Yep. A century of bans. Disgraceful rubbish. No evidence just rural socialism (like Canada-Potatoes). Rescinded 10(?) yrs ago.

@alanbeattie Pomm(i)es you mean? I’m not a fan of biosecurity controls. Like A-D duties they take little/no acct. of consumer costs.

@alanbeattie ‘Fraid it’s not possible. Sparrers a prohibited import. Also no laissez-passers for pirates unless, you know, Kiera Knightley.

(2/2) Because if UK it must bear continuing econ. costs of same EU barriers it wd. face/negotiate after & more (cognac?)

Canto X of Don Juan is in the can (post processing still to come). Imperial sex romp but, unlike IX, violence due mostly to B’s temperament.

@AllieRenison @LHSummers @dikenson Harmonisation of regs. can cut trade costs. Good. But, the program verges on ‘elitist’ integration. Bad.

via TweetDeck in reply to AllieRenison

Trade gains are due to int’l differences (endowment, tech, ideas). ‘Harmonisation’ rules (@LHSummers) nuts or worse::ft.com/intl/cms/s/2/5…

@Snowden campaigns against those who take advantage of limits on territorial reach of govt. No sense of irony?

Some of these OED claims are nuts. Byron uses “Quarterly” as the name of a Tory journal founded by Murray in 1809! twitter.com/OxfordWords/st…

UK GDP=130%*(CAN+CH). Reentry terms to EU mkt will be favourable. Costs of current EU barriers dynamic. Cost (?) of mkt. reentry one-off.

via TweetDeck

@tgemiles UK econ. pays now for EU extern. barriers they may face as a global competitor. Cost less to tackle relevant bars fm outside.

via TweetDeck in reply to tgemiles

The trade case is based on loss of free access to protected EU markets. But doesn’t UK already bear the costs of those EU barriers?

Canto X of Byron’s Don Juan, begins with Newton & gravity. He imagines steam engines flying to the moon. Unlikely?::halfbakery.com/idea/Moon_20St…
