    To the point of a sick joke China has been price dumping paper and steel in America. President Bush did didly squat for his 8 years...as well as the legislators in the past.
    FINALLY - at least a start in applying already existing anti-trade practices against the Chinese government. They have been dumping paper in America for at least a decade that has all but destroyed the once prominent American and Canadian paper industry.

    how nice of them to give us lower prices and make us richer, and thus give us more to spend on other things that stimulate employment here.

    Tariffs? Is that the left's solution for the mess the US economy is in? The US is spending our grand kids money to buy oil and the left thinks that tariffs on paper is the wave of the future. You almost gotta laugh.

    OK you guys clearly have no clue.
    Do you even know what price dumping is kids?
    Let me spell it out for you...especially Edward who clearly has rocks in his head.
    Price dumping is purposely selling paper below cost of manufacture in order to build a monopoly.
    China was selling paper in the U.S. at about 15% below their cost. They were WELL on their way to knock out paper mills all over North America. Paper Mills provide outstanding high paying jobs.
    You clowns seem ok with this in favor of those 1,000's of people losing their jobs to go work for Wal-Mart.

    [flip] - here's a nickel kid, go entertain yourself.

    Thanks Dante.....these idiots have no clue.
    Simple minds cannot grasp that low prices is not the answer....if it was - then everything would be for free.

    The Man Who Said No to Wal-Mart
    Every year, thousands of executives venture to Bentonville, Arkansas, hoping to get their products onto the shelves of the world's biggest retailer. But Jim Wier wanted Wal-Mart to stop selling his Snapper mowers.

    A similar thing happened in the UK some years ago... Greece started shipping in baked beans at 10p a can. Destroyed the UK market.... then raised their prices. People are so very short termist when it comes to their buying power. They bought cheap shit, and in the process destroyed their own industry.... now they complain that the manufacturing industry is struggling... 'why did the government allow this to happen? They whine.... the government didn't do it, you did. Idiots.
