      [Business/Tech]

      American Business practices, especially internet technology related, are having a hard go of it in the EU. For Decades internet technology companies have used their success to stifle competition and control market share. From the time when Microsoft introduced it's Explorer browser years ago and used it's software dominance of the PC market to wallop other browsers with, and people cried and moaned about it, to Apple Computers who for the longest had a closed operating system (no others need apply), the big fish eat little fish American way with internet tech competition is frowned upon by other nations.

      You can't, or shouldn't be allowed to, block or devour other would be competitive companies at will. For these reasons Google has been charged with doing just that, which they might get by with at home in America, but in Europe, they might better rethink their practices. It was announced that the company will be fined $5 billion. Yes, that is $5 billion and that is a lot of loot, but because Google is at the top of the food chain and can easily afford the financial hit to it's book. Would they consider this just part of the price one must pay to keep a strangle hold on the manufacturing and marketing of internet capable smart phones, or take it as a message to change their ways or else.

          This will play well to his supporters, who don't understand finance and profitability. Most people don't understand how markets work. What they do understand is that outsourcing has cost them jobs. So Trump issuing threats to H-D shows that's standing up for the American worker. It might work as H-D might realize that the potential loss in sales supersedes the any increases in production cost from European tariffs. Regardless of what they do, their shareholders will be shedding tears as they see the stock plummet on Monday.

          Most people aren't expected to understand the impact of tariffs on production costs, but a Wharton economics graduate should. Yes, Trump majored in economics, yet didn't realize the unintended consequences of using tariffs. Here's a Wharton alum who is seeing the value of his degree reduced with an association with Trump:

          Tim Cook Is Trying To Get Trump To Back Off His Trade Battle With China

          President Donald Trump will welcome Apple CEO Tim Cook to the White House on Wednesday for a one-on-one meeting. At the top of the agenda: recently proposed tariffs on imports of Chinese goods.

          "Looking forward to my meeting with Tim Cook of Apple," Trump tweeted Wednesday. "We will be talking about many things, including how the U.S. has been treated unfairly for many years, by many countries, on trade."
