    GREAT chart, Barry….this is very, very useful. Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting up something that proves the point that a picture is worth a thousand words.

  2. jonpublic says:

    Interesting. I’d like to see exports vs imports by state regarding China. I bet for instance we import more than 8.7 billion in chemicals from China.

  3. Badger says:

    This chart would be more useful if it were per capita. From this chart, I know Texas, New York, Illinois, and California are large states. Georgia, Oregon, Washington, and Louisiana appear to be surprises on the upside. Florida appears to be a surprise on the downside.

    Actually my buddy was going to head over there to work on solar cell production, but the chinese authorities seized some label making equipment that was being shipped over because they said it wasn’t certified that it was made in China. Even though it said “made in china” on the bottom.

    Of course his company can’t setup shop there without having a domestic partner that controls 50 or 51% of the business. That domestic partner gets all the tech info.

    So when they throw a hissy fit about tariffs etc, I really don’t understand it.

    @jonpublic
    They throw their hissy fits about our tariffs because they know we’re stupid enough to be blinded by our own ideology. We ignore the fact that China doesn’t allow free trade in allowing the Chinese unfettered access to our markets. If you can convince a man to hang himself, why bother murdering him?

    It’s so typical of other countries in the world to learn from our mistakes, or be revolutionary in their thinking. There was a time when the United States led in those two categories, REVOLUTIONARY and LEARNING. Now, we just watch Dancing with the Stars and wish we had an ass like Kim Kardashian.

    Sorry to be so blunt. It’s been a weird day and a weird week. No excuse, but inflection is hard to gather from typed words.

  7. Mannwich says:

    @f411: Totally agree. How about that?

  8. mgnagy says:

    Nice graphic. Am I missing something? Living in Houston, all the graphic does for me is confirm where most US containerized shipping originates.

    franklin411,

    like Jeff, on this one–”Whocoodamode?”

    that has to be the most cogent viewpoint I’ve /heard/ expressed, from yourself..
    cogent
    adj
    compelling belief or assent; forcefully convincing
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/cogent
    ~~
    past that, as others have begun to allude to, this Chart is misleading/Agitprop..
    ~~
    ashpelham2,

    when we begin to make excuses for the, simple, *Truth–as seen here:
    “Now, we just watch Dancing with the Stars and wish we had an ass like Kim Kardashian.”

    It becomes easier to understand why this: “There was a time when the United States led in those two categories, REVOLUTIONARY and LEARNING.” is a True statement..

    LSS: don’t apologize for the Truth, it’s big, enough, to take care of itself, or Us–depending on how We choose to Deal w/it..

    as an aside, people would do well w http://www.thedeal.com/ in their rota of inputs..

    Howsabout exporting some algorithmic trading to the mainlanders! BofA and UBS are On the Road to Rio with their fancy slide rulers…

  13. MR,

    as you’ve suggested, previously, BR should look Brazil way..makes for Good Economics–growing Economy, and a counter-Seasonal Vacay destination, w/ ‘one stone’..

  14. MRegan says:

    MEH-

    Yup. However, perhaps we are entering a reaping period and capital outflows will exert pressure on financial assets related to Brazil. I guess an clue I missed was operations like JBS buying real assets here in the states. 2010 may prove to be confounding wrt Brazil.

    Mr. Ritholtz, muito tarde, issa a-bunda-nza [sic] facil alongou-se como uma garota alegre

    ‘a clue’

  16. Stillaway says:

    It’s good to see trade with China is a two way street.
    19 lanes coming in and 1 lane out.
    And the one lane out is dedicated to technology they wish to acquire (steal).

    Why do we trade with a communist country that has nuclear missiles pointed at us?
    If corporations need cheap labor then it at least should come from a country that has some semblance of a democracy.

    If we had permitted open trade with the Soviet Union the Berlin Wall would still be standing.

  17. Pat G. says:

    Looks logical, port cities than by rail or truck to the inner-main cities. Is that a big bald spot in the middle of the U.S. or what? Mrs says it could be a fuzzy picture of the back of my head. lol

  18. patfla says:

    I’m not disputing the numbers, but first I’d like to know who the ‘US/China Business Council’ is. If I get the time, I’ll look them up.

    Always look at where you data comes from.

  19. alfred e says:

    What I noticed is there’s no entry for India. Nada.

    What, Bananamerican corporations off-shore jobs to India like crazy and India imports zip from us.

    Figures.

  20. Stillaway,

    you ask:

    “Why do we trade with a communist country that has nuclear missiles pointed at us?”

    –The systematic, intentional extermination of the Middle Class has been going on at least since Nixon went to China…

    funny that Nixon goes to China in’72, and these guys http://www.trilateral.org/about.htm come public in ’73
    “…The “growing interdependence” that so impressed the founders of the Trilateral Commission in the early 1970s has deepened into “globalization.” That interdependence also has ensured that the current financial crisis has been felt in every nation and region. It has fundamentally shaken confidence in the international system as a whole. The Commission sees in these unprecedented events a stronger need for shared thinking and leadership by the Trilateral countries, who (along with the principal international organizations) have been the primary anchors of the wider international system. Doubts about whether and how this primacy will change do not diminish, and, if anything, have intensified the need to take into account the dramatic transformation of the international system…”

    Whoa little bro, you are getting some serious aclinaids today – You keep this up and mom will seat you at the head of the table on Turkey day.

  22. Mannwich says:

    This is what our elite masters tell us is “free trade” – free for the Sheeple get its asses kicked with no protections for us, while our trading partners protect its interests like the U.S. should be doing, but our masters are too busy throwing everyone under the bus so they can count their winnings. Bunch of traitorous welfare queens.

  23. Trainwreck says:

    India’s trade with us is more more balanced, and much less as a total compared to China.

    Exports to India though Aug 2009: $10,831,500,000
    Imports from India though Aug 2009: $13,599,100,000
    Trade imbalance: -$2,767,700,000

    Of course the labor outsourcing picture is much more complex considering not all outsourcing would show up in the trade data.
