#1 Uh hu, Meanwhile foreign auto manufacturers are moving more production to the US . They especially like to set up in non-union controlled states.

#5 New data from Mexico's auto industry show the country exported 2.33 million vehicles to the U.S in 2017, an increase of 9.4 percent. In addition, 75 percent of the vehicles exported from Mexico wound up being sold in the U.S., far outpacing the next most popular destination, Canada, which received just more than 8 percent of the vehicles shipped out of Mexico.

GM's exports from Mexican plants popped 26.3 percent from January through November 2017, according to the Mexican Automotive Association.

So much for USMCA

#9 Watching a business realign its future using forecast outcomes is interesting.

Assumptions, though, can be tricky things.
