U.S. exports fall in 2015 for first time since recession


WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The nation’s trade deficit rose 2.7% in December as exports fell again, capping the first year since 2009 in which U.S. exports have declined.

The U.S. trade gap increased to a seasonally adjusted $43.4 billion from $42.2 billion in November, government data show. That was in line with the MarketWatch forecast.

U.S. exports dipped 0.3% to $181.5 billion. They fell 4.8% in 2015 to mark the largest decline since the final year of the Great Recession.

The fact that India, China and the EU are buying less has nothing to do with this. Obviously, Obama issued a secret presidential decree that US manufacturers were not allowed to send goods to people who weren't buying them.

Evil Muslim Kenyan.

TOOOOOOO FUNNY!

I guess the fact that CHINA is our third largest trading partner for OUR EXPORTS and all we hear is how their economy is slowing--probably doesn't have anything to do with the equation. Right?

Anyone else notice that the only ones who have mention Obama are the board libnuts? It's like they are programmed to try to defend him........even when his name hasn't come up.

if only they had take the opportunity of Iran's willingness to buy America... if only America's right wingers had not donned those opportunity, think of all the jobs, think of all those exports.. if only, if only, but the American extreme right can have both sides of their bread buttered... they can't piss away the Iranians and still have the jobs, exports they offered..
