It sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it? Hopefully this will lead the US to return home and forget all imperial fantasies...

Surprisingly, the very countries that the USA runs trade defecits with (e.g. China, Japan, India and South Korea) are the ones that Australia runs surplusses with - and vice versa (e.g. UK, Canada, France, Singapore.)

We run a huge defecit with the USA which is (luckily for us so far) counterbalanced by a equally big surplus with the PRC.

Almost 30 Million in U.S. Didn’t Have Enough to Eat Last Week
By Maeve Sheehey

Food insecurity for U.S. households last week reached its highest reported level since the Census Bureau started tracking the data in May, with almost 30 million Americans reporting that they’d not had enough to eat at some point in the seven days through July 21.

In the bureau’s weekly Household Pulse Survey, roughly 23.9 million of 249 million respondents indicated they had “sometimes not enough to eat” for the week ended July 21, while about 5.42 million indicated they had “often not enough to eat.” The survey, which began with the week ended May 5, was published Wednesday.

The number of respondents who sometimes had insufficient food was at its highest point in the survey’s 12 weeks. The number who often experienced food insufficiency was at its highest since the week ended May 26.

This follows deep recession resulting from the pandemic, which put millions of Americans out of work. Unemployed Americans have been receiving an extra $600 per week benefit, which is set to expire at the end of July as Congress debates a new relief package.

Other high-frequency data, including Household Pulse jobs numbers, indicate that the U.S. economic recovery may be stalling out at virus cases spike around the country and states roll back their reopening plans.
