That's my opinion.

Hi Ron

Not sure what more I need to understand other than our suppliers telling us prices are going up at their end due to new tariffs?

Hi James

There have already been numerous post deleted here, and I believe elsewhere, as this issue is truly divisive. People don't know all the actual facts about tariffs, its cause and effect, and other issues, but get fired up when they hear a certain key word.
Tariffs is political and is a no no here.

Ron

Just my opinion but I saw nothing political in Jamesí posting. It was a vendor telling his customers (like me) that his prices will be going up and why. He did not take a position on whether tariffs are good or bad or how he otherwise feels about them. During the boom before the bust, China was buying up a huge amount of the worldís supply of copper to feed its construction boom which sent the price of copper soaring. If a manufacturer said its retail prices are going up because China was buying up so much of the USís copper, that, by itself is not political. If they editorialized about China sucking up all of our copper that would be political. But just saying the prices are going up because of the China buying a lot of copper is not political. Just like my electrician letting me know when I was building my house (during that time period) why the wiring cost jumped 20%. (The electrician later did make some very political statements about it).

I am a long time buyer and owner of Bryston equipment (oldest, an original 3B. Newest, BDP-2). If Bryston prices go up an average of say 3% each year and this year, when I may be looking to buy again they go up 20%, I would want to know why and appreciate that they told me. James certainly could have made his statement political but in my opinion, he didnít do that here.

The inevitable political debate was quickly nipped in the bud and I thank you for calling that one. I donít see a problem with the remaining posts at the moment, but I can see how one might be tempted to read between the lines.

I believe it is safe to say that there are new tariffs on both sides of the border without making any political statement about the reasons.

So, James, orders placed before Sept 1, will be at the old price, even if delivered after Sept 1?

Planning on a couple items for awhile, now. This will be a good incentive.

Heads up, Ivan.

He was not talking about James' post being political, but rather, the responses to his post being political, and I am one of them at fault who's post was deleted. No problem though because I understand.
