2:08 am
united states that's a different story when you look at b.m.w. for instance a lot of the cars that they manufacture in the u.s. actually gets exported to china the same is true it was a company like test said after the initial jump the stocks still were on the upside but not by as much as earlier you were mentioning it is a case by case thing but if confirmed this measure would anyway only revert to a previous increase so doesn't really make much of a difference in general. well i mean it's really a while back and forth just early in the summer china lowered the terror of cars from forty to fifty percent and then the next round of terrorists from the u.s. side they increased that forty percent it would make a difference wouldn't really argue that. the end would be
