While always being on the road can be lonely, one of the great benefits of living and working in Spain is that digital nomads can be surrounded by innovative and inspiring communities of like-minded people all over the country.

Sales of Russian sawn softwood products

Sales of Russian sawn softwood products to export markets demonstrate strong growth at the beginning of 2017. 

Traditional seasonal decrease of shipments of sawn wood resulting from the long New Year holidays this year had a slight impact on the dynamics of export volumes. 

In January-February 2017, the export volume of sawn softwood products from Russia amounted to 3.6 million m3 (+19% YoY) worth $448 million (+20% YoY).

Significant growth of sales was completely provided by the main consumer of Russian sawn softwood products — China, which in the two months of 2017 increased purchases from Russia by 41% to 2.1 million m3. 

Thus, the share of China in the total sales amount of sawn softwood products from Russia amounted to 58%.

Focus on China 2017

Competition from Chinese imports may have cost some Americans jobs. Economists have found that, of the fall in manufacturing  jobs between 1990 and 2007, one-quarter could be attributed to a surge in imports from China.

What a company such as Apple would have done without low-cost Chinese assembly workers is unknowable. Nevertheless, American shoppers were able to buy cheaper stuff.

Americans were able to buy products to lower prices and this raised consumer's incomes by the equivalent of 13-percentage-point cut in tariffs.

It also helped poor Chinese workers get richer, which should be regarded as a positive development from a global perspective.
