From what I understand, Tariffs are said to be NOT conservative

Not one single thread on it!

You have the floor Stu Grin

Quote:

President Donald Trump on Thursday slapped deeply contentious trade tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum, swatting aside warnings of a global trade war and protests from allies in Europe and at home.
The tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum will come into effect in 15 days, the White House said.

They will not apply to Canada and Mexico initially, an official said, adding that security and trade partners could negotiate to seek exemption.

The measures are likely to spark retaliatory sanctions from the European Union, China and other economic powers.

Moving to fulfil a protectionist campaign promise, Trump leaned on a little-used national security clause in US trade law.

"This is a promise made, a promise kept," a senior administration official said, "no one should be surprised."

Gratuitous tariffs are not conservative.  DEFENSIVE tariffs ARE, just as military defense is.

How is a tariff "defensive"?

He has no clue.  He is just parroting the Orange man in office.

Defensive tariffs?

Is that when you see a threat approaching and decide to shoot yourself in the foot?

It all depends on which side has the ball.

The same field reverses every time the ball changes hands.

What was right becomes wrong and what was good becomes evil.

Banned for your sins.

Risen so that you may find redemption.

Amen.

Indeed. But that's politics.

But when it comes to economics things are not so fluid.
