If Trump were capable of developing strategy (rather than simply tweeting and following impulses), he might.  He only recently figured out that Mexico and China do not pay the tariffs assessed on goods imported from those countries.  I think he really thought they did, or he (characteristically) never thought it through in the first place.




thats not entirely true...in the end a tariff increases the cost to consumers and hurts demand for the seller, assuming there are substitutes...its a good tool to use, if the goal is to get the other guy to drop his tariffs, and you agree to do same...ultimately to take "hidden" cost out of the equation. 

You may use them also if there is some strategic importance to self supplying an input of final good or the final good itself. If I'm very dependent on an input and 100% reliant on an outside unrelaible source, but who floods the mkt cheaply, and this puts me in a precarious situation...I may impose a tariff and incentives to encourage at home production of the critical input/product. Many examples...and why many companies vertically integrate.

But to be clear, tariffs are an artificial cost and the general goal should be to take cost out of production.

Well Arch m'lad.  You DO recall agents of Saudi Arabia murdering a US resident and now Trump bypasses Congress to sell them weapons and nuclear technology.  You DO know that..  Right?

Greg


He was a US resident with a green card, but not a citizen. He was a Saudi. And he was the enemy of his own country hiding out here. He was killed the same way we would kill an American spy if we had to. That is the game the countries play. A bit over your head. If it happened under Obama, you would have said nothing.
You people are so foolish. Who do you want to replace Trump? Someone that is for open borders? If so, you are suicidal.

Archie, people that are US residents and Green Card holders come under out protection.  Oh, and Saudi Arabia is a Sharia Law nation.  How do you feel about Trump selling them nuclear technology and weapons?

Someone who is NOT an impulsive, narcissistic, thin-skinned, sociopath.  I really don't think that's asking too much.  Surely the 'Pubs can do better than this clown.

Bring back Obama. He was the greatest, the smartest and the most honest president ever. They told us so. Actually so did Obama.

You mean so they can build two nuclear power reactors? I am sure you thought the false news told you atomic bombs.
And this was talked about before Trump was president. And the energy department has kept it quiet, why, for business interests. Way over the left wingers heads again. Maybe they want less pollution to help global warming cool down that you are so crazy about. Or they will just have better electric power.
And the weapons. Yes. Why? The choice is yours. Do you want to send our troops there to fight Iran, or let them take care of themselves?
Who else helped Saudi’s? And you were all so quiet.
Saudi Arabia is a key U.S. ally in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia's security forces have relied on U.S. equipment, training, and service support for decades, officially as a counterbalance to Iranian military influence in the region, and to help protect the Kingdom from extremist attacks. Between 2011 and 2015, Saudi Arabia was the destination for nearly 10% of all U.S. arms exports.
The left extremist ignorance is beyond believing.
Now who do you want to replace Trump?

But... But...  You were upset about Obama selling weapons to a country that practiced Sharia law.  You're OK with the Saudi's?

List for me all Trump has done that has personally affected you. Do you work, do you invest, and is America a bit safer military wise, are we fighting the socialist party to close our border. What is hurting you and your family?

We have had an Alliance with them since 1933. I don’t like their Islamic theocracy. But it is not my country. And they are fighting their own kind. We don’t have to as much as if they didn’t. ISIS was an example of what could break loose there.
