One of the advantages of having an unpopular president is that his bad ideas get the criticism that they deserve. Listening to the mainstream media call tariffs a tax on the American consumer was music to my ears. Not sure where these critics were when Trump imposed tariffs on solar panels and washing machines in January. With multinational corportations that source materials and manufacture goods all over the globe, it is impossible to impose restrictions in trade without creating some unintended consequenses.
Below I have included some articles that I particularly enjoyed reading that are critical of recent tariffs and protectionism in general. Please use the comments to share any other articles that you have come across and feel are worth sharing.
