    Doesn't it seem strange that American products sold overseas are charge a much higher price to be allowed in many third world countries but when they ship to us we don't stick it to them?

    Well here is the problem, most of the ecconomy of the third world countries are own by corp's who do business here in the usa. So if high tarriffs were added to products comming to our shores it would just be a cut into their profits from corp's they have financial stakes in.

    Otherwise what we are saying here is companies who have shipped jobs overseas who have then ship the products we once made here back to us would have to pick up cost out of their profits. But no we don't do that and it's turned into a great thing for american business that manufactures products overseas now.

    They don't have to Pay higher wages, and most part no benefits to a group of people who have no labor laws or do they have much of any rules on how they pollute their countries.

    The lie that is Free Trade. Even with China, we do not put Tariffs on their products while they have them on all of ours, and we sit around all call it fair trade.

    There must be a balance. Perhaps we should match the tariff for developed countries while letting the Somalia's of the world take advantage of us a little if they manage to export anything.

    I have long favored imposing a tariff which would equal environmental or wage savings U.S. companies enjoy by building cars in Mexico then exporting them to the states. Then again Mexico is a pretty big hell hole as it is.

    It all sounds good on paper, the problem is if we start imposing Tariffs, there will be a tit for Tat response. A trade war will soon follow, and shortly there after an economic Disaster.
