You’re just mouthing platitudes. You sound like Ed Broadbent during the free trade debate.Because he’s singlehandedly increasing the cost of American businesses and creating uncertainty regarding investment. Businesses are going to be more hesitant to invest if they are uncertain about their costs structure.And drive the country into recession.
Companies will still sell into the United States, other than Hollywood, who sells into China? They don't spend. When they do, it's on Made in China goods.
Crush the Commies and let's help the citizens of China realize liberty and capitalism. Then we can ALL prosper, fairly.
Tariffs are taxes. Taxes going up is bad for business. Republicans used to believe that. But now they’re slavishly following Trump and cheering everything he does, they now think higher taxes are good.
We don't believe in tariffs, only fair play.
Do you think if every nation got rid of all tariffs, barriers and abuses, that libertarians et al wouldn't support it?
China is the greatest abuser by far, of a whole world of big abusers.
No. One can never be ideologically rigid, especially in the face of unorthodox opponents, of which China is a formidable one due to the WTO entry and CEO drive for profits above all else.
Whether it is dealing with Nazis or Communists, history has shown you can't play a nice, fair game when they have no interest in doing so. Japan competed as China is now to a lesser degree, but they saw a naturally rising yen, high costs and premium quality price for Sony, Aiwa and other products. That's capitalism. China is exploiting, stealing, abusing, destroying industries AND keeping the Yuan low to unnaturally impede in the marketplace.
They want to usurp the U.S in all aspects of global dominance, from currency reserve to military might, make no mistake about this. As such, tariffs, tactics, and hell, even if missiles were needed, you have to defend liberty for the world. These communists have no interest in your constitution, economic well being or your health. So, any means necessary to reverse this.
