    Maybe there is a reason for the tariffs, huh?

    Jack: I'm not sure which side of the tariff debate you sit - but as a clearly intelligent bloke, I assume that you are ruled by reason and cogent argument. Personally, I admit to being somewhat of an "eco-rat" (it's a shortened version for the Aussie term "economic rationalist") -so my preference is for liberal policies that allow markets to operate with the least amount of Government intervention.

    My problem with how I understand Mr Trump's tariff proposal is that I don't see why it won't just mean more profit for American industrialists and higher prices for American consumers? Fact is that most manufacturers of stuff (be they American, or foreign) are driven by the principle of price maximization and cost minimization. The thing that provides a discipline to this ethic should be unrestrained commercial competition and minimal government intervention only where commercial competition is found wanting.

    When countries were developing their international trade credentials and their fledgling industries (as was the case last century)- modest tariffs had a legitimate role. But in the 21st century and for a country which has one of the world's most significant economic markets -is tariff imposition really in USA's best interest?

    It's all so eloquently summarized in the principle of comparative advantage

    Don,

    "credentials "
    What like good engineering judgement?


    Personally, I'm for low cost trade but it needs to be with balance in addition to anti dumping enforcement and indeed markets are disrupted worldwide by such over production to force a burn out strategy & that wastes resources and destroys the infrastructure + environment by means of cheating the rules of the game & that is captured by essentially self regulation.

    "We swear it comports, honest, signed the dumper!"

    Right?

    What Trump really wants is no tariffs in either direction. Tariffs on cars coming into the US from from Europe have been 2.5%, while tariffs on cars coming into Europe from the US have been 10%, and it's been that way for decades.

    Trump is playing poker. "I'll see your 10% and raise you 15% more."
