Voice of the people: Tariffs can provide economic stimulus

November 19, 2018

I have enjoyed the debate series between Joe (Yurgine) and Ken (Johnston).

One of the points that Joe brings up frequently is the trade tariffs.

Unfortunately, the only reason those farmers have access to those foreign markets is because of cheap energy in the form of oil. And oil is a resource we are rapidly running out of. Those foreign markets would become inaccessible at some point in the future.

The tariffs could be simulating the kind of economic environment that could be our future. It seems like it would be a good idea to rebuild America’s manufacturing base before the actual crisis arrives.
