I’ve never heard the potential benefits of tariffs put this way before.

For the longest time, I could never understand whether free trade or tariffs was a better idea, but the other day, I saw this post on the Aussie Nationalist blog, and it makes some convincing arguments. Two of my favorite arguments and what I think are some of the most convincing arguments were the idea that tariffs would allow us to do away with taxes on domestic goods and that if foreign goods are taxed but domestic ones are not, it’d encourage foreign companies to move manufacturing back here (so more jobs!). Honestly, giving our current policy of free trade for the past few decades and the fact that we have trade deficits with several large countries, I think it’s worth a try. Anyways, take a look at this Aussie Nationalist post to get the full details on why this may be a good idea for America.
