Trade Wars: The Truth About Tariffs – Mike Maloney

Download Mike’s best-selling book for free here: https://pages.goldsilver.com/freebook Join Mike Maloney as he examines the latest moves in the US/China trade war, and visits some compelling arguments from the Foundation for Economic Education. To quote their article by Mark J Perry: “It’s a scientifically and mathematically provable fact that all tariffs, at any time and in any country, will harm economic growth, eliminate net jobs, destroy prosperity, and lower the standard of living of the protectionist country because tariffs are guaranteed by the ironclad laws of economics to generate costs to consumers that outweigh the benefits to producers, i.e. tariffs will always impose deadweight losses on the protectionist country (see diagram below, and “An economic analysis of protectionism clearly shows that Trump’s tariffs would make us poorer, not greater“). That is, the reality that tariffs always inflict great economic damage and leave society worse off is not a debatable outcome, rather it’s a provable fact, like the law of gravity.” Read the full article here: https://fee.org/articles/25-reasons-why-protectionism-is-taken-seriously-when-its-actually-a-form-of-economic-suicide/ Thanks for sharing and clicking that ‘Like’ button.
