Real tariffs

The tariffs that should have been here for years.
Internal tariffs —- let’s call them increased sales taxes.
Companies owned primarily within the US that choose to manufacture elsewhere and bring production back into the US for sale.
There should be a penalty, all along, or. If you need a different viewpoint, an incentive for building US economy, jobs and tax income to fund our public needs.

Re: Real tariffs

While the argument would mainly be that the costs would just be passed along in prices, it would serve as a competitive penalty for those companies "outsourcing" production or parts of production in another country, at least relative to those companies whose production is entirely domestic.

Re: Real tariffs

The   complex  backdrop  of  economics  has  the  standard  of  ''preaching  to  the  choir'' -   @  example  of   percentage  of  increase  an   export  product  while  market  loss  domestically  is  ignored  ?  ? 

 

Label   word  Smith-ing  brilliance  being  another  - maybe  ?

Re: Real tariffs

It is hard to ask Congress to impose it when we the people won’t when we buy.
But I do remember Toyota’s boost in sales when they built plants in the US.

There is a myriad of ways to say what accountability is.

Re: Real tariffs

But. I don't think you need all that information. It's functional, and if you read it carefully and incorporate it into your business strategy, you'll definitely get better results. And if you have people from different countries working for you, then international payroll is not a problem. However, I am one of those people who thinks it's better to pay a professional to handle your company than to read many books about everything and be average about it. You can see in the readers what is better for you - a strategy of learning everything from scratch or professional help.
