#TheRealDonaldTrump and Feldstein Are Wrong About Import Tariffs

When you just gotta try something but forgot to check the history books first.


Donald Trump and Martin Feldstein propose new import tariffs.

Here is the historical proof that this is a bad idea.


Specifically this paragraph:

U.S. imports from Europe declined from a 1929 high of $1,334 million to just $390 million in 1932, while U.S. exports to Europe fell from $2,341 million in 1929 to $784 million in 1932.

Overall, world trade declined by some 66% between 1929 and 1934.

As they said in Hill Street Blues, “Let’s be careful out there.”

In December 2013, the IOC considered expelling India from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

In recent years, the IOC suspended the national Olympic bodies of Kuwait, Ghana and Panama for political interference, but all were eventually reinstated.

In 1970, the IOC formally expelled South Africa from the Olympics. The country returned to the fold at the 1992 Barcelona Games.

Lots of questions.  Few answers.
