The fix is as simple as restoring the protective import tariffs our founding fathers had in place, and putting Americans back to work for Americans.
But given that neither candidate or party gets this, it's as likely as growing turnips that grow roots of pure gold.
Not exactly. The first tariffs were exclusively for purposes of revenue, not to protect domestic industries.
The War of 1812 brought forcibly to America's attention that importing all or most of its necessary military supplies from potential enemies might not be the best possible idea.
Also at about this same time the Brits were "dumping" goods into America because the French had imposed a blockade of British imports on their empire.
The first real protective tariff was passed in 1816, quite a long time after the Founding, and reached its peak in 1828, when A. Jackson squashed an incipient southern revolt led (as usual) by SC.
Rates went down after that, right up to the WBTS.
