Richard Epstein contrasts two recent actions by the Trump Administration the imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminum, and the blocking of a foreign companys attempts to take over an American tech firm to demonstrate when national security concerns justify restrictions on trade ... and when they dont.

Screw that nuanced globalist crap.
Build a Wall.
Build a Wall of Tariffs.
In a little over 2 weeks, the next FReepathon will begin.
We need to finish this one first.
Come on FReepers, lets do this!!!
Please take your QUACK ECONOMICS CON some where else.
We tried this dumb@ss idea and it de-industiralized the United States. It killed what pulled the United States out of the great depression, win World War II, a Super Power, etc....
It empowered Communist China, who had tariffs, to get everything that is now a threat to us. Thanks to con artist like Professor Richard Epstein.
Destroying all the jobs in the United States and empowering Communist China is NOT a good economic plan. It’s just dumb!
We have tried your plan and it has been a COLOSSAL FAILURE from the start.
NO THANK YOU!
“Me thinks thou doth Protest too loudly, sir.”
Tell us all what you REALLY think of Professor Richard Epstein!
“Tell the Truth, or At Least Don’t Lie.”
5% unemployment is considered full employment. We are currently at 4.1%.
Could it be China destroyed the U.S. electronics industry and other industries? Yes.
Just one city in China makes 90% of the worlds electronics ,proof:
The USA Has no electronics industry therefore the USA is not even a country anymore much less the world economic power or a country able to fight war. So free traders want more of this , to destroy what is left if any other industry in the USA.
These villains like Clinton and Obama have turned the USA once the greatest manufacturing power into a debt overloaded 3rd world country in which we sell hamburgers to each other and each owe $900,000 to China if you add up all the debt the 21 trillion in federal gov debt, state debt, consumer debt etc.
None? Nothing? Zero? There are no electronics companies at all in the US?
Apple alone is worth nearly $1 trillion.
You nailed it on the head!
In the USA it would take a decade imo to build the supply chains for a viable electronics industry in order so that we could even make our own electronics needed to sustain a war or our economy ourselves in this century without depending on China.
You think manufacturing know how just can be built over night?
All the supply chains for manufacturing electronics are in China in one city as my link shows :
We’re in deep trouble.
(with all due respect)
I see restaurants including fast food joints everywhere in America in every city. In my city it's mostly all restaurants on almost every block. So there are a lot of people willing to work like slaves for 8 dollars an hour.
I worked in a restaurant. It's hell ,dirty, hard work , cooking oil spills over your face and hands burning and scarring .All this for 8 dollars an hour.
Then rent or mortgage is $1000 a month, Houses are $300,000 . Thanks to barack Obama the USA is a 3rd world country.
There is massive widespread poverty crime , in this city mostly caused by immigrants and China imports and government regulations on U.S. businesses.
Most things i look at i see “made in China” .
All this is from years ,decades of my personal experience. This is confirmed with the links i showed and many other research online.
If you add up all the debt the federal 21 trillion, state debt, consumer debt , etc. every American’s share is $900,000 owed to China
The USA was the top economy and manufacturing power all the way until the 1990’s until the USA started “free trading” with China and NAFTA (Clinton).
The city i live in is a hell hole ,poverty, crime, immigrants , everything i buy made in china, jobs only in restaurants for 8 dollars an hour
The USA was on top of the world until the late 1990’s , the most affluent society, most opportunity , highest living standards.
Bill clinton started the decline.
” everything i buy made in china, jobs only in restaurants for 8 dollars an hour.”
Don’t forget the jobs at the Nail Salons nestled in the bottom corner offices of giant abandoned factories.
