The Trump Tariffs
They don't seem particularly smart. We manufacture way more stuff with steel and aluminum than we manufacture those things. Raising the prices on steel and aluminum will make our broader manufacturing less competitive. So while it may help save a few tens of thousands of jobs in the steel industry it may cost hundreds of thousands of jobs in manufacturing. I sure hope there is a bigger game/smarter game plan in place. Maybe their is, but so far I haven't been given enough evidence to believe this has been fully thought out and isn't just more "governing by chaos". Everything I've read from economists and economic pundits I trust seems to indicate this was not smart. I guess we'll see how this plays out.
