Donald Trump calls for a 25% tariff on Chinese products
Howard Richman, 1/11/2011

Donald Trump called for a 25% tariff on Chinese products on the Michael Savage radio show last night and in turn received Savage's endorsement for President:

In the interview, Trump comes off as forceful and competent. If he discovers the scaled tariff and campaigns upon a plan to balance budgets and trade at the same time, he could win the election and then fix the American economy.

WE NEED TO PUT A 25% TARIFF ON CHINESE GOODS TO JUMPSTART OUR INDUSTRIES ONCE AGAIN. WE NEED TO SERIOUSLY BE RID OF MR. OBUTTHEAD,OBATOMY,OBAMAREXIC ONCE AND FOR ALL. HE IS TRULY ALONG WITH JUST ABOUT ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS AN ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I BELIEVE HE WAS NOT BORN IN THIS COUNTRY. MR. TRUMP, DO YOU REMEMBER THE MOVIE STARRING FRANK SINATRA CALLED " THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE" WELL FICTION HAS JUST TURNED TO REAL LIFE. WE HAVE THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT FOR REAL. A MAN WHO IS ANTI-ISRAEL FOR SURE. HE IS ANTI-AMERICAN IN HIS APPROACH TO FIXING OUR ECONOMY. HE WOULD RATHER APPEASE ENVIORNMENTAL EXTREMIST GROUPS SUCH AS THE SIERRA CLUB AND THE CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY THAN JUMP START THE OFFSHORE AND ON SHORE DRILLING THAT OUR COUNTRY DESPERATELY NEEDS. IN 1973 IT WAS ALREADY PROVEN THAT IF YOU TAKE THE OIL WE HAVE OFF-SHORE, ON SHORE  AND IN THE ANWR IT WOULD ADD UP TO 880 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL WHICH AT THIS POINT WOULD TAKE US ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE 21ST CENTURY AND BEYOND! PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT. IT WILL BE A CHALLENGE TO GET THE U.S BACK IN THE BLACK. IF YOU TAKE YOUR OWN PRINCIPLES WHICH HAVE MADE YOU AN EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN AND APPLY THEM TO RUNNING OUR NATION LIKE A BUSINESS, WE SHOULD HAVE PROSPERITY FOR DECADES EVEN CENTURIES TO COME. I WILL DEFINETELY VOTE FOR YOU!

  You sound like the same type of ignorant fool that was touting Obama to be the country’s savior just a couple of years ago.  Did you actually consider the consequences of such a decision? The vast majority of Americans rely on several of the Largest US companies such as Wal-Mart, Target, BJ's, Sam's Club, etc for most of their purchases. These companies import in the majority of their products from China.  A Tariff would simply increase the cost of products Americans buy every day. Not to mention what it would do to all of the US companies and their employees that rely on importing products from China. I'm not simply talking about the few larger house hold names. There hundreds of millions of employees of companies in the US that rely on global trade to provide money for their family.  The world is global economy now. Imposing a tariff on China is a typical knee jerk reaction to the problem. Personally, you’re little rant with your "Cap Key" locked shows you’re incapable of having an intelligent conversation about the topic and prefer to just spew nonsense.

Comment by George, 8/21/2015:

Trump's a smart man.  Has he heard of the Smoot-Hawley tariffs just before the Great Depression?


Comment by Jack M , 1/11/2016:

Who gets to keep 25% tariff, Donald Dumb? Uncle Sam or you? The day you become president, our inflation rate will shoot by 25%. Do any of your fans realize that?

  • [An] extensive argument for balanced trade, and a program to achieve balanced trade is presented in Trading Away Our Future, by Raymond Richman, Howard Richman and Jesse Richman. “A minimum standard for ensuring that trade does benefit all is that trade should be relatively in balance.” [Balanced Trade entry]

Discusses why trade deficits matter; root of the trade deficit; the “ostrich” and “eagles” attitudes; how to balance trade; taxation of capital gains; the real estate tax; the corporate income tax; solving the low savings problem; how to protect one’s assets; and a program for a strong America....

    Atlantic Economic Journal:

  • In Trading Away Our Future   Richman ... advocates the immediate adoption of a set of public policy proposal designed to reduce the trade deficit and increase domestic savings.... the set of public policy proposals is a wake-up call... [February 17, 2009 review by T.H. Cate]
