Yahoo Finance ^ | 12/31/19 | Adriana Belmonte

A new study from the Federal Reserve found that President Trump’s tariffs are backfiring.

According to the Fed study, the tariffs that went into effect in 2018 have led to not only higher producer prices but also a loss of jobs across the U.S. — particularly in manufacturing. . .

The vast majority of ‘studies’ are conducted by idiots that don’t know fact from opinion.

Trump himself said there would be short-term damage to certain parts of our economy with tariffs so there is no “gotcha” here.

Trump also said the short-term pain would lead to long term gains through new trade agreements and policy. Trump has also stepped in to mitigate the short-term damage when appropriate.

They can spin it all they want, but he is playing for the long game and has said so in speech and demonstrated it with action.

A large portion of industrial production is based on long-term assets. With any period of rapid economic growth and expansion a large segment of manufacturing will experience rapid growth followed by a leveling off of sales and production.

A construction company for example is unlikely to purchase new bulldozers or other heavy equipment every year as these are long term assets with a useful life of thousands of hours. This is true across industry and it must be baked into the cake even with what has been an unexpectedly vigorous growth of our economy.

Right, I get it. But the US was stuck in a globalist rut of crappy trade deals and allowing China to eat our lunch. It’s as if globalism wasn’t destroying our industries!! Oh no, it’s tariffs. Breaking that pattern was NEVER going to be without pain. So according to a study, the long term benefits of breaking the globalist grip is non-existent.

In my mind it’s akin to saying that the adopt kicking a drug habit was bad and he/she would have been better off staying addicted.

The US has economic power. Trump has employed that power. Like employing/projecting any power there is a cost.
