Memo to Congress: Affordable Imports from China Are A Godsend, Not Grounds for a Trade War
From Jeff Jacoby in today's Boston Globe:
"The policies of the Chinese government make it possible for Americans to acquire a vast array of products at affordable prices. For that high crime and misdemeanor, the US House of Representatives voted last week to punish China.
Affordable imports are a godsend, not grounds for a trade war. It’s distressing that so many members of Congress have trouble understanding that. Maybe a return to private life would help them figure it out."
