To those on the DP who support tariffsSubmitted by atrickpay on Sun, 01/11/2009 - 20:18
I don't know if this means anything to you (that's fine if it doesn't), but here's what Ron has said (from here) regarding his strong opposition to them:
"Remember, tariffs are simply taxes on consumers."
"As economist Henry Hazlitt explained, tariffs simply protect politically-favored special interests at the expense of consumers, while lowering wages across the economy as a whole. Hazlitt, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard, and countless other economists have demolished every fallacy concerning tariffs, proving conclusively that unilateral elimination of tariffs benefits the American people."
