No because it would hurt American businesses

by making them even more dependent. I don't want American business to depend on the kindness of strangers. I want American business to kick bubblegum, take names, and dominate because they simply out compete.

Let the French and the Japanese coddle their industries. They can't do it forever, and they just make the industry even weaker in the global market.

Just like with children, if you spoil them, they get spoiled.

If you want US business to be the strongest don't coddle them, tariff them, protect them, welfare them.

If some other country subsidizes the exports of an industry, say steel, then let US businesses buy the cheap steel and make something.

That is a wealth transfer FROM them TO us..

If they subsidize the export of cars, fine, buy the cheap cars and use the savings to invest somewhere else.

That is a wealth transfer FROM them TO us..

They are taxing their own people, to make the prices lower for those products for us to buy. It's a fools game and we should thank them for being fools.

This 'buy American' crap is as misguided as the 'Buy African American' schemes. It just makes the supposed 'beneficiaries' weaker by protecting them from market competition.
