@Laotione-Whether you have tariffs or don't have tariffs is not important as long as the countries you are trading with are playing by the same rules. If another country is charging high customs tariffs for our goods then we have to charge high tariffs on their goods. We are buying too many products from countries where the governments will not allow our products to be sold freely in their countries.
This is why we have had so many problems with our car companies in this country keeping their heads above water. Next time you are stuck in traffic, look around and notice had many of the cars on the road are made in other countries.
