Ben Carson on Free Trade

Tea Party challenger in Republican primary

 


Stop severe trade imbalance via stiff tariffs

[A friend of mine, a self-made multimillionaire who owns many businesses,] has proposed that we place a stiff tariff on products that are manufactured in other countries and are shipped here fully assembled, while reducing tariffs on products that will require assembly once they reach our shores. Given the severe trade imbalance, such a policy would have a dramatic impact on the American job market.
