• There's a fatal flaw at the heart of Trump's auto tariff strategy

    4 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    A new Commerce Department investigation into foreign car imports is supposed to set up a win-lose scenario for the US in NAFTA negotiations.
    The problem is that's not how trade deals work.
    Canada and Mexico have already threatened to walk away from negotiations if Trump overplays his hand. This auto tariff could trigger that.

    This week the Trump administration announced that it will initiate an investigation into whether or not imported cars pose a threat to national security under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act.
