19. Our domestic cars are commonly
twice as high priced in the Japanese market than here. Same with motorcycles. I'm not much on doing searches on the internet but you can find the information. I'm not sure about Europe but Asia puts a huge tariff on our manufactured goods. But they might not call it a tariff. Japan, for instance, individually certifies every U.S. car for emissions to boost the price. They have all sorts of non-tariff-tariffs.
