20. Why does Bernie's Tariff Work as Opposed to Smoot Hawley?

Are you saying that Smoot Hawley got a bad wrap or that it is not relevant because Bernie is proposing something different? If so, what?

You list a lot of jargon and ask us to take your word for it, but it sounds like what you are saying is that increasing tariffs on Chinese goods is okay and the Chinese will not retaliate, right?

You seem very erudite so if there is an article that supports your analysis, perhaps one that you wrote, then go ahead and link it.

I want to understand where you are coming from before responding, so if you can bring yourself down to my level, which I admit is pretty low, then I can try to address your points.
