Against_eu and 1 visitor disagree.
also agreed, although if a country is guilty of manipulation, some form of retribution is warranted. maybe not tarrifs, maybe tarrifs. I'm open to ideas here.
assuming we all follow the rules, tarrifs are bad. but equal trade deficits have nothing to do with rules and it's stupid to expect it, how exactly are poor countries supposed to buy equal amount of products as rich countries buy from them, it's stupid. (sorry a bit off topic)
agreed. it protects certain people at the expense of the general good.
