I’m outraged to learn that US goods are hit with such high import duties while the same goods come into the US duty free. This article tries to explain why it is ok for the US to get the short end of the stick, but it really underscores how urgently action is needed to remedy such tilted tariff rates. Our tariffs should always be reciprocal rates by default. Then specifice quid pro quos can be negotiated with specific countries on specific item. You made the case for the reciprocal trade provisions the President is proposing.
