Trade and regulation have both been hot issues lately. Since those are two of the main issues on my beat, I’ve been pretty busy lately:
- Inside Sources is syndicating an op-ed arguing that America’s classical liberal institutions are stronger than Trump’s passing populist fancy.
- CEI press release on President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs.
- Which was quoted in an Investor’s Business Daily editorial.
- And in City AM, a daily newspaper in London (see p. 3, cont’d from a story on p. 1).My recent post about Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro was quoted on CNN. Don’t know what day or which program, but one of my colleagues sent along the following transcript:
[00:25:07] To put it another way, it cost about $400,000 per job saved in the steel industry. OK, and the outcome this time doesn’t look much better. According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the levies could save as many as 33,000 jobs in the steel and aluminum industries, this comes at a great cost. Downstream industries that use steel and aluminum such as automobiles, construction (inaudible) will face higher costs, passed on to consumers with higher prices, could cost those other industries 179,000 jobs.
- One of my weekly regulation roundup posts was written up in the Washington Times.
- I went on the Lars Larson show on June 8 to argue for free trade and lower trade barriers,
- Voice of America quotes me in a Chinese-language story here. I show up around 30 seconds into the video clip.
- I appeared on Richmond, Virginia’s John Reid in the Mornings show to talk about tariffs.
- And one from the archives that I missed: back in 2016, the Center for Global Development quoted me on unilateral tariff reduction.
- Also in 2016, Politico’s Morning Money quotes me on then-candidate Trump’s proposed regulatory reform agenda.
I’ll post more as they come.
