Should the united states use tarrifs and quotas to restrict foreign competition for business?
Statement: I believe that tariffs and quotas should be use to protect United States businesses from foreign competition. I believe there should be some government control over trade. The reason why tariff and quota should be use to a certain extent is because it maintain the United States national defense, protect United States citizen jobs, and protect the environment. US citizens won't become relent on foreign goods because tariffs will keep foreign goods equally priced to domestic goods, balancing out foreign and domestic purchases. It will also protect US citizens jobs because businesses will stay in business. Lastly, the environment will be protected because less packaging and fuel will be use to transport goods overseas or by plane.
Is this statement valid or invalid?
