With a 20% or more tariff this particular instance tariff's could work to our benefit. At 20% it MAY be worthwhile for American Manufacturers to move back to the US..
If I was a Mayor of a major city, or a governor of state like Maryland I think I'd be talking to GM and Ford NOW about tax breaks and incentives for when they do move to move here.
Not only do they save themselves from the 20% tariff, but also get to enjoy a 10 year tax break from the state.. maybe even Federal if Trump gets his admin involved at that level.
I bet we see many more industries moving to the likes of SC and FL the next 2 or 3 years.. while states like CA sit and bitch about how unfair that all the jobs are going somewhere else.
Can't do much about perishable goods, or beer, but durable good..
