Several weeks ago, the Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). This is considered an important case by many, because it is expected that the Court will rule that public-sector unions cannot collect money from non-members.
Recently, President Trump has made headlines by calling for across the board 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum. He also suggested that trade wars are good and that the United States can easily win them. I’m not going to go into the math of why trade wars are bad for all parties and free trade is a net good. Instead, as a fan of free trade, I’m going to offer a compromise solution that I believe is both politically feasible and economically rational: free trade with free countries.
