Post a 250- to 300-word response to the following debate topic:

The United States must place high tariffs and use quotas to restrict trade with foreign countries.

· List at least 3 benefits from tariffs or quotas (debating in favor of the statement) AND 3 losses from tariffs or quotas (debating against the statement).

· Consider the following issues:

· The strength of the dollar on domestic and global economies
· Benefits from tariffs or quotas
· Losses from tariffs or quotas

· Include two APA references
A tariff is either a tax on imported goods or exported goods (trade tariffs), or in some cases a scheduled list of prices for transportation, utilities, etc. They play different roles in trade policy and economic history, especially in the United States. Often called customs or duties, they were the largest source of federal income from the 1780s to the early 1920s, when Income taxes surpassed those revenues. When used as an economic policy, tariffs not only supply income, but are often used by governments to protect certain businesses or industries, or to control trade between nations and encourage either non-competitive or underdeveloped industries so that they may be competitive on a global basis, thus eventually bringing in more revenue to the country. Tariffs can also be part of a country’s technological or political strategy: In 2002, for instance, the United States imposed a 30% tariff on a variety of steel products for three years, attempting to allow the U.S. Steel industry to recover and export more (Behind, the Steel, 2002). Similarly, countries like China and India use tariffs against the EU and United States to rapidly build their countries into a technological superpower, but causing an imbalance in global economics (Borrus and Cohen, 1997). There are, of course, pros and cons to tariffs and using tariff as policy:


Protects domestic industries in the short-term, especially from unfair competition or subsidized industries.
Creates new jobs in host country, keeping intellectual and fiscal capital local.
Minimizes governmental expenses on social welfare and unemployment because more people are working.


Reducing tariffs on imports allows foreign companies to expand and makes it difficult on U.S. companies to compete.
Tends to discourage innovation and efficiency; consumers may pay a higher price for a particular good.
Foreign countries can then use tariff policies to tax goods being exported, causing problems for manufacturers.
