Andrew Cohen discusses tariffs and trade on WAER

Andrew Cohen 2016Andrew Wender Cohen, Dr. Walter Montgomery and Marian Gruber Professor of History, was a guest on WAER for the segment "Canadian Diplomat and SU Prof: Tariffs Will Cause Damage to Consumers, Workers, and Industry." "American manufacturers can raise the price of their steel to match the new price created by the tariff on foreign products," says Cohen. "So it increases their profits, and the hope is that they distribute that to their workers. At least, that's the logic according to the Trump administration. Economists tell you that won't necessarily happen." 06/06/18
