umair haque

Wow, I thought that just Americans were taken by simplistic Trump promises. But sadly even British are using "they are just going to be poorer". I guess everyone goes shopping in this forum. So do anyone here thinks that every grocer will raise foreign imported food by 30%? Does everyone thinks that UK government tariffs will go to fancy house of lords parties? Mr Haque, your rational is at best high school simplistic and at worst simply silly. To make a decent economic case go back to any change in trade and taxation in recent times. See how a simple tax or trade tariff does not cause anyone to be "poorer" -- but the British writing was enjoyable (sarcasm intended)
