    Don't mind Kandahar, he is an globalist/anti-American who also thinks we should allow companies to hire illegal. Basically any economist who agrees with him is a good economist(globalist/anti-American) and any economist who doesn't is lousy.

    Want to start a trade war? Want to know just how many jobs are going to lost from mere indirect fallout?

    A trade war was one of the reasons why the stock market crash of the '29 turned into a massive depression.
    I have to hazard a guess here,"you don`t have a clue,you are clueless,about the economic crash"? I thought so.

The unions should have said, "we need to be able to compete with Honda".

    If people are pissed off that all they can find are McJobs, then maybe they should get a McEducation or some McSkills.

    I'm sick of constantly hearing high school drop outs or kids with associates degrees in "management" or "computer technology" from their local community college complain about how all the good jobs have been shipped overseas.

    Personally I think its time to lift the ban, there arent really any large outbreaks of diseases in the US anymore as far as I know.
    The EU still bans it? That is pure protectionist. Asian countries have long since lifted their respective bans.

    Then you do not remember the huge protests and demonstrations in south Korea just recently, over the government plans to lift the ban.. I have no idea why, I don't really follow the beef issue, but for Europe, its completely unnecessary to have a ban on US meat, after all we have rigid procedures for checking incoming batches of meat, that should be enough to guarantee safety, especially with the disease rate of US meat being so low..

    Depends what you mean by "harm." Economic warfare can be waged by limiting the access to a specific resource where you prior normally had no barriers. Furthermore, trade barriers that restrict the trade of military secrets could come back and hurt us. In terms of pure civilian uses, you're correct, but when we add in geopolitical power struggles, you're not.

    Except that it bars huge amounts of contractors from buying foreign goods for massive projects. How is that not trade restrictions? If we ban companies from buying from foreign producers, they have every right under the WTO to do that to us in other industries.
