Our current president has repeatedly said he wants zero tariffs worldwide, the issue is the countries we've been trading with have an oversized amount of tariffs on our products. At some point "asking nicely" doesn't get you anywhere so more drastic measures were taken.

There was a time when 90% of the US government was funded by tariffs...with no individual income taxes.

Do you really want to go back to a 1912 model? Reality has changed quite a bit since then, no?

I doubt the store would know, but the Wake ABC should.

clicking through his link, it *looks like* they establish prices every quarter, with this one coming out October 4.

What has changed? Except that we (US) are involved in everyone's business, everywhere, with the trillion+ a year in spending to prove it.

Foundationally, a lot has changed in 100+ years, especially in terms of how societies function.

However to your point, do you think the MiC will just give up their desire for endless war/regime change/“everyone’s business”

I can't believe thats a serious question, but one thing thats changed is our understanding of the role that increased tariffs played in worsening the Great Depression.

Well, given that "the Wake ABC" runs the stores, I'm pretty sure the store manager could answer the OP's question.

Smoooooooooooooooot.


Although, to be fair, Smoot-Hawley was after we implemented a Federal Income tax in 1913.


ETA - Smoot-Hawley was as bad (impact wise) as Glass-Steagall was being repealed. Short sighted to say the least.

I forgot about this but lucky me. I just bought 4 bottles of scotch at my local ABC store. (2) Macallan 12, (1) Aberlour 16 and (1) Johnny Walker Black. (don't ask, it's decent)

Nice choices.


Have you ever had Highland Park 18 (or even 12)?

ETA - and you could do way worse than JW Black.
