Re: Prepare to pay more ....
Nobody wants to see prices go up and we will see it for awhile. What should happen is either the two countries will come to a more reasonable tariff exchange and prices will reflect it or we will start manufacturing these things again. I didn't see anything that we can't produce ourselves or get elsewhere and that would create more blue collar jobs here. It will cost the businesses a little more and they'll probably make less profit but they can't raise things too much or people just won't buy. Most things have a way of sorting themselves out. I can remember making only $6000/yr and got by quite nicely. Today's kid out of school is making about $35,000 and their buying power is less than mine was.
