Why Trump is so Clumsy about Fighting ‘Free Trade’

President Trump announced last week that he plans to impose 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum. It’s important to note that any policy pronouncement from this president is done within the paradigm of a real estate wheeler-dealer who sees deals of any kind as a zero-sum game. I win, and you lose; there is no such thing as a good trade deal that works as a win-win for both sides. Expressing the opposite view is Paul Krugman, who writes,

Trade isn’t a zero-sum game: it raises the productivity and wealth of the world economy.

And the corollary also applies as well: any action taken to disrupt the free flow of goods between countries is likely to provoke a counter-reaction, the result being a trade war in which every country loses out.

Improving agricultural productivity will be an essential aspect in the future.
We export goods to other nations when we can do that relatively better than they can and likewise import goods or services that we have a comparative disadvantage in producing.
Production techniques (e.g., irrigation management, recommended nitrogen inputs)
Improving agricultural productivity in terms of quantity and quality (e.g., selection of drought-resistant crops and animals)
Minimizing the effects of pests (weeds, insects, pathogens, nematodes) on crop or animal production systems.
