Because you just have to have it! Don't try to pretend that you're not that guy pushing a basket-full of imported plastic crap from China through Wal-Mart.

Good question. There should be tariffs which make it economically unwise to produce goods sold here, overseas.

Because Americans don't want to pay $10 a pair for tube socks. We are actually selling bunches of American cars in China now. Do you really want them to raise their tariffs just to get back at us for raising ours?
