Tuesday Economics Stories

The Wall Street Journal has two very good pieces today looking at different aspects of our economy. (Well there are more than two good ones, I just wanted to point these two out specifically.)

  • Economist Art Laffer writes about how the regressive tax laws passed during the Great Depression are what we should really be concerned about in avoiding history’s mistakes; and
  • Matt Dolan writes about how Ford has to tear apart imported cars when they enter the U.S. to avoid a tariff instituted in a trade war with the EU.
