Please answer following two question, each within 140 words minimum. make sure to include reference for each.
1. Do you think that there should be some level of protection of our US based industries? Or should we outsource everything and focus on R&D as the main driver of our economy?
2. Without tariffs, these industries would likely be in trouble if they continued to produce within the US. But even if this was the case, even though there would be costs savings, do you think the quality of production imported into the US would be lower than the current US protected production? In the short run? Long run?
