Last week, President Trump announced his intention to place tariffs on steel and aluminum. Unfortunately for the president—and everyone else, should these tariffs be imposed—more than a century of economic data make it very clear that tariffs are a net negative for the economy.

Join Antony Davies and James Harrigan as they talk about this and more on this week's episode of Words and Numbers.
