discuss the issues of “protectionism, tariffs, and trade barriers” from Chapter 9 based on what is going on in the U.S. and our trading partners, China and Mexico

I’m trying to study for my Economics course and I need some help to understand this question.

Based on the information we covered last week on International Trade, there could not be a better time to discuss many of the issues of “protectionism, tariffs, and trade barriers” from Chapter 9 based on what is going on in the U.S. and our trading partners, China and Mexico to mention a few. This ensuing trade war has HUGE implications for US producers, consumers and the rest of the world.

These are just a few links, all one must do is to google, “trade war implications,” etc., and more than you can ever digest will appear.

Please post a 1-2 paragraph well-thought out discussion in the forum. This can be opionated, to an extent but it should be based on citations and research, which is easily obtained. Please make sure to cite ALL of your sources within your essay.
