Tariffs Are Attacks on Property Rights and Freedom

It has been rightfully said that, if the American economy is the 7th Wonder of the World, then American economic ignorance must be the 8th. And…international trade is the most misunderstood of all the issues. Actually, it is pretty simple. To clarify:

In times of war, blockades are used to prevent the enemy from gaining access to certain goods and services.

In times of peace, we do to ourselves with tariffs what we try to do to our enemies with blockades in times of war. — jtl, 419

The issue of free trade illustrates this clearly. Libertarians used to be universally and uninhibitedly for free trade. Whether domestically or across borders, voluntary exchange serves individuals best—and any restriction thereof is a violation of their rights. Thus, any restrictions should always be abolished, and the sooner the better.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
