    Big Mistake

    06/18/2002

    ABSTRACT:

    In “Big Mistake,” Murdock writes about the unintended consequences of Bush’s steel tariffs. While the tariffs have been a boon to inefficient U.S. steel companies, they have harmed dozens of other industries, such as shipping and manufacturing – not to mention consumers. “George W. Bush's cold-rolled capitulation is his presidency's biggest error,” Murdock writes. “It is openly political, nakedly statist and far left of Bill Clinton who ignored the steel industry's protectionist demands. Bush should acknowledge and reverse his mistake.”
