In a trade imbalance the cost is also passed on to the consumer as the consumer loses power and control to a foreign power.

Yes, a tarrif on Chinese imported steel raises the price of cheap screws.

But that is not the only potential change.

The short term change for suppliers unable to change sources or raise prices spells trouble.

With the USA, the Tarriffs that keep being brought up are primarily tools used for countries that are not acting as our friends. These are meant to bring about a change in attitude than any other purpose. When the table is no longer tilted, their time will fade.
