Not quite. Consumer spending is what makes the economy strong. Tariffs will increase consumer prices for sure, which makes consumers less likely to spend. This has the knock-on effect that companies sell less, make less money, create fewer jobs, and have to raise prices, and the cycle starts again. The US economy benefits from from lower tariffs because it makes things cheaper to get into the country, so more companies sell more things at lower prices. Our main export, interestingly, is our strong consumer market. The rest of the world loves us because we buy their things.
Anyone in the manufacturing side of the Anker family of brands will tell you that the same products manufactured in the US will cost more. There’s a whole basket of reasons for this - exchange rates, supply chains, environmental regulations, labor regulations, etc. Suffice it to say that tariffs won’t make up for the cost savings of all of these factors to the degree that would actually encourage a company to manufacture in the US. Companies will just increase consumer prices so their bottom line doesn’t suffer. That makes things more expensive for you and me, so we stop buying as much stuff. That slows down the economy every time.
