“Critics said that if implemented, such a tax would mean that the wall’s cost ultimately would be borne by U.S. consumers.”(Washington Post, January 26, 2017; chosen by Matt Drudge)
This statement about a possible import fee on goods shipped from Mexico seems a warning to anyone who complains about nothing being manufactured in their own country or locale. The consumer is king some say. But no one mentions the “rock star” C.E.O. who pays the consumer’s wages, the real king, commanding extra national low-cost production that increases profit and the ever-increasing earnings distance between their income and their employees stagnating wages.
