I wonder if kids taking economics are appreciating all this tariff talk

Going on w/our markets? It’s been a while since professors can discuss real life examples of some economic principles. It’s interesting to hear in the news the different spins of how changing one thing can effect & change another. You would think all these theories would have been proven long ago yet here we are still debating economic principles that Adam Smith outlined in his “Wealth of Nations” published in 1776.

If anyone reads the link I found it surprising that the Rothschild’s funded both England’s Wellington & France’s Napoleon. Not only because the Rothschild’s made money no matter who was victorious but because England didn’t view it as treasonous for funding the enemy. Maybe I’m missing something but that’s what it seems like to me but I’m no expert on economics or history.

This subject may be to deep for a message board. It’s just all this Tariff talk has piqued my interests. It would be fun to sit in on a few economic classes today. I’d probably appreciate them more today than I did years ago.

Not trying to go UWS.
