If you’ve been reading this blog for any extended period of time then you know that I tend to stray away from talking politics, unless those politics may have a direct effect on the automotive industry and/or culture.
Well, it looks like we’ve potentially reached that point again. Don’t worry this isn’t a pro or anti Trump rant.
However, despite what side of the political spectrum you fall under, you have to admit that words like “trade war” and “tariffs” have been thrown around a lot in the news lately.
Many analysts are currently scrambling trying to figure out how a trade war or certain tariffs will impact our economy, especially when it comes to goods made from metal, like cars for example.
So, like the heroes they are, the crew at Donut Media decided to put out an explainer video that covers the history of the relationship between cars and tariffs.
You may be surprised to know that in a way, it wasn’t all bad. It is definitely an interesting watch and I suggest you check it out below.
After watching, let us know your thoughts on the current talk of trade wars and tariffs in the comments below or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype.
