This week we're discussing tariffs and protectionism - two sides of the same gangster coin. Everybody wants to make a profit, and nobody wants bad things to happen to their business. This is why organizations like the North Ward Merchant's Protective Cooperative exist. It's nothing personal - business is business.

I'm glad you understand.
