Why is this a government issue? Companies already decided that it was worth it to transfer tech and IP when DT in his infinite wisdom steps in and effectively says that they are wrong - by introducing tariffs. Does he know something CEO's don't? If he wants more American jobs wouldn't these transfers increase wages in China and aid that cause? I'm an amateur, but I still can't figure out why this isn't handled by capitalism. Thanks for the post.

For tRump, a trade is good only if he is the winner and the counterpart is the loser. He cannot imagine a win-win trade. The end result of most of his deals is lose-lose.

tRump has already threatened to withdraw the US from the WTO last year. Now with this new ruling, he’ll probably announce the US withdraw very soon.
