Opinion: Contrary to popular wisdom, automation is not a job killer in U.S. manufacturing - The Washington Post
I’ve explained why I don’t think the tariffs will help, but I also reject the pervasive argument that automation is just too powerful a job-killing force such that there’s no point in trying to help our factory sector. In fact, according to an important new paper by economist Susan N. Houseman, the argument that “labor-displacing technology,” i.e., robots/AI/etc., has killed factory employment is not supported by the data.

This Ohio factory thought it could bring U.S. jobs back from China. Then Trump got involved. - The Washington Post
Stripmatic’s plight is an example of the hidden costs of Trump’s “America First” protectionism. During decades of increasing globalization, leaders of both political parties reassured critics that the gains from trade were dispersed across myriad less-expensive products — and thus often difficult to identify — while the costs were obvious every time a factory closed.

German Steel Town Fears U.S. Tariffs Would Deal Crushing Blow - WSJ
The steel mill in this Gothic town one hour southwest of Berlin has long supplied Europe, its main market, with wire used in construction. But it could still become a casualty of new U.S. tariffs on steel imports.

Why the Rust Belt economy will suffer in a trade war - Brookings
Exports contribute significantly to the U.S. economy, today representing 12.3 percent of U.S. GDP. And the Rust Belt is at the center of this export economy, generating 26 percent of export-derived GDP (Figure 1).
