Blatant Tariff Lying with a Picture

I forgot to link to it yesterday, but using data a colleague collected Andy Hall made a helpful visualization of the tariff data he put into a previous post. If, like me, you have a little trouble imagining numbers in proportion to each other it’s a great way to see just how incredibly New York (and to a vastly lesser extent, other Northern ports) dominated revenue generation.

It also transpires that Craig Swain had the same numbers a few years ago, and a broader a treatment of the issue.

Update: The previous version of this post mistakenly credited the visualization to Andy’s colleague. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for pointing to this. The data came from Eric, but the image is my creation.
