A while back, I wrote a text explaining why trade wars isn’t a game of winning or loosing but rather, that both sides of such a conflict are more or less losers. It’s published in swedish on the web magasine Smedjan owned by the think tank Timbro, linked here.
One of the key examples I touch on comes from the book the armchair economist by Steven E Landsburg: on how cars can be grown in the fields of Iowa, english link here. It’s a simple methaphor, but a brilliant way to illustrate who wins and looses on trade, why it deserves to be read by many more. As I couldn’t find a swedish version I wrote one myself.
