Bush administration. A study by researchers from the Federal Reserve and the University of Chicago found that consumers bore between 125 and 225 percent of the costs of washing machine tariffs, indicating that appliance retailers charged even more than the tariffs had cost them.

Tariffs are a tool for industrialization. Without a planned economy / planned industrialization they are a senseless vindictive act, that is like cutting off one's nose to spite their face.
