Tire Trouble

Why is this man smiling?

Anyone else catch this story? (more here) Do we really want to get into a protectionist snit with the Chinese? Why must we go down this road every couple of years? I love unionized American steelworkers as much as the next guy but come on already.

As luck would have it the official Econblog ride needs new tires right now (driving back and forth to Pelham so many times will do it) and I am in no mood to pay higher prices because of some political posturing.
