On Subsidies, Aid, and International Tariffs
A subsidy is a grant by a particular unit of state, to a private
person or incorporated entity to assist or affect private enterprise,
aside from duly awarded contracts.
Foreign aid is any grant by the state to any foreign state or private
concern, aside from duly awarded contracts.
Except where the immediate military dictates of physical national
defense require it, the state cannot offer domestic subsidies or
foreign aid in cash or kind.
The state must enact tariffs on goods entering or leaving the nation
on three bases: 1) to precisely compensate for any discrepencies
between the exporting nation's taxation level and the domestic level,
2) in direct and balanced response to tariffs or other market barriers
erected by another nation, and 3) to fully compensate for wage
differentials between foreign and domestic laborers in equal roles.
Tariffs are to be paid by the importing party. The state cannot enact
tariffs on goods entering or leaving the nation on bases other than
the above-mentioned and those specified in § Formulation of Taxation.
Proceeds from the above-detailed responsive and compensatory tariffs
are to be precisely offset by reductions in general taxation.
