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.
