    Case Write Up: The Politics of Trade in Steel 1. I believe the Bush Administrative had a good solid reason for imposing tariffs in March 2002 on steel imports. As of a result of that decision, Bush was able to maintain 160, 000 jobs in America. Imposing the tariffs was not the problem in this case study. I believe that the actual problem was the percentage that was charged. Instead of being charged with a 30 percent tariff, the European Union should have had a less percentage. This way the Bush...
