LETTER: There’s no tariff tooth fairy

Really good article on the interventionist cycle [Bohanon & Curott: Aid to farmers reflects interventionist cycle, Aug. 3]. 

Sadly, in the near term I am left hoping the tooth fairy is real and somehow will pick up all those increases, for RecycleForce is benefiting from increased prices for steel and aluminum scrap. But in the long run, my little short-term win will be eclipsed by increased prices. Keep at it guys—your article will have more impact than my hopeful wishing that there is a tooth fairy out there somewhere.
