What’s Really Going On (Inspired by Mark Perry)

Here’s a letter to the Washington Post; (the report’s printed headline differs somewhat from the on-line headline):

Your page A22 headline today that reads “Trade complaint results in stiff tariffs on Chinese solar panels [1]” is more confusing than enlightening.  A clearer version would read “Complaint by politically powerful interest group results in stiff taxes on Americans who buy Chinese solar panels.”
