In your recent monthly economic update, you suggested that Trump increasing labour participation by introducing import taxes would create a potentially catastrophic increase in the cost of living. However, wouldn't wages also go up due to the increased labour participation? I think any modicum of increase in wages would be dwarfed by the cost-of-living increase, but that may be mostly my gut intuition.
Wouldn't fuller labour participation lead to higher wages?
Do you like this suggestion?
