Episode Info:

Want to know why the trade war with China and its tariffs are only going to send more jobs OUT of America? And why they'll make many of your bikes and components and accessories more expensive without doing anything to stimulate our home economy?

In this episode, Silca founder Josh Poertner tells us how he acquired and has rebuilt the legendary brand before we dive deep into how and why the tariffs are bad for business. There's more to it than you think, and it's created a situation that let's domestic materials suppliers gouge their customers, too. It's bad, but knowledge is power, and after hearing this, you  may rethink all those empty promises that come around in the next election cycle.
