Import tariffs on Chinese goods to make them as expensive as American produced goods. Bring the jobs back home.
ETA: This is somewhat off-topic but I wanted to respond to groingrinder.
I have stated in other posts of my own that the US should not allow things into the country that we can make here ourselves or have a high enough
tariff on them to ensure that our own entrepreneurs can have enough of an advantage to keep many people employed here.
I feel that there should be a law such that if it is a product that we can make here then we can't import it unless we already have a non-monopolistic
manufacturing base for that item here. So basically if two or more US companies are making a product then feel free to import a competing model with
the higher tariff. That could also force a foreign company to set up manufacturing here, using American skilled labor, if they have a product that is
not already made here and they feel that strongly that we americans need that item. That would help keep companies from dumping cheap goods into our
economy as they would have to be of sufficient quality to make us buy them from outside and cover the tariffs etc.
