International Trade Game

Think it's easy to make the tough decisions? It's your turn to call the shots.

Who knew tires could be such a drag? You're the President of the United States and you've got a serious headache on your hands. Cheap Chinese tires are cornering the market and American producers are demanding you slap down a tariff on their Chinese competitors to save American jobs. But a new tire tariff might have all kinds of unintended consequences, and you're not sure what to do.

Now you've got to make a tough call. No matter what you choose, a whole bunch of people are going to be mad at you. Your appointment book is blowing up and you've got to face an army of lobbyists and advisers. Pass the Excedrin.

Play our International Trade Game and make your call on the great tire debate.
