In 1963, US President Johnson imposed a 25 % tax (almost 10 times the average) on potato starch, dextrin, brandy, and light trucks, resulting in VW vans and pickups disappearing from the U.S. market. Why?
France and West Germany had placed tariffs on imports of US chicken
In 2018, the "Chicken Tax" on light trucks remained in effect, having protected U.S. domestic automakers from foreign light truck production and reduced pressure on Detroit to introduce vehicles that polluted less or offered increased fuel economy. Various countries and companies increasingly circumvent the tax.
