Trade wars are a symptom of the unjust distribution of ASSETS; i.e. who needs a job mining, creating, growing or selling real wealth to foreigners when one does not desperately need a job in the first place?

Good critique of JG from Rodger Mitchell: https://mythfighter.com/2018/05/02/the-mmt-jobs-guarantee-con-job/

If people are hired only because they need jobs, rather than because the job needs people, what prevents them from being make-work? Rodger Mitchell

Nails it!

But not just make-work - negative work since otherwise useful time is destroyed.

But that's the point, isn't it? To destroy time? Similar to milk-dumping in the 1930's to raise milk prices?

Sure let's have generous infrastructure spending but on bulldozers, not JG workers with spoons.
