This the best thing you can do. Tariffs, regulations and other government imposed solutions just cause more problems. It all boils down to free will. You have the choice who you vote for, what you buy (except for Obamacare, which is mandatory now).

Then we might as well start growing our own food, making our own clothes, only use local resources and do away with the whole world trade system. Since everything we need is here in our own backyard what do we even need the "world economy" for anyways? No need for money if an individual produces everything they need for themself. Of course, if people starting changing their lifestyle in mass numbers and stopped pushing money uphill to the rich the rich might not care for that happening and put a stop to it by force.
