We’ve talked extensively with Omar Nashashibi of The Franklin Partnership and others to record a series of short videos and audio clips that can help you better understand the goal of tariffs, their likely impact on inflation, the current and near-term trade environment, potential global quotas, and strategies for staying competitive.
Mexico and China
The U.S. Trade Representative recently requested consultations with Mexico over promoting state-owned energy companies at the expense of American businesses that could lead to billions in tariffs. Meanwhile, the Biden administration responds in court on the China tariffs as it continues to consider whether to lift some of the 25% or 7.5% tariffs on over 10,000 imports. Our tariff policy correspondent in Washington, DC, bring us the latest.
China, Kenya, USMCA, Forced Labor
As businesses await word from the White House on whether they will keep all tariffs in place on Chinese imports, our trade policy correspondent in Washington, D.C., discusses what else is on the current trade agenda — including dialogue among the U.S., Canada, and Mexico; trade talks with Kenya; and the government’s review of both the tariffs on Chinese imports and foreign steel and aluminum.
The Latest Updates on Russia, IPEF, and Mexico
President Biden announced an increase in tariffs on Russia, continued to press his Indo-Pacific Economic Framework, and is reviewing Mexico’s policies on labor and energy.
