Mary Lovely was featured in the TIME article "As Trump Suspends New Tariffs on Mexico, Experts Warn That His Threats Could Damage the U.S. Economy." Lovely warns that uncertainty might be the "biggest threat" to the U.S. expansion in the aftermath of the recession. "The sad part is we’ve had this incredible expansion," says Lovely. "We had the chance to bring some people back into the workforce who had really been hurt under the recession. And I’m worried that’s going to be jeopardized before those people have a chance to get a full-time job."

Lovely was also interviewed for the KMEG article "Proposed tariffs on Mexico goods could harm Iowa farmers and consumers, economists say."
