In The Atlantic, Mary Lovely explains why lower-income consumers, who tend to buy more goods from countries such as China, might end up feeling squeezed more than their higher-income counterparts. "We know that China is producing goods that are lower quality," says Lovely. "Take any consumer product. Snowboards. A tennis racket. Luggage. Rich people buy stuff from Switzerland. They don’t go to Target to buy a tennis racket from China." Lovely spoke with several media outlets about the latest in the U.S.-China trade war.

Associated Press: "A new round of proposed Trump tariffs would hit US consumers" and "Auto industry cries foul as Trump moves toward car tariffs"
