Professor Mary Lovely says that a suspension of tariffs would be aimed at U.S. manufacturers that import items to assemble new goods."The tariffs cost firms $900 per worker per year, so you can think of it as an easy way to put $900 per worker back in the companies that are employing those workers," she says. Lovely was interviewed for the Marketplace segment "Despite reports, trade adviser denies plans to suspend tariffs." 03/26/20
