Lovely discusses Phase 1 US-China trade deal with AFP, NPR, Reuters

Lovely,-MaryTariffs that will remain on goods from China after the Phase 1 trade deal are a big problem for the U.S. economy going forward, Professor Mary Lovely told Reuters. "You’re taxing things that our businesses need to be competitive, and yet you’re saying the point of this is to support manufacturing," Lovely says of Trump’s tariff actions. "But it does seem very clear now that the data is pointing in that direction, that these (tariffs) are having a negative effect on manufacturing." Lovely spoke with multiple international news outlets about the US-China trade deal.
