MTD examines the tariff effect, one year later
It's been more than a year since the U.S. government's tariff on Chinese-made consumer tires went into effect. What impact has the tariff had?
Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob UIrich explores this subject in his editorlal, The tariff effect, one year later, exclusively in the October 2010 issue of MTD, available soon!
"There is ongoing debate about what effect the one-year old tariff on Chinese consumer tire imports has had on the economy in general and pricing in particular," he writes.
In his editorial, Ulrich examines claims from the Tire Industry Association, the United States-China Business Council, the Alliance for American Manufacturing and the United Steelworkers union; tire manufacturer price increases; year-to-date Chinese tire shipments; and other factors related to the tariff, which dropped from 35% to 30% at the end of September.
