Anna Ashton, the Director of Business Advisory Services and Government Affairs with the US-China Business Council, says that although to date American consumers have been shielded from the effects of tariffs that have impacted business-to-business items, the tariffs that went into effect this September and the remainder that will go into effect later this year will be different. “List 4 tariffs are much more broadly consumer-facing and will be felt by consumers eventually, regardless of the decision to delay some of them,” Ashton tells us.
