China takes cautious steps with new tariffs, leaving most to December

Xi Jinping during a meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Osaka

The additional 15 percent tariffs affected a portion of the $300 billion in goods from China that so far had been spared.

The Chinese government has listed American imports targeted for penalties on December 15 if the U.S. tariff hikes take effect.

Jim Rounds is an economist with Rounds Consulting in Tempe. The Federal Reserve Bank of NY in May estimated that USA households would face an additional $831 a year in costs, due to higher prices and reduced economic efficiency caused by the tariff hikes.

It just became 15% more expensive for US companies to import everything from milk to diapers and sports equipment from China.

Amid the newest spherical of tariff will increase between the 2 worldwide locations final month, Mr Trump blasted China in a Twitter thread through which he vowed to order all postal carriers to "SEARCH FOR & REFUSE all deliveries of fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!)". But let's be honest.

"To take on China there has to be a multilateral approach".

Of course, Trump also has found it hard to get China to change its ways.

The National Hurricane Center's outlook for the storm, which was packing sustained winds of 155 miles per hour (250 km/h), called for it to remain over the ocean, sparing the US mainland a direct hit.

A variety of studies suggest the tariffs will cost USA households up to $1,000 a year and the latest round will hit a significant number of United States consumer goods. With existing general duties on autos taken into account, the total tariff charged on USA -made cars would be as high as 50 per cent.

The extra tariffs of five percent and 10 percent were levied on 1,717 items of a total of 5,078 products originating from the US. As consumer spending is the major driver of the USA economy - responsible for 75% of gross domestic product (GDP) growth - analysts predict the new tariffs will contribute to the slowdown.

A report by Panjiva, a supply chain data company that's part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, pointed out that the products in the September 1 group may have been chosen since those items saw some recovery in shipments rather than further decline.

Americans have already turned more pessimistic.

But he said reality could begin to bite with Sunday's new round of tariffs.

Some of the tariffs were later delayed until December in a concession to United States retailers. Target confirmed it warned suppliers it won't accept cost increases arising from China's tariffs. But many smaller retailers won't have the bargaining power to make such demands and will pass the costs to customers.

"Setting trade policy is the business of Congress and the administration, not that of the Fed", Powell said during a speech in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, last month.

But, he added, "If you had to pick a time to do it, this is the worst possible time" because it's when the bulk of holiday goods are brought into the country.
