What's in your wallet? Less money, that's for sure.


[www.reuters.com]
The official tariff list includes thousands of product categories, ranging from cuts of meat to furniture and auto parts. Here are examples - among many others - of consumer products affected in nine selected categories:

* The biggest sector affected is a $20 billion-plus category of internet modems, routers and other data transmission devices. * Printed circuit boards are also high on the list.

* Also affected are burglar and fire alarms.

* U.S. consumers looking to buy new lights for their home may also see a price hike, as tariffs will be increased on lamps and lighting fixtures both made “of base metal” and not.

* If the trade dispute does not get resolved before the end of the year, American shoppers may also have to pay more for their holiday decorations: one of the categories requires tariff hikes for “lighting sets of a kind used for Christmas trees,”

* Also on the list are household vacuum cleaners made in China.

* Shoppers can also expect to pay more for handbags of any kind made in China, another tariff category.

* Consumers will be affected by added tariffs on all products in the category of trunks, suitcases and luggage.

I’m shopping in Mexico or Canada.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

geez... you are making it sound like WE are going to be paying for the tariffs, not China. That's not what the President said.

The joke’s on China! We’ll all just buy those things from proper U.S. companies, as intended.






I’ll find example Amazon.com links um, soon-ish.

Will it make the wall cost more? China is a global leader in making a wall.
