In the News: Steel Tariffs

An ABC News story cites some research I did finding that President Trump’s steel tariffs will increase car prices by an average of about $250.

A few weeks ago, ABC News also quoted me on how steel tariffs are affecting the economy:

Saving 33,000 steel-industry jobs costs the economy 179,000 jobs, a net loss of 146,000, Ryan Young, a fellow in regulatory studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told ABC News.

“Basically,” Young added, “the few are benefiting at the expense of the many.”
