The thing that has happened 5 times in a row now is when the tariff went to dispute resolution, Canada won every penny back. Each time. What doesnt happen is the US consumer getting his money back.
: Any tariff is suppose to be against the
: country of origin and unless Revell falsely
: puts Made in Germany on the product, a
: tariff would apply to that product as well,
: once it got here.
: Note: neither the country of origin or any
: transhipped-thru country pays the tariff.
: The American consumer pays it. Tariffs are
: really a tax on the consumer, with the idea
: of making competing products (American) more
: desirable because they dont have the tax
: attached. What it really does is raise the
: price to consumers and lessens competition.
: Same thing happens in China when they tariff
: our goods in retaliation .. the price of US
: pork and soybeans goes up for the Chinese
: There have been very few trade wars where
: any country wins. Its usually tit for tat
: and the consumer pays.

: For the first round, I found no mention of
: 'hobby' or 'toy' on the list... though r/c
: radios and motors are on the list.
: 2nd proposed round (100 billion) was said to
: be enough to cover everything else.
: Now, if Revell Germany sells their
: Chinese-made plastic here, I'd expect no
: tariff... maybe?
