Pedal to the Metal: Commerce Recommends Revving Up Trade Measures on Steel and Aluminum [February 21, 2018]   [open pdf - 395KB]

"The Trump Administration is currently considering whether to impose tariffs and/or quotas that commentators have suggested could dramatically affect both American steel and aluminum manufacturers as well as American businesses that import more than 30% of the 100 million tons of steel and more than 90% of the 5.5 million tons of aluminum they use each year. As the world's largest importer of steel, any such action will not only have ramifications for the global economy, but, according to several reports, could also lead to retaliatory tariffs on American exports, such as Kentucky bourbon, Wisconsin cheese, orange juice, and Harley-Davidson motorcycles."
