Poll results: Tariffs and trade

Despite NRF’s plea, majority of readers support tariffs.

The latest HBSDealer reader poll followed up on a campaign from the National Retail Federation that called for a repeal of tariffs on goods from China, as a tactic to reduce inflation.

“Independent researchers and government agencies agree that ending tariffs is the fastest way to relieve the pressure of higher prices that American businesses, workers and consumers are facing every day,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay.

Arguments to keep tariffs in place include a desire to protect U.S. industry, encourage domestic employment and alter the balance of trade.
