The Conversation: Consumers to pay the price as Canada punches back against U.S. tariffs

The U.S. has not formally placed tariffs on Canadian goods other than aluminum and steel and it is difficult to assess the impact of a few fractions of a cent added to the cost of a beer can or a few million dollars to the price of a Boeing commercial jet.  Canada’s counter-tariffs, on the other hand, touch a range of daily consumer products that could have a material impact on prices for Canadian consumers.

In a recent article for The Conversation, Dr. Bernard Wolf, Professor Emeritus at the Schulich School of Business demonstrates the real-world impact of tariffs to Canadian consumers on products ranging from chocolate to pickles. Check out Dr. Wolf’s article via the link below:
