Luckily, as a consumer mainly buying Echos or pairs of Christmas socks, the answer is not much. (Or at least, the passalong effects should be negligible.)

Our sister site MetalMiner recently launched a new podcast series called "Manufacturing Trade Policy Confidential." In this episode, Tim Brightbill of Wiley Rein LLP takes listeners through China's recent setback at the hands of the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding China's non-market economy status, and why other trade cases and investigations matter in the current political and economic landscape.
