The study examines the economic effects of remedies proposed by the U.S. International Trade Commission in the Section 201 investigation on steel. The report shows that protecting the steel industry will cost consumers billions of dollars and cause the loss of thousands of jobs in steel-consuming industries.
“The best study that has been done [on the impact of steel tariffs] is by economists Joseph Francois and Laura Baughman for the Consuming Industries Trade Action Coalition, a group of steel consumers.”
