Tariffs on Canadian Softwood Lumber Hitting U.S. Homebuyers Hard
Heritage 2021.05.20 원문보기
The tariffs―dubbed “countervailing duties”―are meant to protect the U.S. lumber industry from what they claim are unfair Canadian subsidies.

The result is suppressed activity in the U.S. homebuilding industry, fewer construction jobs, and fewer options for homebuyers, who may be forced to settle.

Lingering protectionism, as shown in the Canadian softwood lumber case, threatens to undermine much-needed greater economic dynamism.
