Tariffs – The Wrong Approach

Jul 2, 2018

The US Chamber team has analyzed the exports of each state subject to retaliatory tariffs from Canada, Mexico, the EU, and China. Today we released an interactive map – available at www.TheWrongApproach.com – and state-level fact sheets that detail the total value of exports subject to tariffs as well as the largest export items by destination (Click here for the Illinois One Pager).


Our goal is to use this data release, along with the fact that approximately $75 billion in retaliatory tariffs will be in effect by the end of this week, to draw more attention to the growing threat of the biggest trade war since Smoot Hawley.


How you can help: 


  • Share the map and this information with your members and through your social media channels.
  • We would love to partner with you on driving local media coverage. If you are willing to go on the record or help connect us with local media, please have your communications team reach out to Stacey Day at sday@uschamber.com or 202-463-5321. We have already gotten several requests from local media already this morning.

We will have additional information coming out after next week, including analysis of the impact of tariffs that have been imposed on imports by state.
