Title: Have you noticed price jumps on imported goods in your day to day spending?
Post by: sfpf on August 14, 2019, 07:23:19 PM
With all the crazy stuff going on with tariffs and such, I'm curious if you've noticed price jumps on things you typically buy or are looking to buy. I haven't noticed anything significant yet in my day to day spending, but wouldn't be surprised if things start getting more expensive since so much is imported these days. How about you? Anything you're trying to stock up on now?

Hi,


I think taxes will eat the money when we buy the products in the market?.

This was very much a thought of mine when I started hearing about the tariffs a couple of years ago. I've honestly not seen any change. For that matter, I've actually seen the price of goods go down, but I obviously know that has nothing to do with the tariffs. The goods I'm talking about are computers, certain electronics, etc. I've not done my research, but I think these things are exempt from the current tariffs.

I'm very much not a fan of what China has been doing. I'm not a fan of their culture either, especially the way they act here in the US when they visit. I'm going to hold back... I had written a lot, but there's a reason why most of the rest of Asia do not like them.
