I’m pleased to report that Bloomberg.com has just come out with a post featuring my findings that, despite endless doomsaying claims in the Mainstream Media, there’s absolutely no evidence showing that President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs are already devastating America’s metals-using industries. Author Peter Coy focuses on my research on employment in these sectors, but I hope his piece will stimulate more coverage of tariffs-related reporting that’s just as wildly off-base when it comes to other economic indicators.
In addition, last Friday, Brendan Kirby of Lifezette.com quoted my views in his post on that morning’s monthly U.S. jobs figures and what they reveal about the future. Brendan also spotlighted my work showing outsized job-creation in metals-using industries.
