The U.S. Chamber of Commerce released a state-by-state analysis of the impact on President Trump’s tariffs and the results are bad
everywhere in Georgia.
According to the Chamber (a one-pager is below), exports from Georgia to Canada, Mexico, the European Union and China worth worth $749,849,268 could be adversely impacted. The Chamber also says 1,283,800 jobs in Georgia are supported by global trade.
Georgia’s hardest-hit products are:
- Mowers for lawns, parks etc. ($35 million exported annually to Canada)
- Insecticides ($35 million exported annually to Canada)
- Prepared of preserved chicken meat or offal(!) ($32 million exported annually to Canada)
So, in short, the answer is: blame Canada!
