    Tariff increase for glasses from China...

    Got this list from a link to Barron's from The Washington Post:

    Which Products Will See the 10% Bump?

    2018 import values of selected products subject to new tariffs, in million of dollars



    Product Total imports China imports Relaince on China
    Pneumatic mattresses and other inflatable articles of plastics 523 503 96%
    Porcelain or china ceramic sinks, washbasins, baths, bidets, water closet bowls, urinals & similar sanitary fixtures 658 502 76%
    Sound recording and reproducing apparatus using magnetic tape, optical media, or semiconductor media 591 500 85%
    Spectacles, goggles and the like, corrective, protective or other, other than sunglasses 836 472 56%
    Single loudspeakers mounted in their enclosures 688 468 68%
    Containers (including containers for transport of fluids) specially designed and equipped for carriage by one or more modes of transport 628 463 74%
    Women's or girls' knitted or crocheted swimwear of synthetic fibers 900 457 51%
    Portable electric lamps designed to function by their own source of energy, other than flashlights 490 457 93%
    Aluminum, cooking and kitchen ware (other than cast), enameled or glazed or containing nonstick interior finishes 740 456 62%
    Electromechanical domestic appliances, with self-contained electric motor

    Thanks for the post Jerry as someone who is living it from our field.

    I know Trump may be clumsy in his ways but I did read in the Washington Post how our trade agreements and sharing intellectual property are lopsidedly exploited to China's benefit and targeted tariffs can help change that.

    Do you see more than that from the eye wear end of things?

    I assume we can talk about any anticipated frame price increases in percentage terms- correct?

    Of course, but you know how slippery this slope is.
