The list really does not do hurt the US.

Look on almost any OJ carton in the supermarket in the OJ is partially from Brazil. US OJ will simply sub Brazilian OJ.

Steel and iron product can be simply stored indefinitely. A bank will loan against the storage at the value of the cost of production.

Borbon whiskey. Lol. It's not like Bourbon can come from Brussels. It's a unique luxury product. It's bourbon or its some other grain alcohol.

Exactly. I am willing to buy futures on bourbon.


Products like that are finding more and more buyers the world over, while production capacity is limited.

Your head is in the sand if you don't see how interconnected world commerce is. Just because you can get item A from somewhere else does not mean item A will not go up in price from all countries. And the industry that depends on item A will need to increase the price of all of its products where possible to make up for its losses or it will go out of business. Since it takes many years to create a successful business and only a couple years to destroy it, we will lose a lot of successful businesses, ones that get the job done efficiently and at a decent price. Their workers will lose their jobs and no longer buy American goods. Bringing back the steel industry in the US for example would take a long time, steel would cost a lot more money than it does now, and it is a tough physical environment many would rather avoid being in. But, hey, romanticizing the good old days might work for you.

OJ at US supermarkets has zero to do with OJ tariffs on OJ exported from the USA to EU.

The new tariff is for OJ from the USA which is imported into any of the 28 countries that are part of the European Union(EU). This would be Germany, France, Spain, UK(for now), Ireland, Greece, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Finland, Denmark etc

Many companies in the EU will stop buying OJ from the USA(due to price increases resulting from the new tariff) and they'll replace it from OJ coming from other countries. This means companies in the USA will have fewer orders for OJ and they could begin losing money and will lay off people in the USA because the company can no longer make payroll due to not selling enough product in order to stay afloat as a company. In addition, shipping companies from the USA will have fewer orders and could layoff their truck drivers and/or shipping staff.

Some of those EU companies might not switch back to USA OJ suppliers after the tariffs are removed because they are happy with the new OJ supplier from the other country.
