A dreaded ending to the tariff exemption process
07/19/2018 6:03pm

Todd Adams is vice president of Stainless Imports Inc., a small family-owned stainless steel manufacturer based in Florida. We had Adams on the show in early May . His company had applied for an exemption from tariffs on a specific product; the company had "combed the earth" to find a mill that could produce it and found one in China.

Today, 20.9 million of the 36.7 million people with AIDS receive treatment, according to UNAIDS , most of them living in the poor countries where the disease is most prevalent. In the view of the public health community, reducing the prices on AIDS drugs and setting up the infrastructure to distribute them to people in poor countries in less than two decades is seen as phenomenal and unprecedented.
