Wednesday, 14 March 2018
Benson Hersch, CEO of the Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL), comments today on the Spring Statement: “There is light at the end of the tunnel…is it an approaching train called inflation?

The action would be conducted under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, in line with recommendations from the Department of Commerce (headed by Secretary Wilbur Ross) that such imports “threaten to impair national security.” Originally pertaining to all countries, the Administration later made exemptions for goods imported from Canada and Mexico, and left the door open for other concessions going forward.
