Reaction: Will tire tariffs cost consumers? - President Obama is placing a 35 percent tax on tires made in China after labor unions complained that Chinese imports were forcing US workers out of their jobs. Whats your reaction to this news? - Will these tariffs help decrease unemployment rates, or will they merely hurt consumers? - Obamas tire announcement came as the administration is about to lean heavily on organized labor to back its health care overhaul proposal.

US tariffs on Chinese tire imports spark trade dispute The latest trade dispute between the United States and China — the worlds largest and third-largest economies — is brewing, after US President Barack Obama approved much higher duties on Chinese-made tires on Friday. Those cheaper imports have grown substantially over the last five years, and now account for about one of every five tires purchased in the US At the same time, production of American-made tires has declined and more than 5000 jobs have been lost. On Monday, China hit back, filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization and announcing an investigation into whether US chicken and automotive products are being dumped at unfairly low prices in China. Daniel Rosen of the Rhodium Group, an economic research firm, joins Daljit Dhaliwal to discuss the larger implications of the trade dispute with China.

Bill C‐32 and the Access Copyright Tariff: Double Trouble for Educators and Students Speaker: Professor Sam Trosow, jointly appointed in the Faculty of Law and Faculty of Information & Media Studies In June the federal government tabled its latest set of proposed amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act. Following a long consultation process, the bill is in some respects a reasonable compromise, and is widely recognized by educators and librarians as much better than its predecessor Bill C‐61. However, the bill is fundamentally flawed because of the predominance of its digital locks provisions. These provisions, based on the controversial US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), will override many of existing and proposed users rights. In a related development, Access Copyright has filed a proposed tariff for the post‐secondary education sector with the Copyright Board. This proposal includes not only a drastic increase in costs, which will be passed on to students; but some onerous new reporting requirements which will be burdensome and invasive for instructors. The digital locks provisions in the new Copyright bill together with the Access Copyright proposal spell double trouble for students and academic staff. Professor Trosow will discuss some of the key provisions of these measures and their implications for teaching, learning and research here at Western and elsewhere. This lecture was recorded Wednesday July 14, 2010 from 12:00 -- 1:20 pm in the North Campus Building, Room 293 at The University of Western Ontario.

Renewable Energy Payment Feed-in Tariff: Creating Jobs Renewable energy payments or feed-in tariffs create jobs by creating a market for renewable green energy. Homeowners and businesses can install renewable energy systems and then sign a contract with their local electricity utility to puchase all of the energy. The purcahse rate is usually four to seven times higher than the rate charged by the utility. This is a set rate on a long term contract of approximately 20 years. This allows the homeowner or business to determine the exact payback time for the e renewable energy system. This also helps create distrributed electricity generation which increases the resilience of the electricity grid. In German, this plan has created over 400000 jobs in the renewable energy industry, and is making Germany the fastest implementation of renewable energy in the world. This job creation system is now under consideration in Michigan, which currently has an over 12% unemployment rate. Presentation by Bianca Barth.

Green Growth: Are Feed-in Tariffs the Answer? President Barack Obama has touted a robust green energy sector as our best chance of jumpstarting the economy, putting Americans back to work, and securing our nation's standing in a post-carbon world. Yet the renewable energy industry has been among the hardest hit by the current downturn. How can America revive this vital sector, transforming it into an engine of economic growth? The Washington Monthly has found a promising answer in an unlikely place: Gainesville, Florida, which is in the midst of a solar-power boom, thanks to a bold incentive known as a feed-in tariff. Under this policy, the local power company is required to buy renewable energy from all producers, no matter how small, at rates tied to the cost of production. This means anyone with a cluster of solar cells on their roof can sell the power they produce at a profit. While Gainesville is the first to take the leap, other US cities and at least eleven US states are moving toward adopting the policy. There is also a bill for a nationwide feed-in tariff before Congress. The surge of interest stems from the dramatic results the policy has delivered in other countries, most notably Germany, where it has given rise to the worlds most vibrant green energy sector. In America, however, an aging electrical grid and fractured utility market could make feed-in tariffs problematic.

Tariffs Trade protection, through tariffs and other regulatory means, would not only build stability into our unstable economy, but it would bring vital revenue to our debtor government which is currently surviving on debt. Import tariffs would be a crucial means of leveling the playing field between producers in the United States and their state-sponsored foreign competition. As it currently stands, there is no reason to produce domestically as competing with foreign pricing is impossible.

ERC propose electricity tariff plan The Energy Regulatory Commission wants the Kenya Power and Lighting Company and bulk power consumers to swiftly adopt an off peak tariff. ERC Director General, Kaburu Mwirichia argues that such a tariff will even out demand for power as heavy-duty industries will shift their production to off peak hours. There are fears the country may resort to power rationing, should a decision on this proposal fail to be reached.
Feed in tariffs is surely an investment in creating clean energy Read this great resource A new tariff policy came into play that now allows home owners to generate their own electricity and help the utility companies who are struggling to keep up with the high electricity demand. Home owners get paid, less outages occur and because it is clean energy one helps to save the environment from the damaging effects of pollution and global warming.

Interim tariff hike to allow Eskom time to deal with funding The 34% interim electricity tariff increase submitted by Eskom would ensure that the power utility could guarantee the security of electricity supply, while it finalised its funding model by the end of September, CEO Jacob Maroga told public hearings held by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) on Monday. Maroga noted that when one moved from capital requirements of R11-billion to R104-billion in a five-year period, one needed to step back and reflect on how one would fund this. The utility had forecast a capital requirement of R87-billion for the 2009/10 financial year and R104-billion in the 2010/11 financial year. He said that the utility had managed to borrow close to its capital requirements for most years, but that from the 2008/9 financial year, the shortfall became significant.

US Imposes Tariff on Chinese Tires The United States is going ahead with a punitive tariff on imports of Chinese-made tires, flexing its trade muscle in exercising World Trade Organization rules. It appears to be aimed at saving US jobs. But the Chinese regime is not taking the news well. In what may be retaliation, Beijing said it would investigate whether chicken and auto parts from the US are being "dumped" on the Chinese market. But the pundits seem to agree that an all-out trade war between the US and China is unlikely. Beijing has requested a meeting at the WTO to officially protest the tire tariff, and this is being cited as a sign that the Chinese regime does not intend to escalate the trade conflict. Economists warn that any out-and-out trade war between China and the United States could severely delay global economic recovery.
