PNC survey: Florida business leaders divided on tariffs
November 13, 2019 - Small and mid-size business leaders in Florida are divided on the impact of increased U.S. tariffs on goods from other countries, a new survey from The PNC Financial Services Group found. Nearly half of those surveyed, or 48, are in support of tariffs on goods from other countries, even if other countries retaliate with increased tariffs on U.S. goods and services, the survey said. That's up sharply from 24 percent in fall 2018. Thirty-two percent are against increased tariffs and 19 percent are uncertain. The vast majority of respondents, 88 percent, have made no changes to their business in response to tariffs, the survey said.
