支撑100%香槟税

Late yesterday, the US Trade Representative unsheathed a champagne saber. But it wasn’t for sabering champagne in celebration; rather, it was for dealing it a blow by threatening tariffs of 100%. French sparkling wine (not still wine) as well as cheese, handbags, makeup and enamelware would be affected. (See the whole list这里。)

While that would be very bad news for consumers as well as producers, there is some cause for guarded optimism. This was, after all, saber rattling, not actually putting the tariffs into effect. The核心问题这是法国强加在大型技术公司,大多是美国人,在法国开展业务的“数字税”。如果昨天公布的关税宣布,法国威胁要报复(不是10月份的人!-do试着跟上)被施加,所以也许它只是一个讨价还价的位置?有特朗普与LVMH创始人Bernard Arnault的关系,在德克萨斯最近展出,这可能已经发挥了一部分,为什么香槟,手提包和干邑不是在第一轮关税。

但是,当然,悲观主义也是如此:这是自称为“关税人”,其与Macron的关系恶化。这些天贸易有很多不确定性。进口商可以规划最坏的情况,并尽快携带脱船(或普朗加入),因为它们可以在潜在关税的电线下躲避。可悲的是,如果颁布,这对Crémant葡萄酒的类别致命,来自香槟之外的法国的闪闪发光的葡萄酒。虽然其中许多是非常好的葡萄酒,但他们的主要卖点是价值,关税将消失。

Napoleon supposedly said about champagne that in victory you deserve it while in defeat you need it. An important corollary to that all-purpose reason for popping bubbly next year might be “providing you can afford it.”

在华盛顿特区1月7日的香槟税安排了听证会。
