Two CEOs Talk Manufacturing and Tariffs

Welcome to our first ever sponsored edition, where politics meets business!

In the spirit of The Flip Side, we wanted to provide two different perspectives at the same time on a given topic. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to sit down with the founders of retail companies Stuart & Lau and Wool & Prince.

We discussed the nuances of manufacturing overseas vs. in the US, and how the recent trade war with China is impacting their operations – a timely topic as President Trump is considering imposing a 5 percent tariff on all Mexican imports and US-China tensions continue to escalate.  

Without further ado, here’s a recap of our conversations.

Thanks so much for reading this special edition. If you know of any retail companies whose supply chain is operating at scale in the US, give us a shout — we’d love to talk to them!

In the meantime, PLEASE check out Stuart & Lau and Wool & Prince’s amazing products – the Cary briefcase and lightweight wool polos make great Father’s Day gifts! (< 2 weeks out – don’t say we didn’t warn you!)
