head trauma

A worker produces desks for export to the US, France, Germany and other countries, at a factory in Nantong in China's eastern Jiangsu province. The latest round of US levies on Chinese imports began on Sunday with a 15 percent tariff on a total of $112 billion of goods. As fresh US tariffs on Chinese imports kick in, Illinois-based phone accessories manufacturer Ben Buttolph has been urgently moving production to other Asian countries despite the cost, inconvenience and deep uncertainty. Buttolph, chief finance officer at Xentris Wireless, expects that his company will never return to China after completing a move that he graphically describes as "a kind of business 'head trauma'."
