Obama sets additional 35 percent duty on Chinese passenger and light truck tires during the first year; 30% for second year; 25% for third.
"The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act was a protectionist act signed by Herbert Hoover, which raised tariffs on 20,000 imported goods into the United States. Hoover signed the law into law on June 17, 1930. The act is thought to have been a major factor of causing the 1930's Great Depression, and thus Herbert Hoover was largely blamed for the crisis."
