Public Policy Center Newsletter - August 2018

The US–China trade war. Ongoing NAFTA renegotiations. A shaky tariff truce with Europe. Our latest resources examine the implications of these whipsaw developments out of Washington—and lay out the needed solutions for ensuring fair, competitive trade policy over the long term.

CED’s Trade Under Attack details the immense contribution global trade makes to the US economy and warns that America risks forfeiting its leadership position if it retreats from open markets. The report includes recommendations for aiding workers adversely impacted by trade.

Additionally, The Conference Board China Center recently released an analysis showing that non-Chinese companies make up 43% of China's exports. As a result, some proposed U.S. tariffs would not only hit Chinese companies, but also foreign-invested companies exporting from China—many of which are American.

Trade politics—and trade wars—can be a tangle of unlikely winners, losers, and alliances. Keep an eye on these newsletters for more measured, data-driven, and non-partisan analysis in the months ahead.
