In this era of growing scepticism about the benefits of globalisation, with the election of Donald Trump in the USA and with Brexit shaking up the European Union, are we heading for a new paradigm in which long-term expansion in international trade is no longer a political priority? Or will the imperatives of economic growth inevitably re-assert themselves once the initial shocks have been absorbed?
In this first episode, we take a look at global trade policy from the perspective of the United States.
This is the first of a two-part series on international trade policy. In part two we’ll return to look at policy in Europe and the EU.
