New Directions in International Trade Policy

International trade has traditionally been seen as an essential component of peaceful relations between nations and a source of increased prosperity, as well as a frequent cause of dispute. Trade policy in the United States has been in flux under the Trump administration. The president carried out his campaign promise to withdraw from the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership but backed away from his threat to impose trade restrictions on China for currency manipulation. Renegotiation of NAFTA began in the summer of 2017, and the United States may decide in early 2018 to withdraw from the agreement. The WTO suffered an unsuccessful Ministerial Conference in December. This one-day class will explore the Trump administration’s trade policy measures and their implications for the US economy and the world trade regime, including NAFTA and the WTO.
