Reforming US Trade Policy for Shared Prosperity and the Planet

whitePaper | November 15, 2019

Trade was not such a controversial topic not so long ago. For most of the post-war era trade worked well for the US and for many other countries. A bipartisan consensus supported continuing trade liberalization as long as it was accompanied by full employment. However trade always had winners and losers as economies adjust to different costs of production among trading partners and over the last few decades the number of US workers losing from trade mounted and the losses spread across hard hit communities.

U.S. Trade in Services: Trends and Policy Issues

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Trade in “services” refers to a wide and growing range of economic activities. These activities include transport, tourism, financial services, use of intellectual property, telecommunications and information services, government services, maintenance, and other professional services from accounting to legal services. Compared to goods, the types and volume of services that can be traded are limited by factors such as the requirement for direct buyer-provider contact, and other unique characteristics such as the reusability of services (e.g., professional consulting) for which traditional value measures do not account. In addition to services as independent exports, manufactured and agricultural products incorporate and depend on services, such as research and development or shipping of intermediate or final goods. As services account for 71% of U.S. employment, U.S. trade in services, both services as exports and as inputs to other exported products, can have a broad impact across the U.S. economy.
