Policy Perspectives of the Presidential Candidates: Trade

Sunday, October 30, 2016 15:50
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Presidential candidates throughout recent elections have made international trade a scapegoat for America’s problems, and 2016 is no exception. Instead of helping Americans understand trade and its importance, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have perpetuated myths and played up stereotypes. Trump would impose duties on imports from Mexico while Clinton now argues against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)—an agreement she helped craft as secretary of state. Only Gary Johnson seems to be in the free-trade camp. Which candidate is most likely to chart a new course for U.S. trade policy in their administration? Will the outcome of the election affect the TPP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or NAFTA? Will a third-party candidate like Gary Johnson influence the direction of the debate? Daniel J. Ikenson, director of the Herbert A. Stiefel Center for Trade Policy Studies, will join us to examine the candidates’ U.S. trade-policy positions, what their historical actions suggest, and what this means for the future of U.S. trade with the world.
