"The President's International Trade Strategy"

featuring

Dr. Peter Cowhey

Dean of UCSD’s School of Global Policy & Strategy

U.S. Trade Policy seems to be lurching in a radical new direction. President Trump has imposed tariffs on goods not only from China but also from Mexico and traditional U.S. allies Canada and Europe. Critics caution that these moves and reciprocal actions by U.S. trading partners will lead to a trade war. Is the United States on the right course or are there other, better options for the country in this hyper-competitive global environment?
