Imports, Jobs, and the Economy

At a time of high unemployment and political strife, trade is under fire. Imports in particular are criticized as harming the economy and, especially, costing jobs. These criticisms are misguided. Imports not only provide competition that benefits consumers and drives our economy forward, they support millions of American jobs from port handling to after-market service. Join us as we try to put U.S. trade policy on the right path.
