China's economic rise has entailed increasing repercussions of its development in the rest of the world, including Latin America and the Caribbean. No wonder there is so much attention and hope for smoothness in China's current economic rebalancing. After all, what happens in China does not stay in China.

There's No Economic Justification for Massive U.S. Military Presence Around the Globe

Foreign policy should reflect international realities, which change over time. The Republic of Korea was vulnerable to renewed North Korean aggression at the conclusion of the Korean War in 1953. Today, Seoul could do whatever was necessary to deter and defeat the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. There's no need for America to defend that which could be defended otherwise.

New Data Show U.S. Trade Deficit Doubled, More Jobs Lost Under Obama Trade Deal That Was Template for the TPP

Lori Wallach | Posted 05.04.2016 | Politics
Lori Wallach

The policy and political bottom line of today's grim trade data: Americans' election-year trade revolt is spot on and we need a new American trade policy. If any more evidence was needed, the actual outcomes of the pact that served as the TPP's blueprint makes the case in a depressingly stark way.

Dave Johnson | Posted 05.03.2016 | Business

The TPP negotiations took place in a secret process dominated by the giant multinational corporations, and the final agreement is waiting to be approved or rejected by Congress - probably during the "lame duck" session, because that is when members are least likely to be held accountable for their votes.

Trump Foreign Policy Like Others, Except for His Hyper-Nationalism

Daniel Williams | Posted 05.02.2016 | Politics

Lots of the criticism, from both Republicans and Democrats, focuses on the supposed incoherence of Trump's ideas, as if coherence has been a hallmark of American foreign policy for the past 20 years.

Are Fair Trade Policies 'Extreme?' Is Clinton Ready for Trump On Trade?

Dave Johnson | Posted 04.28.2016 | Business
Dave Johnson

This election will be at least partly, if not mostly, about trade. The consequences of decades of moving jobs out of the country are coming home to roost. People are fed up. This means Clinton needs to toughen up her trade policies -- and mean it.

Trump on Trade: Truth-less.

To those who tuned in to Donald J. Trump's speech on foreign policy to hear precisely how he would make America economically great again, you're in luck. Trump stated clearly and repeatedly how he would deal with China's "economic assault on American jobs and wealth."

Trade and jobs are at the center of Trump's appeal. He rightly says China is killing us on trade and wrongly says that immigrants are taking people's jobs, but people believe it and people listen.

Panama, Trade Agreement Promises & The TPP

Lori Wallach | Posted 04.19.2016 | Politics
Lori Wallach

With the presidential primary spotlighting a bipartisan trade revolt, defenders of our status quo trade policies are on the defensive. Their latest claim: the Panama Papers leak shows that the U.S. free trade agreement (FTA) with Panama fixed that nation's infamous tax haven conduct. An actual review of the data, however, shows that the FTA seems to have incentivized more tax haven activity in Panama, not less.
