Why President Trump's Steel Tariffs Are Dangerous
Labor | Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Last week President Trump announced that he’ll impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum of 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively. Since the U.S. steel industry has suffered over the last few decades, this action might seem like a good idea — but is it? Here’s the reality. This action will punish American workers, invite retaliation — most likely against agricultural products from our Midwest — and harm U.S. exports.


Cooler Heads Must Prevail in NAFTA Negotiations
World | Saturday, February 17, 2018

The Council on Foreign Relations points out that as a result of The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) regional trade increased sharply over the treaty’s first two decades, “from roughly $290 billion in 1993 to more than $1.1 trillion in 2016. Cross-border investment has also surged, with U.S. foreign direct investment (FDI) stock in Mexico increasing in that period from $15 billion to more than $100 billion.”


Has Trump Evolved on Trade?
Politics | Friday, February 16, 2018

On the campaign trail and into the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has been a walking, talking billboard for protectionist nationalism. He promised 45 percent tariffs on imports from China, 35 percent levies on imports from Mexico, a requirement that U.S. oil and gas pipelines use only American steel, and the closure of “loopholes” in our Buy American laws to ensure that only U.S. goods and American workers are eligible for federal procurement projects.


Ten Essential Strategies for Achieving International Success
Strategies | Thursday, January 25, 2018

When exporting, importing, investing abroad or establishing strategic alliances with foreign producers, it’s critical to understand the hidden risks. If not, an unethical supplier can result in endless lawsuits and poor market opportunities can generate tremendous losses. On the other hand, correctly grasping foreign market wants, needs and abilities can lead to great success. To make your job easier, consider the following factors.


Trump on Trade: Here's What He Needs to Do in 2018
Trade & Finance | Wednesday, January 10, 2018

2017 was a lost year for U.S. trade policy. We took several steps backwards and none forward. The losses started in January with the U.S. withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement with 11 other nations that had been negotiated by the Obama administration, but not yet signed into law by Congress. Rather than suggest any improvements, the Trump administration abandoned the agreement entirely.


Limiting Immigration of Talented Workers Hurts Entrepreneurship
Economy | Wednesday, January 10, 2018

There’s no question that illegal immigrants tax our economy and deplete our government benefits, so they should be carefully vetted. We need to separate unskilled immigrants from those who come here legally on worker visas and possess the skills we need to grow our economy.


How U.S. Strategists Should View the People’s Republic of China
U.S. | Wednesday, January 10, 2018

With exquisitely poor timing, the Trump administration released its latest National Security Strategy targeting China while still demanding Beijing’s assistance against North Korea. Although the administration’s technique was maladroit, the document raised important questions about future U.S. policy toward the People’s Republic of China.


An Aluminum Lining in a Darkening U.S.-China Trade Cloud
Politics | Saturday, December 16, 2017

Late last month, the Trump administration “self-initiated” antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of imports of aluminum sheet from China. Reactions from media, social media, and the Chinese government seem to suggest these measures are especially provocative, pushing Washington and Beijing even closer to the brink of a trade war. read more...

Trump’s Trade Policy: New Deals or No Deals?
Trade & Finance | Sunday, November 12, 2017

President Trump sees himself as a masterful negotiator. He is very critical of past U.S. trade negotiators, and has suggested that his tough-minded business colleagues like Carl Icahn could do a better job.


How to Realistically Solve the North Korea Crisis
World | Sunday, November 12, 2017

Washington sees North Korea as a security challenge. Yet the North threatens America only because the United States intervened in the conflict between the two Koreas. The case for defending now populous and prosperous South Korea expired long ago.
