Trade and the 2016 Presidential Race (Podcast)


Trade is becoming a key issue in the 2016 presidential race, and both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are espousing the most anti-trade protectionist policies heard since the 1930s. And while Democrats have historically been more skeptical of free trade, the current Republican anti-trade sentiment is unique. So what’s the truth about trade and trade deficits, and what happens when governments cut off your ability to freely trade with people from other countries? IPI’s Tom Giovanetti and Dr. Merrill Matthews discuss in this installment of the Policy Wonks podcast. (Click here to view in iTunes).
