AAF Highlights the Benefits of Trade Agreements
The American Action Forum released new research examining the economic benefits generated by trade. The research details the value of trade agreements and breaks down how both imports and exports contribute to economic growth.
“Prominent politicians have described the trade deficit as evidence that trade weakens the U.S. economy. The actual evidence, however, disproves this rhetoric. Both imports and exports contribute to economic growth; one should not be valued over the other,” concludes Jacqueline Varas, AAF’s Data Analyst.
