New Podcast Episode: The Phase One Trade Deal
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
Our latest episode features AAF’s Director of Trade and Immigration Policy Jacqueline Varas discussing the details and likely impacts of the Phase One trade deal with China. The trade agreement aims to reform unfair Chinese trade practices such as forced technology transfer and intellectual property theft, yet the agreement’s unconventional dispute mechanisms potentially limit its effectiveness, Varas argues.
Read Varas’ recent insight that provides a section-by-section analysis of the Phase One deal.
Future episodes will address other timely policy questions, including:
