Great Decisions: Decoding U.S.-China Trade

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year. Participants will view a related dvd and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.

A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 7 through March 28, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

  March 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  Decoding U.S.-China Trade

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade.  These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s.  Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China.  What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices?  There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.
