Trade restrictions are a common theme on campaign trails, and the general public is often suspicious of the net benefits of trade. Are these suspicions warranted? This week on EconoFact Chats, Michael Klein and Kadee Russ of the University of California at Davis discuss the current landscape of international trade, its winners and losers, and trade policies. Kadee served as the senior economist for international trade and finance on the Council of Economic Advisers from 2015 to 2016.
