U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai joins Aaron this week to talk about U.S. trade policy, economic competition with China, the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework, and more.
The United States faces the most challenging trade environment in decades. Amid a complex domestic political environment, a more aggressive China, and varied trade views among U.S. allies to U.S. allies, the Biden administration has championed a new approach. In this complicated and fraught environment, what exactly is the worker-centered trade policy? Can trade really be designed to benefit American workers and the middle class? Can it effectively counter an emboldened China? And will the newly created Indo-Pacific Economic Framework revitalize U.S. trade strategy in Asia?
Aaron sits down with the United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai to discuss the future of U.S. trade policy.
