The Biden Administration and Trade With Katherine Tai

Episode Summary

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.

Episode Notes

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.
