Our Massive Trade Deficits Are Killing the U.S. Economy

The United States’ trade deficit is a big problem. This is an ongoing issue with no end in sight as the disastrous so-called “solutions” our politicians propose are actually the main problem.

Not only has “free trade” led to the largest transfer of wealth in the history of the world, but trillions of American dollars have been lost due to the removal of tariffs, resulting in trade deficits. Additionally, “free trade” agreements are nearly impossible to enforce because they assume that every participating country will play by the same rules. This is seldom the case.
