Council on Foreign Relations: Fair Trade or Free Trade
U.S. voters worry over whether globalization and free trade are a good deal. Most U.S. presidential candidates say they support free trade, though some candidates argue for caveats such as labor and environmental standards when making new trade deals. And a few candidates have called for greater protections for U.S. workers.
Jonathan Jacoby, associate director of international economic policy at the Center for American Progress and Robert Lane Greene, an international correspondent for the Economist, debate the shape of trade policy for the next U.S. administration and whether new trade deals should come with strings attached.
