JHI on the Issues 2016:  Does the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Make America Less Competitive?

Donald Trump has made anti-trade rhetoric a centerpiece of his campaign.  Trump seems to view trade as a zero-sum game where the U.S. always loses and ignores the evidence that trade makes Americans richer, including middle class Americans.  Trump also ignores the evidence that TPP will give the U.S. a strategic upper hand in Asia, allowing us to push back against unfair trade practices by the Chinese.
