Today’s Episode

In this episode, I engage in a fascinating discussion with Tom Duesterberg, Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute, on evolving shifts in the global trading order and their implications for U.S. manufacturing interests. Bringing the combined perspective of an historian, a policy researcher and a policymaker, Dr. Duesterberg agrees that demographic shifts as well as changes in manufacturing production processes and the increasing size and complexity of global manufacturing supply chains are affecting both the economics and the politics of trade. The second part of the interview touched upon issues with specific countries, notably China, Japan, and India.
