The U.S.--China Trade Deficit

Author

  • Myeong Hwan Kim

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to examine the trade imbalance between the United States and China, and how it affects the United States' trade deficit. Contrary to our expectation, the United States' imports from China have no significant effect (actually a negative effect) on the United States' trade deficit.
