In a special episode of Dollar and Sense, David Dollar provides an update on the current state of U.S.-China trade negotiations. He explains why the March 1 deadline to reach a trade deal has been pushed back, what a potential agreement could look like, and how an agreement—once one is made—could be enforced.
The next episode will feature a deep dive on how trade agreements are enforced with Wendy Cutler, vice president and managing director at the Asia Society Policy Institute.
