INFOGRAPHIC: Trade Fuels U.S. Economy, Jobs and Businesses
Post by Freedom Partners
Trade is a key element of our economy and promotes the well-being and prosperity of Americans. It empowers individuals, companies and countries to exchange goods and services, opening new markets and providing consumers a wider range of affordable products.
Millions of American jobs and businesses — both large and small — are dependent on trade.
Trade, and the benefits it produces, is responsible for lifting millions of Americans out of poverty, improving the standard of living, and modernizing our economy.
Policies that restrict the ability of Americans to trade, including tariffs, put our economy at risk and jeopardize our economic futures.
For a thriving U.S. economy and more prosperous nation, our policymakers must look for solutions that embrace trade and the many benefits it provides.
