WHAT YOU’LL FIND ON THE SITE
We’ve got you covered on the Trending topics from China to the new United States-Mexico-Canada free trade agreement (the “new” NAFTA) to Brexit. But there’s a foundation to everything in the news. In our Essentials section, you’ll find short takes on the fundamentals of global trade rules, trade agreements, and negotiations. Explore our Timelines and Interactives page for useful summaries and insights on trending issues. The Data Stories section is carefully curated to provide you the best, easiest-to-use resources to find the trade data you’re looking for.
Everyday Trade is a collection of stories offering a glimpse into the paths of the ordinary everyday things we use and how they came into our lives through trade. Dive into the Technology page to read about trade and jobs, manufacturing, digital commerce, and how we protect innovative ideas through trade policies.
TradeVistas breaks down the need-to-know aspects of more complicated areas of trade policies in “Unfair” Trade, from the laws behind the tariff wars, to unfair industrial subsidies, illicit trade and sanctions, and the ways countries and companies resolve trade disputes. We’ve got expert writers but we ensure they explain it plainly.
Educators use TradeVistas content as assigned reading, for in-class discussion and case studies, and as part of online discussion groups.
Here’s what you won’t find: We do not advocate for or against any particular trade policy. We are non-partisan. We want to be your trusted resource for fact-based context so you can make your own, informed conclusions. Thanks for stopping by – subscribe to our free newsletter and reach out with feedback.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of Scott Miller, who gave us a platform to incubate and grow TradeVistas while serving as the Scholl Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which was our home from September 2016-2018 before launching as a fully independent publication.
