Biden’s Global Trade Updates — Taxes, Sanctions, Human Rights and Technology.

The following items are those I listed on my website  concerning President Biden’s recent trade actions. For the first 100 Days they amount to more than mere recalibration of Trump’s trade and tariff policies but not a grand reversal of those policies.

They posit starting a newer path in addressing systemic issues in the global system and the U.S. interface with the international system.

A bit more tougher on China, a bit slower in removing Trump’s Section 232 and Section 301 tariffs, good international tax proposals, more multilateral engagement, not much yet on the WTO, not much movement in joining newer regional arrangements, but more emphasis on human rights (and use of trade sanctions). Major focus on increasing U.S. competition with China (not confrontation) and developing policies to better engage in the global economy.
