Last quote by Chad Bown

There is a legal question of how much of the parts and components and value-added needs to actually happen in the U.S. for tariffs to no longer apply. You can't just fly an airplane to Alabama and say it's made in America.feedback

Chad Bown quotes

Jun 22 2017 - China

You could imagine extending this argument to almost anything, and I think that's one of the difficulties with employing it at all. Once you open that Pandora's box, it's really an argument you can apply almost limitlessly.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Trump Presidency

Once we go down this path, it creates the opportunity for anybody to do the same thing.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Mexico

He starts off by thinking about any negotiation as zero sum. If he's the big player, the bully, he's going to get a better deal by negotiating with one other country.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - NAFTA

It's unclear if you need Congress. Part of the issue is we've never done something like this before; we've not gone through the legal i's that need to be dotted and t's that need to be crossed. The White House is supposed to consult with Congress [about free trade accords] at a minimum, but what does that mean? That's up for interpretation. You could tell trading partners that you may withdraw in six months, but in the end you choose not to withdraw, so it's not actual commitment.feedback

Unlike earlier presidents, Trump is signaling a willingness to impose import restrictions -- especially against a country like China -- where the justification under WTO rules for doing so may be highly questionable. The downside of the United States going down this path is that it is likely that other countries will follow suit immediately.feedback

Jan 31 2017

I'm incredibly concerned that the Trump people mean what they say. One would hope that they are using this as a negotiating tactic. But even if you are, that's an extraordinarily dangerous game to play, because, right now, the communication to the world is not flowing clearly.feedback

Nov 22 2016 - Trans Pacific Partnership

If U.S. workers are more expensive than Mexican workers, the only way to level the playing field is to do things that raise costs in Mexico.feedback
