Description

Seemingly in order to demonstrate its concern with huge trade deficits, Congress passed the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988. While the object of the legislation is ostensibly to reduce trade deficits and enhance American competitiveness, the new statute actually responds to all sorts of pressure groups. This report examines the impact of the new trade law on a multitude of government agencies.
