University of Maryland Week 2 International Trade Balance Discussion
Hi Maxkai – I’m sending this question to only you privately.
This is my Discussion Question for Week 2:US Balance of Trade
Using the readings for this week (Chapter 10, Economics Help-Exchange Rates & Economics Help- Factors Which Influence the Exchange Rate & the following website with 3 minute video https://www.investopedia.com/trading/factors-influ…) to:
1)Discuss why a stronger dollar could enlarge the U.S. balance of trade deficit and why a weaker dollar could affect the U.S. balance of trade deficit.
2)How do you think the current tariff wars will impact our balance of trade?
3)Impact our economy and which sectors? Describe the impact and support your position w/ facts.
Find a relevant article on the U.S. trade deficit (at least 15 paragraphs long) and include information on the article in your discussion post.
Maxkai – I think this would be a good article to use (let me know if you disagree):
To get full credit, you must adequately address the questions.
