Mary Lovely was interviewed for the Bloomberg article "Things Are Not Going to Plan in Trump’s U.S. Trade Deficit Wars," and was a guest on Marketplace for the segment "Here’s how deficit-inducing tax cuts lead to trade deficits." "Trade policy has very little direct impact on the overall trade deficit in the longer run," Lovely told Bloomberg. A new NAFTA, for example, is unlikely to do much to change the trade deficit, despite the administration’s claims, she said. 09/06/18
