Bill Removes Obstacle to Trade Pacts (Washington Times)
February 20, 2009
The Washington Times quotes CGD senior fellow Kim Elliott on the trade implications of the stimlus package.
From the article:
"It's an unfortunate signal mainly," said Kimberly Elliott, a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development, though she said that while the measure is protectionist, "the U.S. is by no means the worst player on this."
"In terms of job creation, if in fact it does set off a spiral of others pushing their policies further, and then cutting off our exports, then it doesn't gain anything on the job front anyway," she said."
