The current trade climate within the U.S. and its volatility has had businesses globally on edge due to the ripple effect that it can create. This has formed an environment in which trade disputes are causing volatile markets as trade deals are being re-examined in order to find a balance of supporting domestic production while still outsourcing to other countries in fields which they hold a comparative advantage. Examining the economic implications of these policies can help better understand what strategies need to be enacted in order to keep businesses afloat through turbulent waters
