The United States faces the most challenging trade environment in decades. Amid a complex domestic political environment, a more aggressive China, and varied trade views among U.S. allies to U.S. allies, the Biden administration has championed a new approach. In this complicated and fraught environment, what exactly is the worker-centered trade policy? Can trade really be designed to benefit American workers and the middle class? Can it effectively counter an emboldened China? And will the newly created Indo-Pacific Economic Framework revitalize U.S. trade strategy in Asia?Aaron sits down with the United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai to discuss the future of U.S. trade policy.

The global trade recovery stutters

Kia ora,Welcome to Thursday's Economy Watch where we follow the economic events and trends that affect Aotearoa/New Zealand.I'm David Chaston and this is the International edition from Interest.co.nz.Today we lead with news global trade is losing altitude, with the geopolitical pressures starting to take their toll.But first, US mortgage applications fell yet again last week, continuing the long string of declines and are -23% lower than year-ago levels. Mortgage interest rates rose to 5.94% in this survey.The US reported its July trade balance data earlier today which showed a smaller overall deficit by -US$10 bln to a 9-month low of -US$71 bln, broadly in line with market forecasts. Total exports were up a mere +0.2% to a new all-time high of US$259 bln as a rise in exports of services offset a decline in goods shipments. Meanwhile, imports went down by -2.9% to US$330 bln as a decline in imports of consumer goods and industrial supplies offset a rise in shipments of cars. Given their moderately expanding economy, its a good result. That takes their trade deficit to just under 4% of GDP for the first time in a very long time.The US Fed's Beige Book summaries of regional surveys painted a modest picture of their economic expansion in August. Economic activity was unchanged since July, with five Districts reporting slight to modest growth in activity and five others reporting slight to modest softening. Most Districts reported steady consumer spending as households continued to trade down and to shift spending away from discretionary goods and toward food and other essential items. Car sales remained lackluster across the country, reflecting limited inventories and elevated prices. It is not a very upbeat assessment.The US may be transitioning to a period of lower growth, but the Fed signaled it will stay targeting inflation until the effort is successful, no matter what the economy does. A top official said they will need to see “several months” of low monthly inflation data to be convinced that rapid price growth is finally cooling, raising the odds that they will again raise interest rates by +75 bps when they meet later this month.The Bank of Canada raised its policy by +75 bps to 3.25% overnight in a well signaled change. It is the fifth consecutive rate hike, pushing borrowing costs to the highest since 2008. They also said this rate will need to rise further given the outlook for inflation. In addition they will continue their quantitative tightening by selling off their bond holdings. The widely-watched local PMI series reported a sharp expansion in August, after the unexpected drop in July, so there is still strong growth pressure in their economy.China released its August export data late yesterday and they were weak, even weaker than expected. Their import data was weak as well. Their trade surplus dipped and that was even after their trade surplus with the US rose in August from July.China's FX reserves fell more than expected in August, taking them down to US$3.05 tln and a drop of -US$50 bln and to their lowest level since October 2018.Taiwanese exports struggled in August, but by the political and military squeeze put on them from China. Although they remain at an historically high level, the growth impetus disappeared in the latest month.Global air cargo markets faltered in July, interrupting the expansion track they had been on. The Asia/Pacific region reported almost a -10% reduction year-on-year.In Australia, economic activity rose in Q2-2022 by about what was expected to be +3.6% more (real) than a year ago. In Q1-2022 the growth rate was +3.3%. Consumer spending was the bright spot in the June quarter. Exports also performed well, however, elsewhere conditions were pretty mixed. These Aussie results are far better than what most countries are reporting for the June quarter.The UST 10yr yield starts today at 3.27% and retracing -6 bps after deciding some of the earlier rise was overdone. The price of gold will open today at US$1717/oz and up +US$15 from this time yesterday.And oil prices start today -US$4.50 lower at just over US$82/bbl in the US while the international Brent price is now just over US$88/bbl. At these levels they are back to price levels in effect at the beginning of 2022 - and in fact prices pre-pandemic. The weak Chinese trade data undermines these prices today.The Kiwi dollar will open today just over 60.6 USc and little-changed since this time yesterday. Against the Australian dollar we are unchanged at 89.7 AUc. Against the euro we are a bit softer at 60.7 euro cents. (Notice the parity with the greenback.) That all means our TWI-5 starts today at 70.4 and unchanged since this time yesterday.The bitcoin price is now at US$$19,001 and a tiny -0.6% lower than this time yesterday. It got down to US$18,559 in between. Volatility over the past 24 hours has been modest at just on +/- 1.5%.You can find links to the articles mentioned today in our show notes.And get more news affecting the economy in New Zealand from interest.co.nz.Kia ora.

Of the $5 billion of U.S. beef exported around the world through May of this year, only $8 million has been to Africa. But Africa is a very promising destination for beef variety meats, a low-cost protein that helps meet Africa's nutritional needs. There is also growing interest in higher-end beef cuts that draw interest from Africa's growing middle class.Matt Copeland, U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) representative in Africa, says that a growing population, an expanding need for affordable protein, an explosion in western-style retail outlets and some softening in regulatory barriers signal the region is a potential growth market for U.S. red meat. In this episode Copeland explains how USMEF, with support from USDA and the Beef Checkoff Program, is laying the groundwork with importers, retailers and suppliers to expand U.S. red meat sales in the region.You can read more of our coverage of global meat trade in the pages of Feedstuffs; you can find the July issue now by visiting Feedstuffs.com and clicking on “Digital Editions.”This episode is sponsored by United Animal Health, a leader in animal health and nutrition.

Many poor countries sign trade agreements with the desperate hope of attracting investment from their wealthy counterparts. However, these agreements, or treaties, tend to have some very problematic clauses, which often lead to trouble down the road. Investors have used these treaties to sue countries for any actions, such as changes in policy, that they perceive to be a threat to their projected profits. And they don't sue in the national courts either, but in a special parallel system that seems to always favour the foreign investors.  Countries have had to use billions in taxpayer money, to pay these investors, at the expense of their own development. Our guest on this episode of the podcast,  Luciana Ghiotto is a researcher at TNI on trade and Investment. Her Phd is in social sciences, and she has done a lot of research on these Free trade agreements.  She is a researcher in CONICET-Argentina, and Professor of International Political Economy at Universidad Nacional de San Martín (UNSAM). Ms Ghiotto is also a member of ATTAC Argentina and coordinator of the Assembly Argentina Better Without Free Trade Agreements. Image source: B.S. Halpern (T. Hengl; D. Groll) / Wikimedia Commons

For a while now, the mantra “trade not aid” has dictated how the overdeveloped countries of the Global North engage with their less wealthy counterparts. The logic being that trade is more dignified than aid, and leads to longer lasting change. However, to anyone who has been paying attention, the way global trade is set up may actually be one of the reasons these countries remain poor. The playing field is far from level, and there are multiple mechanisms that work in concert to ensure it remains that way. To try and understand how the global trade system works, and to find out what can be changed, we had a series of conversations with some experts.  In all these conversations, we aimed to understand how the current global trade system came to be, how it works, and how we can make it more equitable, just, and fair.  In this episode, we wanted to understand exactly what the WTO is, where did it come from in the first place, and why does it have the influence it has?   Our guest, Alexandra Strickner, studied economics in Vienna and is co-founder of ATTAC Austria. Alexandra has decades of experience working in Civil Society around issues of globalization,   EU trade policy and Economic alternatives.
