What’s happening with trade — and how does Iowa fit in?


There’s been a lot of talk of tariffs and trade in national and local headlines in the last week or so. The March 9 Business Record (Insider) tackles the very topic with Managing Editor Perry Beeman talking with Iowa Economic Development Authority Director Debi Durham. 

Here are some other articles that may deepen understanding of the topic:

— From the Cedar Rapids Gazette: How a trade war could hit Iowa.

— From CNN Money: Tariffs, Trump and trade wars: Here’s what it all means.

— From Iowa Public Radio: Steel, aluminum tariffs would bring deals for consumers, headaches for farm economy.

— Some analysis from the New York Times: Trump’s latest tariff strategy: Less trade war, and more let’s make a deal.
