Forty years of persistent U.S. trade deficits have de-industrialized our country, destroyed hundreds of millions of jobs, undercut our innovation capacity, and created trillions of dollars in foreign debt. Despite this dismal economic record, the federal government ignores the trade deficit and foreign trade cheating as it pursues more of the same trade treaties. Balanced trade over time is the goal of free trade and of fair trade. Balanced trade will re-industrialize our country, enable massive job creation, grow our wealth and effectively neutralize foreign mercantilism. CPA is committed to making Balanced Trade the top national trade goal for the United States.
