Here are slides on U.S. "trade" as well as on employment, unemployment and jobs in the U.S. and Colorado. Trade deficit trends are unsustainable and "trade" policy has undermined and is continuing to undermine the U.S. economy.
I prepared these slides to show how important it is that the U.S. should have a populist president. John Edwards has been called a populist. I showed them at the John Edwards house party in Colorado Springs on 3/28/07 (*). Updated 8/28/07.
