Current Accounts: The Hinrich Foundation Trade Podcast

The current account, in economics terminology, principally represents a nation’s imports and exports. The Hinrich Foundation’s Current Accounts podcast series brings our conversation on global trade policy forward. Our regular series is hosted by Research Fellow Stewart Paterson, with occasional special editions featuring our other partners. Delve into all aspects of trade, from the waning of globalization to the rise of protectionism, from US-China relations to the nexus between non-tariff barriers and horse breeding. Tune in to hear us chat on the latest thinking for policy makers, businesses, educators, and more.
