Does Trade Reduce Wages of U.S. Workers?

Does Trade Reduce Wages of U.S. Workers?

Date: April 1, 1994
Creator: Elwell, Craig K
Description: This report examines in some detail the hypothesis that trade is undermining the economic status of the American worker. Two questions are addressed: one, Has trade tended to reduce the average level of wages? and, two, Has trade increased the inequality of wages? The general conclusion reached is that poor wage performance is largely a problem of the domestic economy, that would have occurred with or without trade.
