Stu and Andrew sit down with AEI trade experts Claude Barfield and Matt Jension to discuss industrial production chains. Okay, so Stu was a little skeptical on this one.

They give us a fascinating overview on the multifaceted dimensions of international trade, trade theory, policies that are constructive and destructive to it, and some issues the US faces going forward.
