Why We Launched TradeVistas

TradeVistas seeks to engage readers in ways that relate trade to our own lives and communities.

Advances in technology and transportation have made it easier than ever for us to exchange products, services, and ideas with anyone anywhere in the world. But as familiar as it is in our daily lives, few issues are as heated – or as fraught with conflicting information – as the current debate over trade. And it’s not a national conversation, it’s a global conversation.

Our primary goal with this site is not to advocate for or against any particular trade policy, but to provide a fact-based context in which to understand this broader debate. We also hope that the ideas we share and generate with your help will spark policy innovation in the ever evolving landscape of trade policy.

Our Partners

Hinrich Foundation

The Hinrich Foundation focuses on promoting a sustainable global trade system. The foundation believes trade is a primary driver of economic development, delivering higher standards of living to the citizens of all countries that participate in the trade system in a responsible and sustainable manner. The foundation believes that open and fair trade promotes peace between countries, while protectionism and predatory practices build walls and exacerbate divisiveness.

We conduct research and analysis, and provide commentary on global trade issues. We aim to contribute constructively to the public debate on trade in the hope that it will lead to better and more informed decision-making on the part of government, business and civil society.
