President Trump outlined his plans for several key policies to foster prosperity and economic growth in the United States, which has aroused both interest and concern globally. Trump’s protectionist policies, such as the border tax and U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, may have significant implications for major powers including Japan. With uncertainty in the air, questions on Trump’s economic policies and its impact on U.S.-Japan relations linger. How will Trump’s policies affect trade and economics? Would Trump’s economic policies make America great again? How will it affect Japan’s economy? What will happen to the U.S.-Japan alliance? In this program, speakers examine Trump’s economic policies, and break down what these policies mean for the United States and Japan.
