CAMAS, Wash., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher Investments, one of the world's largest independent, fee-only registered investment advisers, recently released a new infographic, How Does Trade Affect the US Economy? The infographic examines how international trade affects the US economy, businesses and individuals.
Because trade—a perennially popular topic with the media and investors—is an important global issue, the graphic breaks down a complex subject into easy-to-understand elements. On the infographic's release, Fisher Investments' Senior Vice President of Research Aaron Anderson said, "We believe more informed investors are better investors and US trade and its economic effects are often misunderstood. This infographic helps investors better understand this complex topic."
The infographic examines the components of global trade to help readers understand the breadth of trade activities. It also introduces readers to the concept of "total trade," a way of looking at both exports and imports as economic positives. With a section on trade's impacts on the US economy, businesses and individuals, the graphic shines a light on the pros and cons of international trade.
