Preview

Government economic policy is said to determine the result of the interface of many factors. Trade policy is more responsive to noneconomic considerations owing to its international nature. It is important to realize that branches of United States government know fully well that other branches will push toward free trade—or more restrictive trade as the case maybe. This can make it risky for the individual corporation and for single industries to maintain general macro policy stability.

Keywords: interface; free trade; risk; macro policy; stability
