Who the US Trades With
Posted at 3:15 p.m. on Feb. 13
David Yanofsky uses the latest trade data to create an interactive display of US trade data, showing levels of trade by region and those countries with which the US has a trade deficit or surplus.
“US businesses slowed their exchanges most with their country’s largest trading partners. Mexico, China, and Canada each saw trade slow by more than 8% from November… These three nations, along with Japan and Germany, are the US’s five largest trading partners, accounting for almost 40% of all US trade.”
“Showing the diversity of the US economy, America’s five largest trade surpluses came from countries on five different continents: Hong Kong, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, Australia, and Brazil.”
