I highly recommend The US Election Note: Trade Policy published by Chatham House. This is the second piece presented in a series of short analyses on the likely foreign policy implications of a Barack Obama or Mitt Romney presidency following the November 2012 elections. This note explores the possible ramifications of the upcoming elections on US international trade policy.
Each election note takes a major foreign policy issue, explains the background, the relative positions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, and the international implications of each. The election notes provide independent analysis not just of what the candidates say, but draw upon an understanding of their history in office, and their domestic and foreign policy teams to provide a deeper and more rounded assessment of their likely approach to major foreign policy issues.
