How Does Growing U.S.-China Trade Affect Rural America?

Fred Gale

Rural America/ Rural Development Perspectives, 2002, vol. 17, issue 4

Abstract: China’s trade with the United States has boomed since the 1980s. China exports a number of products such as apparel, furniture, and plastics that compete with products manufactured in rural America. However, many of China’s most important exports, like footwear and toys, are not widely produced in rural America. China’s exports of products like footwear and toys benefit rural U.S. consumers by keeping prices low. China’s growing economy is creating market opportunities for rural U.S. producers of oilseeds, grain, meat, machinery, and equipment.
