The structure of U.S. trade has undergone major changes in the post-World War II period. In this article we attempt to (1) document the major elements of that change, (2) suggest some hypotheses that may explain the change, and (3) draw some of the implications for economic policy. Of special interest in this latter regard is the apparent decline in productivity growth in U.S. agriculture and the declining support for agricultural research.
