The scorecard infographic and accompanying progress report, «Trading Up: U.S. Trade and Investment Policy,» analyzes the overall health of the U.S. economy by focusing on shifts in global trade and foreign direct investment in the United States. This report was updated in April 2015 to reflect the latest data.
This scorecard is part of CFR’s Renewing America initiative, which generates innovative policy recommendations on revitalizing the U.S. economy and replenishing the sources of American power abroad. Scorecards provide analysis and infographics assessing policy developments and U.S. performance in such areas as infrastructure, education, international trade, and government deficits. The initiative is supported in part by a generous grant from the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Foundation. Previous reports and scorecards have evaluated federal regulation policy, federal worker-retraining policy, U.S. debt, transportation infrastructure, federal education policy, trade, and corporate tax.
