American leadership of the global economy

As the world’s largest economy, America must continue to lead by engaging in trade and establishing global trading rules that enhance and protect American businesses, workers and consumers. The Trade Leadership Coalition (TLC) supports agreements, like NAFTA, that facilitate the profitable and mutually beneficial exchange of goods and services across international borders. Americans everywhere benefit from a global system, led by the United States, which brings down the price of consumer goods, increases manufacturing opportunities and grows the economy.
