The economic engine that created unprecedented levels of wealth and prosperity in the United States is being challenged as never before as as companies, both large and small, are confronting nontraditional trade finance policies in emerging economies around the world. How the United States addresses the emergence of state-driven capitalism will have profound consequences for American businesses and competitiveness for years to come.
