What has been the impact of trade with China on employment in the U.S.economy.
I’m studying and need help with a Blog Post question to help me learn.
Instructions: you will write blog posts of approximately 1000-1200 words, one by each of the due dates listed below, on questions chosen from the following lists.
Sources: Your blog posts must refer to (and properly cite) readings from the syllabus and Blackboard as well as other articles or opinions you find (the balance between these will depend on the questions you choose). You can also find other analyses and opinions on the internet; the Web Links section on Blackboard will take you to organizations and research institutions that may publish relevant articles or studies. Part of this assignment is to show that you have read, understood, and evaluated various readings for the questions you choose. See additional suggestions and a more detailed grading rubric below.
Note: “Topic” here means topic on the syllabus; “Question” means the subject of your blog!

- What has been the impact of trade with China on employment in the U.S.economy—either in the manufacturing sector or more broadly? How widespread is this impact—is it highly localized, or has it affected broad regions and sectors of the U.S. economy? For this topic, you should focus on the assigned readings (on Blackboard/Content/Topics 3-5) by Autor, Dorn, and Hanson (2016) and Scott (2017), as well as any other analyses or critiques that you find. As best as you can understand them, try to explain and critically evaluate the methodologies the authors use to identify this impact, and evaluate which estimates you think are more reliable and why. You may also wish to comment on why trade with China has been estimated to have such large effects since around 2001.
