Abstract

Though the U.S. economy is generally open with respect to international trade in services, there are some notable exceptions as well as some more subtle problems. This essay provides a brief primer on trade in services, examines recent world and U.S. data, and highlights the major trade barriers, the opportunities, and the policy dangers that lurk in the current political climate.

Keywords: trade in services, barriers, regulation, GATS
