Ex-Im Bank Critics Are Undermining Trump's Trade Strategy

(Forbes, Arlington, 3 March 2017) Loren Thompson of the centre-right Lexington Institute comments on "the dwindling band of Export-Import Bank critics who think America should be the only major trading nation without an export credit agency." He notes that while Ex-Im actually make a profit, most national ECAs actually do susidize national exporters, i.e. distort markets. An interesting view into the ideological battles currently underway in Washington.
