Tijuana Trucks Rush to U.S. in Case Trump Makes Good on Threats - Bloomberg
The immediate concern is another limited shutdown that would really hit commercial traffic between the two countries. With billions of dollars at stake, companies aren’t taking chances. Many trucks are rumbling through Otay about one-third full. Manufacturing managers aren’t waiting for them to be completely loaded, pushing goods out as quickly as possible.

Why the Rust Belt economy will suffer in a trade war - Brookings
Exports contribute significantly to the U.S. economy, today representing 12.3 percent of U.S. GDP. And the Rust Belt is at the center of this export economy, generating 26 percent of export-derived GDP (Figure 1). As prior Brookings analysis shows, “Trump Country,” particularly the communities of the Rust Belt, has been more affected by trade-related dislocations but also relies more on exports for jobs than other parts of the country.

When the sixth round of talks ended on January 29th with only three chapters agreed, he griped: “We owe it to our citizens, who are operating in a state of uncertainty, to move much faster.” But given the changes he wants, any more speed risks a crash.

Trade Worries Led Wisconsin Mill Town to Trump. It’s Still Uneasy. - The New York Times
NEENAH, Wis. — In Winnebago County, they’ve seen the paper mills close, one by one.

While Kimberly-Clark, founded here in 1872, still employs several thousand people locally, abandoned mills dot smaller towns in the region. Paper production has moved to cheaper locales overseas with less stringent pollution rules. That has left a pall — and a sense of fear and insecurity — hanging over places like Neenah, even as factories in other industries are still humming.

For many, the villain is trade.

Under the plan, companies would not be able to deduct the cost of imports from their revenue, a move that today enables them to lower their overall tax burden. At the same time, exports and other foreign sales would be made tax free.

NAFTA 2.0 and the Art of the Deal - Global Trade Magazine
Is renegotiating NAFTA a good idea‭? ‬It depends what you are trying to accomplish.‭ ‬No agreement is perfect,‭ ‬and commerce has changed markedly since‭ ‬1994‭—‬for example,‭ ‬when NAFTA entered into force,‭ ‬there was no commercial use of the internet.‭ ‬Modernizing and updating the agreement is a worthwhile objective.‭ ‬Yet trade agreements are typically effect,‭ ‬not cause:‭ ‬nations make agreements because existing commercial relationships are important,‭ ‬not the other way around.‭ ‬Overall,‭ ‬NAFTA has helped to triple merchandise trade among the three economies in nominal terms,‭ ‬from‭ ‬$306‭ ‬billion in‭ ‬1993‭ ‬to just over‭ ‬$1‭ ‬trillion in‭ ‬2015.‭ ‬But it’s important to remember that Canada and Mexico were the United States‭’ ‬number‭ ‬1‭ ‬and number‭ ‬3‭ ‬trading partners respectively before NAFTA,‭ ‬and they hold the same rank today.

Part of the reason the Carrier case received so much coverage is that workers were able to complain to the media without fear of getting fired. The Batesville case is much more typical, as hundreds of American firms lay off workers and shift production abroad every year with hardly any attention in the national media.
