Oil and the Real U.S. Trade Deficit
Spencer England, Business Insider
The monthly trade data was reported this morning and you will see press reports about the nominal trade deficit. But I like to look at the real trade data as it gives a better feel for the economic impact of trade. The real trade deficit is improving and the balance in February was $44,148 million ( 2005 $) as compared to $48,294 million ( 2005 $) in December. . .
