October 12, 2018 12:00 PM

Hosted by Tomas Hult, this segment of the globalEDGE Business Beat is an opinion segment on the show titled “Trump subsidies are a Band-Aid for farmers, not a solution.” Tomas Hult is Professor and Byington Endowed Chair in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. Dr. Hult also published this piece as a an op-ed article in The Hill, with the same title, on September 24, 2018. The focus of the segment is on international trade, with a specific eye toward President Trump’s $12 billion in farm subsidies and what they may mean for the trading balance and issues with other countries and for the world. A unique side-point with everything that is going on around the world regarding trade – but important one - is that for the first time in seven years, we expect the global efficiency ratio for international trade to go down. In large part, tariffs and subsidies make the globe less efficient and more win-lose oriented.

Hosted by Tomas Hult, this segment of the globalEDGE Business Beat is a dialogue with Forrest Morgeson, Director of Research for the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Tomas Hult is Professor and Byington Endowed Chair in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) is the only national cross-industry measure of customer satisfaction in the United States. ACSI measures the satisfaction of U.S. household consumers with the quality of products and services offered by both foreign and domestic firms with significant share in U.S. markets. Forrest and Tomas dig a bit deeper than their recent op-ed in The Hill on “US heading toward an economy with unsatisfied customers — and voters” that was published on September 18, 2018, to better understand the data and implications for the US economy and coming elections.
