 Safe Haven | The Trade Deficit End-Game
One of my deepest concerns is that the current complacency with the trade deficit which stems from the relative stability of the US economy and markets will lead to an event as dramatic as the fall of the NASDAQ.
The nominal U.S. trade deficit widened to $58.3 billion in January from December's downward revised $55.7 billion deficit.
The trade deficit with China widened by $1 billion to $15.2 billion, in part possibly due to a jump in apparel imports following the expiration of quotas.

 Safe Haven | Trade Deficit - Be Careful What You Wish For
When a slight narrowing of the trade deficit was released last month, the U.S. dollar received short-term relief (the turmoil with the European constitution also helped the dollar short-term).
While many of us are fixated with a trade deficit that few economists believe is sustainable, a lower trade deficit is not automatically good news.
The balance of trade is affected by economic activity domestically and abroad.

 ecoglobe - SAFE TRADE: GREENPEACE CALL TO STOP "WTO RISKY PRACTICE" 07NOV99
According to Greenpeace, it is important that before further negotiations liberalize the markets for even broader areas, "Safe Trade" rules be implemented, and that the WTO must also recognize the role of the United Nations in areas where important environmental issues are heavily at stake.
The "Safe Trade" report details a number of examples whereby the WTO failed to take proper consideration of health and environmental concerns and to shift the burden of proof in favour of the environment, such as the WTO ruling against the EU ban on imports of US beef from growth hormone fed cattle.
This was particularly evident when major GMO trading nations (the US, Canada, Australia, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay) pressured to prevent the adoption of a Biosafety Protocol to the Convention on Biological Diversity to regulate the use of GMOs in food and agriculture.

 Safe Haven | Trade Deficits, Budget Deficits, and the Dollar affect Oil and Gold
The visual impression is that the budget deficit has a closer relationship with the value of the dollar than the trade deficit.
That is not always the case, but now the US has the unique position where the trade deficit effect has been muted by foreigners reinvesting their trade surpluses in the US, buying our Treasuries.
Because foreigners used the dollars they obtained in trading with us to buy our government deficit, the effect of the trade deficit on the value of the dollar has been much smaller than it could have been.

 No Portfolio Is Safe from Trade Winds
Truth be told, the monthly announcement of America's foreign trade deficit usually has little immediate impact on the stock and bond markets, in part because it is released six or seven weeks after a given month's end.
The trade deficit, which is simply the difference between exports and imports, tallies all goods and services traded between the U.S. and the rest of the world.
The monthly trade data are collected for almost all countries by the Commerce Dept.'s Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

The fact that the effects of tasers can vary according to a number of factors, raises serious concerns about the safety of these devices and about the ability of the user to ensure that they apply only the minimum amount of force necessary.
Critics, however, have cast doubt on their safety and questioned the use of some devices which are so easy to misuse that they can encourage torture or ill-treatment.
Despite the claims of companies promoting such devices as a new generation of ''safe'' alternatives, there has been very little independent research into the effects these sorts of weapons can have in real-life situations.

On the other hand, facilitation of trade is equally important to economic security.
So what we are seeing is an evolution of the ideas of "free trade" and "fair trade" to embrace the concept of "safe trade" - that is to say, that protective measures are used to the extent justified by legitimate concerns, but not as unjustified barriers to trade."
Among the most important ones adopted so far are principles of plant quarantine as related to international trade, guidelines for pest risk analysis, a glossary of phytosanitary terms, requirements for the establishment of pest free areas, and a code of conduct for the import and release of biological control agents.

Some environmentalists say U.S. exporters should be penalised as they will have an unfair competitive advantage over companies in places like Europe and Japan which will be forced to cut their emissions under the Kyoto pact.
