A New Look at the Current Account Deficit

With the Senate threatening to pass import tariff legislation if China does not allow the yuan to appreciate, the topic of the U.S.'s expanding current account deficit is hotter than ever. A recent article from American Enterprise Institute scholar John Makin, though, gives good analysis on why the current account deficit may not have the negative implications many politicians claim.
