“The United States supports Taiwan’s closer economic integration with its neighbors in East Asia, Southeast Asia and South Asia, as well as in the Pacific. Taiwan’s contribution to a network of cross-cutting linkages will strengthen the rules-based fabric of the region and ensure its free and open nature.” (From AIT)

The Other Side of the North Korean Threat: Looking Beyond Its Nuclear Weapons and ICBMs.
Center For Strategic & International Studies, March 19, 2018, 6 pages.
“U.S. diplomacy and strategy cannot afford to focus solely on nuclear weapons, particularly when North Korea has the option of developing biological weapons with the same lethality as nuclear weapons. The U.S. cannot afford to ignore the conventional threat that North Korea poses to South Korea—a threat that could inflict massive casualties on South Korean civilians as well as create a level of conventional war that could devastate the South Korean economy.” (From CSIS)

Perspectives on Taiwan: Insights from the 2017 Taiwan-U.S. Policy Program.
Center For Strategic & International Studies, March 12, 2018, 62 pages.
“The papers in this compendium were written by the 10 members of the 2017 CSIS Taiwan-U.S. Policy Program (TUPP) delegation. TUPP provides a much-needed opportunity for future leaders to gain a better understanding of Taiwan through first-hand exposure to its politics, culture, and history. Each participant was asked to reflect on his or her in-country experience and produce a short article analyzing a policy issue related to Taiwan. These papers are a testament to the powerful impact that follows first-hand exposure to Taiwan.” (From CSIS)
The Heritage Foundation, March 13, 2018, 7 pages.
“President Trump’s rapid acceptance of dictator Kim Jong-un’s surprising summit invitation is yet another stunning development in a whirlwind of diplomatic breakthroughs since the beginning of the year. Within a few short months, the Korean peninsula has shifted from a seemingly inevitable military clash to the cusp of a momentous first-ever meeting of U.S. and North Korean leaders. But the regime’s offer comes with heavy strings attached and merely reflects a willingness to return to square one of previous negotiations.” (From The Heritage Foundation)
Office of the United States Trade Representatives, March 1, 2018, 359 pages.
“The trade policy agenda rests on five major pillars: Supporting Our National Security; Strengthening the U.S. Economy; Negotiating Better Trade Deals; Aggressive Enforcement of U.S. Trade Laws; and Reforming the Multilateral Trading System.” (From the USTR)
8. Freund, Caroline.
Peterson Institute for International Economics, February 2018, 15 pages.
“From the mid-1990s until the financial crisis, global trade grew twice as fast as global income, far faster than in previous or subsequent periods. During this period of rapid trade growth, global current account imbalances also expanded rapidly. If excess savings in some countries financed more consumption and investment in other countries, then trade and trade imbalances would move together. Greater capital mobility thus may help to explain why trade surged in the period before 2007 and why it slowed more sharply in later years when demand stalled. Consistent with this explanation, the countries that contributed most to global trade growth during the period of rapid trade growth also experienced large imbalances. Constraining trade deficits to historical norms, this paper shows that trade growth would have been more moderate in the late 1990s and early 2000s and stronger in subsequent years. Going forward, assuming global imbalances remain relatively unconstrained, the relationship between trade growth and income growth will likely be less stable than before the 1990s.” (From PIIE)

Key facts about U.S. immigration policies and proposed changes.
Pew Research Center, February 26, 2018, 5 pages.
“For years, proposals have sought to shift the nation’s immigration system away from its current emphasis on family reunification and employment-based migration, and toward a points-based system that prioritizes the admission of immigrants with certain education and employment qualifications. These proposals have received renewed attention under the Trump administration.” (From Pew Research Center)

“This paper examines a set of such studies that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Government Accountability Office have used to estimate the costs of human-caused climate change for the U.S. by the end of the 21st century. The costs include deaths from extreme heat, lost hours of work from extreme heat, and deaths from heat-caused air pollution. The paper also examines another study, published in Nature, that projects the effect of human-caused climate change on global economic production.” (From Manhattan Institute)
