Is the global trade policy of the last century unravelling? Alan Tonelson, founder of Realitycheck — a public policy blog, sits down with Real Vision's Ed Harrison to answer that question and dissect the policy of "America First." Tonelson argues that the present geopolitical and economic system is not benefiting the United States. He believes an "America First" policy of economic nationalism will not only help restore the U.S. manufacturing sector but will better meet longer-term American economic and geo-strategic goals. Tonelson breaks down why that system is deteriorating and what the rise of economic nationalism means for the financial markets and the global economy. Filmed on November 22, 2019 in New York.
