Cletus Coughlin, senior vice president and policy adviser to the president of the St. Louis Fed, gave a presentation on "The Great Trade Collapse and Rebound: A State-by-State View" on July 1, 2014, as part of the Global Economic Forum held at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
Part 2: Country-based Results
Coughlin presents U.S. data on known exports, extensive margin and intensive margin during the trade collapse (2008-2009) and the trade rebound (2009-2010). He then compares U.S. data to France, Japan, and Belgium during those same periods and compares U.S. trade data during the Great Trade Collapse to similar data from the 2001 recession and 1997 Asian financial crisis.
