Part 6: Summary of Results

Coughlin provides a summary of the research. The bottom line being that the U.S. export sector weathered the Great Trade Collapse quite well. Coughlin attributes this largely due to the domination of U.S. exports by large firms which contributed to the resiliency of the U.S. export sector.
