Rare Earths, Economic Versus National Security, and the WTO Vaccine Debate

In this episode, Andrew and the Trade Guys break down reports that China is mulling export restrictions on rare earth minerals, a move that could imperil production of U.S. military planes and other high-tech goods. They’ll analyze how the Biden administration is reforming the Trump administration’s view that economic security is a component of national security. Plus, the Trade Guys will react to the WTO’s incoming director-general, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, latest comments on the WTO’s role in vaccine manufacturing and distribution.
