The German trade surplus is often criticized by international trade partners, also by the United States of America. Is the imbalance only a problem for German trade partners? Or does it harm the German economy as well? What are the reasons for export surplus? We are going to discuss this with Professor Wade Jacoby, Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. He will give a speech on the controversial topic of trade surplus or “Surplus Germany” from an American perspective.
