7 PETERSON INSTITUTE FOR INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS TRADE AND INVESTMENT POLICY WATCH BLOG BATTLE #3: UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICES FOR TECHNOLOGY, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (IP) USTR Self-Initiates Investigation of China August 18, 2017 US Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer self-initiates an investigation of China under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, after President Trump’s memorandum of August 14, 2017, instructing him to consider whether to investigate any of China’s laws, policies, practices, or actions that may be unreasonable or discriminatory and that may be harming American intellectual property rights, innovation, or technology development. Read “Rogue 301: Trump to Dust Off another Outdated US Trade Law?” by Chad P. Bown. Unfair Trade Practices Investigation Results March 22, 2018 The Trump administration releases its report finding China is conducting unfair trade practices related to tech- nology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974. Trump indicates forthcoming remedies of tariffs on up to $60 billion of Chinese products, a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute, and new rules on investment. US Threatens Tariffs April 3, 2018 The Trump administration releases its $50 billion list of 1,333 Chinese products under consideration for 25 percent tariffs, which covers $46.2 billion of US imports. The top sectors hit are machinery, mechanical appliances, and electrical equipment. Roughly 85 percent of the imports targeted by the tariffs are in intermediate inputs and capital goods, which would raise costs within American companies’ supply chains.

They mostly affect US transportation (vehicles, aircraft, and vessels) and vegetable products (largely soybeans). US Considers Additional Tariffs on $100 Billion April 5, 2018 Trump instructs trade officials to consider whether an additional $100 billion of US imports from China should be subject to new tariffs.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
