The U.S. Chamber's Plan to Help Americans Compete and Win in the Worldwide Economy

The United States faces a choice to reach out and seize the benefits of international engagement, or retreat into isolationism. This choice is central to the competitiveness of the U.S. economy and the hopes of hardworking citizens pursuing the American Dream.

America has the most open economy and society in the world. Americans appreciate the benefits of engagement by a two-to-one margin, but some question this openness, wondering whether the unfettered flow of goods, capital, and people helps or hurts the average family. While some are hurt -- and should be helped -- the facts will show that the overwhelming majority of Americans derive great benefits from international engagement.
