Abstract

The United States has been Korea's largest trading partner, and while the two countries have enjoyed substantial benefits from the mutual trade relationship, there has also been some substantial trade friction. Currently, the United States is experiencing record high trade deficits, but unlike the past, such trade deficit has not become a political problem. In fact, most Americans seem to be unconcerned about the trade deficit. The trade deficit has not been emphasized in the 2000 Presidential elections. Such lack of concern is probably due to the extended period of economic growth in the United States, where the unemployment rate is at a historical low, and productivity is increasing steadily. Due to the lack of general concern about the trade deficit, most of the bilateral trade problems between Korea and the United States have tended to concentrate on certain politically sensitive, or economically strategic industries.
