In Hawai?i, there is a lot that ties the state to the Asia-Pacific. Part of that is geography, but it's also culture and economics. Although Hawai?i doesn't export much in the way on physical goods, the trade policy set in motion by the Trump Administration could have ripple effects for the Aloha State. Dr. Adam Posen, President of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, shared his perspective on trade issues with The Conversation.

Bill Dorman has been the news director at Hawaiʻi Public Radio since 2011.
