    DescriptionAmid reports of rising economic nationalism and potential trade wars, what gets missed is that the strong uptick in trade over the last two years looks likely to wind down even without the newest threats. Business should pause before associating this expansion with the trade bonanza of the 1990s and 2000s — trade’s golden years. In this opinion piece, economists Erik Lundh and Abdul Erumban of The Conference Board explain why the mega-trends that once turbocharged trade have lost much of their muster. Something else is afoot, and it looks all but certain that the trade recovery will be short-lived.
