This book contains the papers and comments delivered at that conference. A sharp decline in the value of the dollar against major foreign cur- rencies began in March 1985 and continued through December 1987.

Various papers discuss the cause of the trade deficit, the reason for its size and persistence, its relation- ship with other macroeconomic variables, its impact on other industrialized countries, and various policy proposals aimed at reducing the deficit.
