Marketplace puts your mind at ease re: the trade deficit

So I just finished (poorly) my Econ 101 class at school, which means I assume I know more than everyone when it come to macro and micro economics.  Duh!  (There has to be a think called 101-syndrome…).  Anyway, Marketplace has a good little piece on why the average American should not be too concerned about the trade deficit.  Worth a quick listen.

Since it is the end of the year, you still have about one day left to donate to Marketplace.  Tax deductible, etc.
