Today in Global Small Business: If T-Shirts Cost Another Nickel, So Be It

What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:

  • Listen to Laurel Delaney's Global Trade Trends Report 2021 – recording available now.
  • The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) announced that 53 technology startups will join global technology leaders in representing Japan at CES 2021, which will take place virtually from Jan. 11-14, 2021
  • Quote of the week: We want strong communities in the United States.  And if that means that T-shirts cost another nickel, then T-shirts will cost another nickel." – US Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer (12/17/20)
  • How global small businesses can overcome barriers to manufacturing Industry 4.0 adoption.
  • An order issued on 1/9/21 empowers Beijing to tell companies to ignore U.S. restrictions and allows them to sue other businesses if they comply.  Biden has his work count out for him.
  • Trump's legacy, the shame.
