Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade.

Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China. What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices? There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.
