Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Explains the Toll of China's Ongoing Currency Manipulation

Posted by scapozzola on 09/15/2011

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) gave an impassioned floor speech yesterday urging action on China's continued, illegal currency manipulation, which has cost millions of U.S. jobs.  Brown cited a June report by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) that estimates up to 2.25 million jobs could be created, and the U.S. budget deficit reduced by $71.4 billion annually, if China’s and other nations’ currencies were brought to market values.

Brown's speech starts at 6:46:44 into the C-Span footage.
