USSC Director of Research Jared Mondschein was featured in an article on discussing the possible impact of a second Trump term on the global economy.

On Trump's proposal to increase tariffs, Mondschein said he would use this threat as a negotiation tactic to extract concessions as opposed to fully implementing them.

On speculation that Trump would attempt to influence the Federal Reserve, Mondschein said he believes Trump wouldn’t "drastically change” the Fed as the Senate would constrain him.

On concerns that Trump would upend President Biden's clean energy policy, Mondschein said that Australia and the US' work on clean energy and critical mineral supply chains will continue however will be rebranded away from climate change.
