Fisher Investments' Founder Shares His Thoughts on the US Trade Deficit Reaching All-Time Highs

Fisher Investments’ founder, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer Ken Fisher shares his thoughts on the US trade deficit. Ken believes the word “deficit” is misleading. He notes investors often consider a deficit as negative—but in this case, it means foreign demand for US products and services is robust.

Ken believes the globalized nature of trade overshadows a single country’s trade balance and investors should focus more on how the world economy is performing as a whole.
