PIIE's Top Reads and Views of 2015

December 31, 2015 12:30 PM

The top 20 most read items for 2015 on the Peterson Institute for International Economics website reflect both a wide range of subjects and recurrent themes—in particular a strong interest in all things related to trade, exchange rates, and China in a year that saw the conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade negotiations, a volatile stock market in Shanghai, and sharp losses in emerging-market currencies.
