Professor Hanson's recent research study referenced below was conducted in collaboration with David H. Autor, MIT and NBER, and David Dorn, CEMFI and IZA, and clearly states that increases in negative social costs to the USA can be directly attributed to America's increased uncontrolled trading with Communist China. The study further indicated that professed financial benefits claimed by those importing from China are cancelled out by those increases in negative social costs and therefore China trade is simply bad for American society.

"Our estimates imply that the losses in economic efficiency from trade-induced increases in the usage of public benefits are, in the medium run, of the
same order of magnitude as U.S. consumer gains from trade with China." --

One of the most productive and highly cited economists in the United States, Hanson is considered one of a handful of superstars in the field of international economics. A pioneer in developing “the new empirical economics,” he is an authority on international trade, international migration, economic development and foreign investment, applying economic analysis to understanding the social implications of timely issues. Hanson is committed to the dissemination of his findings to policy makers and the global community.
“Professor Hanson is one of his generation’s pioneers who have combined very original ways of investigating problems empirically with astute innovations in theorizing,” said Peter Cowhey, dean of the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. “His recent work will stand among the most important contributions to the field of international economics and migration.”
"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear
to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within
itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and
defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very
questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."
