NPR's Steve Inskeep looks at America's growing trade deficit. He speaks with: Trade expert Nicholas Lardy about the surge of imports from China; Rep. Cass Ballenger (R-NC), who is concerned about the loss of jobs in the textile industry in his state; and Steve Lamar of the American Apparel and Footwear Association about lesser-known countries now sending goods to the United States.
