We had to wait an extra week for the results, but we’re finally ready to unpack what President-elect Biden’s victory means for U.S. international trade priorities in 2021 and beyond. Our friend and very special guest, Richard Mojica, helps us break down what to expect in the U.S., China, and the EU, including what may and may not change with respect to the current era of protectionism, tariffs, free trade agreements, reshoring of supply chains, human rights, and much more. Brian and Tim then revisit their recent predictions on Iran and Cuba to add some new insights based on the events of the past few weeks. Plus, in the Lightning Round, we check in on what’s happening with TikTok (no one seems to know, including the U.S. government) and briefly gaze upon OFAC’s recent advisory regarding high-value artwork to ponder what it all means.
