ABSTRACT
The article discusses the economic policy of protectionism in the U.S. Around 35 percent of U.S. manufactured goods are protected. Further, protectionism is rising among all industrialized nations. The rates of protected goods and services have increased by 15 percent. However, for registering a growth in the economy, the U.S. has to consider the ongoing changes in technology, security, and standard of living.
