Total jobs lost or displaced between 2008 and 2013 alone amounted to 1,002,400, either by the elimination of existing jobs or by the prevention of new job creation. Figure A shows visually how rising trade deficits have displaced a growing number of jobs every year since China joined the WTO, with the exception of 2009 (during the Great Recession). On average, 287,000 jobs per year have been lost or displaced since China’s entry into the WTO (as shown in Table 1, last row, data column four). The continuing growth of job displacement between 2008 and 2013 despite the relatively small increase in the bilateral trade deficit in this period reflects the relatively rapid growth of . imports of computer and electronics parts from China, and the fact that the price index for most of these products fell continuously throughout the study period, as noted later in this paper. The share of . imports from China accounted for by computer and electronic products (in current, nominal dollars) increased from percent in 2008 to percent in 2013 (according to the authors’ analysis of USITC 2014).
