Abstract:

Since 1945, American foreign economic policy has been oriented toward engagement with the international system. Given the changes in world politics and economics as well as American domestic politics over the past twenty years, many scholars have wondered whether American foreign economic policy might change. What groups have supported this internationalist policy since the late 1970s, and has this coalition changed over this period? We examine legislative voting in the US House of Representatives from the 96th to the 108th Congress (1979-2004) on trade and aid issues. Beyond describing this coalition, we use theory to develop testable hypotheses about sources of support and opposition for aid and trade. We then test these hypotheses rigorously. We show that a bipartisan coalition has persisted supporting trade and aid; Stolper-Samuelson models best explain this. But these two coalitions differ in important ways. Most interestingly, labor and liberal Democrats remain part of the coalition supporting aid, while they no longer do on trade.
