When the US was a nation of shipping, it had to pay for shipping to other countries
The US had to shell out billions of dollars for its foreign-owned shipping in the 1980s.
The amount is estimated to be as high as $300 billion in 2016, according to a report released Monday by the Center for Responsive Politics.
But that was before the recession hit, as foreign shipping boomed and the US government struggled to meet its obligations.
Now, the US is at risk of paying more for shipping through the years.
The report says the US has been spending billions on imports to meet domestic shipping needs, with imports rising by nearly 5% a year since the Great Recession.
The US has imported $27.8 billion in goods to China since 2010, and that has left the country’s government with more than $12.5 billion in debt.
That has left it facing a deficit, and the new report says that is a major concern.
US shipping has always been a big part of the US economy, said Ben Schuman, the author of the report and a former director of the Office of Naval Research.
But it’s also an important way of getting products from one country to another, and a big chunk of that money goes to foreign shipping.
The cost of imported goods is just a fraction of what it would be if US companies were to pay their own way, he said.
The shipping industry is still growing, with shipments now larger than those to the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy.
But the industry is facing challenges that have been highlighted in the report, including the increasing cost of cargo containers, and changing transportation patterns, like the increasing number of trains that are carrying goods from overseas to the US.
Schuman said that was something the US could use to attract new foreign ships, but that there’s also a downside: The US can’t always be seen to be on top of global supply chains.
It’s not like we can’t do more to support a lot of countries that are doing well.
But I don’t think it’s necessarily a good thing for US shipping.
And it’s something that the administration could do more of, but it’s not something they can do at the moment, said Schuman.
The U.S. has a huge trade deficit with China, and has not been able to compete with that country for goods.
But shipping was a huge part of American economy, so there’s a potential for a trade war.
US ships still outsell Chinese ships on the international market, according the report.
The trade gap is also growing, but Schuman says the disparity is narrowing.
The United States still has a large trade deficit, with China being the biggest supplier to the U.K. and France, and Japan.
The country’s exports to China are still up about 3.2% in 2016.
But China has been expanding its imports, so the U
