    Any discussion of trade is incomplete without reference to the global value chain, but it is rarely quantified, much less quantified & displayed in visual format. Can this even be achieved with the data that is available? What new data collection would make this possible? Can you point to a case in which the intended impact of a trade policy has an opposite/ironic impact because of complexities of multinational value chains involved?

      I was just thinking that. I’m writing about GDP composition over time… I have gathered trade balance data for China and the rest of the world from 1980 onwards, but I strayed away from details. I am trying to give a full picture, including consumption, debt vs savings etc, so I don’t want to spend too much length on trade.

      Perhaps we could pick a specific good, perhaps one that goes through OBOR, and show how value is added around the world?
