In “Panelists Say Service Exports a Bright Spot Amid Trade Deficit but Impediments Remain,” Casey Wooten discussed some of Brad Jensen’s remarks at our October 24th Georgetown on the Hill event.  The piece appeared in the subscription-only news service, Bloomberg BNA Law Reports.  At the event Jensen argued for the need to invest more in the services industry, and specifically in trade in services.  Jensen is quoted as saying:
