   There is a difference between what is being said and what is happening in Washington, and for that matter, in capital cities around the world. The level of noise regarding sweeping changes to trade policy has reached ear-piercing levels.
   To combat this change, sentiment towards globalization and to provide a medium that advocates for more inclusive global trade policies, prior to the inauguration, Howard Publications launched its newest title - the Adam Smith Project.
   Based upon our reader feedback, and to provide our members with enhanced visibility into what is really going on inside the Beltway, our team has been hard at work on a new web application called TradeTracker.
   Designed as a frontline service, TradeTracker provides time-crunched professionals with need-to-know information to assess and swiftly react to action in the Capitol that may affect their business, trading partners, or even their firm’s compliance with federal regulations on trade.
   While we’ve pushed this out, TradeTracker is still in beta. We're excited to give you a sample, and we’d really like to hear what you find valuable and where we can add additional value. I encourage you to connect with our team about the tool at TradeTracker@adamsmithproject.com.
