To make it easier, let's imagine USA exports nothing and imports nothing (or the exports have the same value with the imports = 0 trade deficit = the country exports the same amount of jobs as it is importing).
And then, the next year, USA starts importing ceramics from China, paying 1 billion dollars for it. Other than that, it does export nothing and it does import nothing (or it keeps the trade deficit at 0).
That means some American ceramic workers will lose their jobs because the jobs will be exported (outsourced) to China.
My question is: to make an average, how many jobs are lost by such a trade deficit, in an industry of reference, as the ceramic industry for example?
What I'm asking for is an estimate because it's clear you can't measure it exactly - it depends on many factors. So an average estimate is a very good answer.
