International Trade by Country

I don't know how much there is to see in these graphs that you haven't seen or read before, e.g. we know that our imports from China have increased faster than our exports to China. But since I put these graphs together I may as well pass them along. They show the value of imports and exports and the import and export shares between the U.S. and Canada, Japan, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, and China. First, here are the imports to the U.S. and the import shares (these are not seasonally adjusted):

And here are the same two graphs for exports from the U.S. (again, these are not seasonally adjusted):

Any surprises? I had forgotten how large the trade flow is with Mexico, particularly the share of exports. For reference, NAFTA went into effect on January 1, 1994.
