*The table estimates the effects of ending currency manipulation over three years, modeled as having begun in 2013. The low-impact scenario assumes ending currency manipulation would reduce the trade deficit by $200 billion in 2015 relative to the trade deficit in 2012.

**Totals may vary slightly due to rounding.
