*The map shows estimates of the effects of ending currency manipulation over three years, modeled as having begun in 2013. The map shows the results in the high-impact scenario, which assumes that ending currency manipulation would reduce the trade deficit by $500 billion in 2015 relative to the trade deficit in 2012. The number of jobs gained (or lost) is relative to 2011 employment.
