According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Foreign Trade Division? What the heck is that? I've never heard them cited before as a source of statistics for international commerce. The U.S Census Bureau has one job (count people) and they don't even do that well. Sounds like another bait and switch from a government agency trying to make things appear better than they really are.

The 1st 6 months of 2009 were the worst in 70 years. Everyone is hyping the modest return to the marrkets and the Export Division of Ohio is a total waste of junket trips on the Ohio tax payer dime.

Now Obama is exporting the imam of ground zero and his raise money to build a monumnet to the muslim terrorist of 911 on our dime and Ted is begging this one and out marxist while exporting Ohio jobs. Get rid of the dems and impeach the man child to save the USA.

Wrong! The division has been around a hell of a lot longer than you and I have. Dismissing something because you've never heard of it before makes for a pretty uninformed individual.
Beginning with 1790, annual statistical statements on the imports and exports of the United States were compiled by the Treasury Department from reports submitted by the collectors of customs and transmitted to Congress by the Secretary of the Treasury. These annual statements for the years 1790 to 1820 have been brought together and published with other reports required by the Congress in two volumes titled American State Papers. By an Act of Congress, approved February 10, 1820, provisions were made for the preparation of statistical accounts of foreign commerce of the United States, by the Registrar of the Treasury, to show the kinds, quantities, and values of all articles exported to and of all articles imported from each foreign country. Beginning with 1821, these reports compiled by local collectors of customs, were consolidated and published annually in the volume Commerce and Navigation of the United States. Another Act of Congress, approved July 28, 1866, established the Bureau of Statistics in the Treasury Department and specified that the kinds, quantities, and values of all articles exported and imported should be distinctly set forth in the statistical accounts, by countries of destinations or by shipment, and that the exports of articles produced or manufactured in the United States should be shown separately from the re-exports of foreign articles previously imported into the United States. A further Congressional Act on February 14, 1903, transferred the Bureau of Statistics from the Treasury Department to the new Department of Commerce and Labor. An Act on January 5, 1923, transferred the Section of Customs Statistics of New York from the Treasury Department to the Department of Commerce, and by order of the Secretary of Commerce, it was consolidated with the Division of Foreign Trade Statistics of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce. In May 1941, the Division of Foreign Trade Statistics was transferred to the Bureau of the Census, where it has remained to the present. From these meager beginnings the statistics on U.S. foreign trade in merchandise have evolved into the current broad range of highly detailed statistics designed to meet the needs of a variety of users.
