I am absolutely grateful to work at Americans for Tax Reform Foundation, an organization that values individual volition, market freedom, and entrepreneurship. I am deeply thankful to ATR's Executive Director, Christopher Butler and ATR's Vice President of International Affairs, Lorenzo Montanari for giving me the opportunity to transition this side project into a planned deliverable.

I also must thank Daniel Griswold for offering an encouraging foreword while enjoying his retirement from a long career as a trade expert.

A special thank you to the authors of the case studies published in the 2021 Trade Barrier Index. The Index continues to be a platform for think tanks to share their challenges and successes with trade policy. I am also grateful to our Senior Associate Rowan Saydlowski, fellow Giorgina Agostini, and associates Zsombor Verkmann and Mary Ann Cortese for the help in research and producing the 2021 Index.
