The U.S. trade deficit expanded in July, due in part to slowing growth in China and Japan's ongoing economic struggles.
On Monday, China reported that inflation eased in August, hinting at an economy on the mend. The deficit with China jumped to an all-time high of $30.1 billion in July, according to U.S. figures released last week.
Japan's economy expanded more rapidly than originally thought between April and June. The country's Cabinet Office said Monday that the economy expanded faster than estimated during the first quarter as well.
