Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
'97 to 2000 were boom years in the US. Don't know if it's that odd that imports would rise quicker than exports. Quickly rising GDP means that exports were still rising quickly, imports just more quickly. You might ascribe it to a lot of foreign investment in the US in this period and a strong dollar. What happened in 2000 is far more drastic.
