Event description

Description

What does America’s new Administration and new position on trade mean for its engagement with the world? How much of our diplomacy is economic and what does that mean for the current debate on trade? Economists understand the academic value of trade, and policymakers embraced the textbook view that it benefits the overall economy. But the failure to properly account for the losers of trade is what has gotten us to this point. What is the latest academic work on this phenomenon and what can policymakers do with new research? How are new policy ideas and think tanks affecting NAFTA renegotiations…or not?
