How has current US foreign policy impacted globalization and trade in the world economy?
The United States has traditionally been a leader in the effort to increase globalization and free trade throughout the world. However, our current administration has taken a different path. This seminar will explore how changes in trade policies have affected different industries, the US economy at large and the role of the United States in foreign investment and development. Who benefits from our trade policies and who does not? Are tariffs the best way to protect American jobs? Do international trade agreements lead to an increase in trade and production or do they just limit future economic policy decisions? We will look at the economics behind the headlines.
