We would like to invite you and anyone affiliated with the International Trade Club of Chicago to an upcoming University of Chicago Institute of Politics event on “The Future of Trade” under the Trump Administration. Former New York Times columnist Jackie Calmes will be moderating a conversation on the subject with former U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman.
What is the likely future of global trade, and trade agreements, under a president whose anti-trade talk was central to his campaign appeal? Will Trump, backed by trade skeptics in both parties, end the United States’ decades-long leadership role in setting the rules of the global road on trade, defy the market forces driving globalization and perhaps provoke a trade war? What is the fallout – for the economy and America’s global standing — of abandoning the TPP and NAFTA, and, more generally, of throwing up new tariffs and trade barriers to foreign goods? Join the IOP as it welcomes former U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Director of Research at the Economic Policy Institute Josh Bivens for a discussion moderated by Visiting Fellow Jackie Calmes on these and other questions about trade and the US economy.
