Spring Faculty Panel: Trump, Trade, Tariffs

Jim Caporaso, Susan Whiting, and Caitlin Ainsley
Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm
Sieg Hall, Room 134

Protectionism, in the form of tariff and non-tariffbarriers, is on the rise in the U.S. and in other parts of the world. Do trade wars have winners and losers, as President Trump suggests in his remarks that they “are easy to win”? What are the arguments for and against protectionism and what can we learn from the history of trade wars?
