U.S. Trade Policy – How Do Trade Agreements Impact the Economy?

  • 03 Nov 2014
  • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • CSUSB - Santo Manuel Student Union Events Center Room 106A

Many have called the U.S. the leading global free trade matchmaker. In fact U.S. trade policy has become a tool of its foreign as well as its economic policy. The logic behind this economic statecraft is that promoting free markets supports the development of democracy around the world. Many believe that through trade the U.S. gains valuable and stable partners, both in business and in diplomacy. As China and other emerging nations battle the U.S. for global influence, are trade agreements still of value for America? What are the domestic costs and benefits of pursuing a free trade policy? How does trade policy relate to international policies on climate change and food security

Speaker: Dr. Jim Charkeins, former Executive Director of the California Council for Economic Education and a professor of economics at CSUSB, 2013 recipient of the national Council for Economic Education’s Adam Smith Award
