The past, present, and future of free trade
If you’re following recent global news, you are most likely aware of the discussions surrounding international trade agreements and their impact on businesses both in the United States and abroad.
You may also be asking some questions, such as:
- Is the way the United States is handling its trade relationship with China pragmatic?
- If the loss of jobs primarily affects middle-aged people in the rust belt, how can investing in higher education help these people whose primary concern is getting food on the table for their families?
- How can this generation of students succeed in the globalized world?
Last month, as part of the Gabelli School Speaker Series, Matt Gold, former deputy assistant U.S. trade representative and adjunct professor of law at Fordham Law School, answered these questions and more when he came to campus to share his insights on international trade policy. You can view his full talk below.
