Open: The Progressive Case for Free Trade, Immigration & Global Capital

January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

With the winds of trade wars blowing as they have not done in decades, and critics on both left and right flirting with protectionism, economist Kimberly Clausing of Reed College, explores how a free and open economy may continue to be a better way to advance the interests of working Americans. Why does globalization have a bad name – does it, as liberal critics say, exploit the poor and undermine labor? Or on the conservative critique, does globalization tilt the field against advanced economies? Join us for a compelling discussion on open economies, on immigration and newcomers’ role in growth, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and – against a backdrop of fragile international bi- and multi-lateral agreements – what the future of free trade looks like.

Kimberly Clausing is Thormund Miller and Walter Mintz Professor of Economics at Reed College. She is one of the country’s leading experts on the taxation of multinational corporations, a subject on which she has testified before Congress. Clausing has written for the New York Timesand Fortune and spoken on National Public Radio.
