February 3 – Industrial Policy: The current discussion of industrial policy in the United States is not simply about whether or not to support specific companies or industries, but about trust or mistrust of the government and its ability to manage the economy and deal with a rising China. The upheaval in supply chains during the pandemic exposed weaknesses in the international economy. What policies can the United States implement to deal with trade and the economy?
Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, January 20, running through Thursday, March 10 in the Koch Building at the Aspen Institute.
