March 16: The End of Globalization?
As the United States enters another election season, the merits and drawbacks of globalization are again being debated by the presidential candidates. With the passing of the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s America First doctrine, protectionist policies have become more prevalent, challenging globalization. What is globalization and how will it be affected by protectionist trade policies? How will the United States and the world be affected by such policies? Is globalization really at an end, or in need of a refresh?
Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, January 26, running through Tuesday, March 16. All sessions will take place via Zoom.
Fee: $170, includes all sessions and readings.
