Bernie Saffran Lecture: "The Future of Trade Under Trump" by Keith Head '86, USB
Start Date: 3/20/2017Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 3/20/2017End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:

For the first time in the post-WW2 era, the US has an openly protectionist president advocating, among other things, 35% tariffs on imported cars from Mexico, even higher tariffs on China, and a possible US exit from the World Trade Organization.

In this talk I discuss my research on how Trump's tariffs could affect the auto industry. After showing some evidence that globalisation has been over-hyped, I speculate on the possible retreat from a half century of regionalism in trade relations. Keith Head '86 is a professor in the Strategy and Business Economics Division at the Sauder School of Business of of the University of British Columbia.
