CANCELLED - Trade Agendas in the US Presidential Campaign

Gary Clyde Hufbauer, Reginald Jones Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics. Moderated by Phil Levy.

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been canceled.

Trade has featured prominently in this presidential campaign, with both major party candidates strongly criticizing international trade agreements. In a set of recent studies, the nonpartisan Peterson Institute for International Economics analyzed both the likely impact and the feasibility of the trade agendas of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—and found that both would “deeply harm” the American economy if implemented. According to the 2016 Chicago Council Survey, a majority of Americans believe free trade is beneficial to the US economy and consumers—though the main concern for many is the threat trade poses to job security. How would the respective candidates’ proposed trade policies impact American businesses and communities?
