Today at the GC: Trade, Jobs, and Inequality

Wednesday, April 26, 6:30 pm
Trade, Jobs, and Inequality
Moderated by Eduardo Porter

President Trump has promised to follow two simple rules: “Made in America. Made by Americans.” Will the administration’s trade agenda result in more US manufacturing jobs? And how will it impact wages and income disparity, in our country and globally? New York Times columnist Eduardo Porter (Economic Scene) hosts a panel of experts on the complex interrelationship between trade, jobs, and inequality.


Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist, New York Times columnist, and GC distinguished professor of economics and senior scholar at the Stone Center.

David Autor, leading labor economist; professor at MIT, where he directs the School Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative; and editor in chief of the Journal of Economic Perspectives.

Brad DeLong, economics professor at U.C. Berkeley; weblogger for the Washington Center for Equitable Growth; and former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of the treasury, in the Clinton administration.

Anne Harrison, professor at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania; former director of development policy at the World Bank; and author of Globalization and Poverty.

Part of the series “The First 100 Days.” Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality and the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC).
