Trade Wars with Dr. Jon Haveman
San Rafael Public library
1100 E Street
For nearly two years, the United States has been aggressively using international trade policy to achieve its foreign policy goals. With no country is this exercise of power more clear than with China.
In this talk, we will discuss the various forms of trade policy that are being used and the likely economic implications.
- Do tariffs create more jobs than they destroy?
- Do they actually work for getting other countries to change their behavior?
- What are the distributional implications?
Jon Haveman, Ph.D is Executive Director of the National Economic Education Delegation (NEED), a San Rafael nonprofit. He is also CEO of EconSpeak.org. He is a man on a mission to make economic policy literacy relevant and real.
