Description

As the Doha round languishes, and free trade agreements with Peru, Columbia, Panama and South Korea wait in the wings, Congress is grappling with how to approach U.S. trade policy.  We work and live in a global economy built on freer trade, yet there's a growing angst associated with globalization that has given rise to a populist trend toward protectionism. Join acclaimed trade reporter Bruce Stokes, of the National Journal, CFR’s Ted Alden, formerly of the Financial Times, and Council Vice President Nancy Roman for a discussion on U.S. trade policy in the balance.
