This week we meet with Uri Dadush, one of the world's leading experts on international trade, who ran the Economists' Business Unit before spending decades as the World Bank's top expert on global trade. After "retiring" from the World Bank, Uri served as a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He now teaches at the University of Maryland and consults for a remarkable array of governments and companies. He joins us today to discuss the current status of world trade, geopolitics, international affairs, and the enormous elephant in the room -- the geopolitical relationship between the U.S. and China.
Join us as we discuss the following…
Is the world separating into trade blocks?
Is the World Trade Orgranization dead in the water? Can it be revived?
What is the past, current, and future economic relationship between China and the U.S.?
If China invades Taiwan, what happens to U.S. — China economic relations?
Will China and India dominate the world economy over time?
Going forward, what's the best path for global cooperation both economically and politically?
Join us for these topics and more on Economics Matters Episode No.2.
The podcast, Economic Matters, is hosted by Laurence Kotlikoff and moderated by Alex Kotlikoff.
