Globalization at a Cross Roads: The 35th Annual Monetary & Trade Conference
Start Date: 4/21/2017Start Time: 8:30 AM
End Date: 4/21/2017End Time: 12:30 PM

Event Description
Recent political developments cast doubt on the importance of globalization and question the benefits associated with free trade and open markets. While academic research has documented welfare benefits from free trade, some skeptics have recently argued that globalization has gone too far, causing dislocation of jobs, amplifying inequality, and creating vulnerabilities in the global financial system. In response, it is proposed that the fast pace of interdependence should be reversed to preserve employment, improve national prosperity, and stimulate demand through investing in local, not global, business opportunities. The conference will focus on three aspects of the debate of de-globalization: (a) free trade, (b) investment flows, and (c) global financial system vulnerabilities. Consideration will be placed on addressing challenges and concerns, but will also explore new arising opportunities from globalization.
