 Great Decisions Member Dinner
Trade, Jobs and Politics

, April 6th
Dinner and Discussion 6:00-9:00 PM

The U.S. political mood toward trade has gone sour. One need look no further than the 2016 presidential contest for the popular narrative: trade means that China wins, at America’s expense. But do the numbers support that conclusion? The metrics used to gauge economic strength—Gross Domestic Product and balance of trade—have not kept up with the realities of modern manufacturing. Obtaining an accurate picture of U.S. economic stature requires a critique of those numbers. Only then can the U.S. develop appropriate policy solutions for the challenges at hand. Discussion facilitated by Clifford Gilpin.

This is a special event for members.
Reservations are limited.
$50 per person

You will be sent reading material for the topic as well as directions to the host home upon completion of registration and payment. Please note that due to the nature of this event, hosts may not be able to accommodate special diets.
