Trade as War:
Unbalancing Global Politics & Economics
October 2 & 9 (2 Weeks), from 2-4 PM at OISE, 252 Bloor Street West, Room TBA
Trade is a tool to achieve political ends. And recent statements about trade are steeped in the rhetoric of war. We are seeing an economic battle between the globalists who see trade as a “win-win” for everyone, & the anti-globalists, such as Trump, who see global trade as having created winners & losers, with massive trade deficits & surpluses. Who is right? Let's discuss...
- To keep our discussions lively & thought-provoking we will have a 'Peer Panel' in this course. Four volunteer class participants will have the opportunity to select an issue from the prepared class handout on which they will have a month to prepare their comment for a class.
- Everyone will still receive a digital copy of the class handout a few days ahead of class & a 'hard copy' of the handout in class.
- The book 'The Weaponization of Trade' by Rebecca & Jack Harding will be a significant source of the class content but not the only source!
