Lecture by Professor Jagdish Bhagwati
Following the unraveling of the financial markets in 2008, world trade in goods was the first casualty. The economic crisis did not only bring a global adjustment in demand, but also populist calls for increased regulation and protectionism. So far, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has failed to respond. It finds itself mired in the never-ending Doha round, with no light at the end of the tunnel. What are the lessons of the current crisis for trade policy? What is the future of the multilateral trading system?
We are very pleased to once again welcome as guest speaker Professor Jagdish Bhagwati. As a world-leading economist at the Columbia University and the U.S. Council on Foreign relations he has pioneered several fields of trade economics. Author of numerous books, Professor Bhagwati has tirelessly advocated the case for free trade as a writer, debater, scholar and adviser to several international organizations.
