ECIPE welcomes you to a lecture with Professor Kenichi Kawasaki on alternative futures, without alternative facts.
The trading system is shocked by great unravelling. Prof Kenichi Kawasaki, a leading authority on econometric modelling of trade agreements, discuss the economic impact from recent events, such as Brexit; or the Trump administration’s announcement to withdraw from TPP with a potential Japan-US bilateral to take its place; or the US threats of trade remedies against China and Mexico.
What is the GDP impact from Brexit on the EU and the UK? Which FTAs could potentially undo the damage? Is a “TPP11” without the United States economically viable? Should Japan choose the bilateral route with the US? What are the costs and benefits of each option?
Presentation by Kenichi Kawasaki, Professor and Senior Fellow, GRIPS (National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies), followed by Q/A and discussions on policy implications.
