What are the cost and consequences of industrial policy?

America isn’t new to industrial policy, but the Biden Administration has signalled it revive the government’s industrial ambitions. Already president Trump made it a point to have industrial production repatriating to America – and used trade policy to give a premium to domestic manufacturers. President Biden is now adding a new American Jobs Plan that is planning big investments in infrastructure, industry and US jobs. Is America now outlining a new industrial policy for the country? What will be its consequences for trade, innovation and economic growth? Please join us for a webinar with Scott Lincicome.
