The Future Direction of U.S. International Economic Policy

Against the backdrop of slowing U.S. economic growth, rapid changes in the world economy, and ongoing public ambivalence regarding the benefits of globalization, some have called for a strategic review, or pause for reflection, with respect to U.S. international economic policy. Looking at trade as well as development and monetary policy, a distinguished panel of experts will discuss the possible future direction of U.S. policy in a new administration.

Please join us for this stimulating discussion stemming from "Virtuous Circle: Strengthening Broad-Based Global Progress in Living Standards," a recent report by Mr. Samans and Jonathan Jacoby as part of CAP’s Progressive Growth series on the next administration’s economic policy. "Virtuous Circle" – and a link to other Progressive Growth reports – can be found here.

Sarah Wartell, Executive Vice President, Center for American Progress
