"Globalization and the American Worker: Learning from the China Shock"

Monday, March 20, 2017 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Goldwin Smith Hall, Hollis E. Cornell Auditorium 232 East Ave, Central Campus

Gordon Hanson (Economics, UCSD) will discuss how increased import competition from low-wage countries has disrupted local labor markets in traditional manufacturing regions and how this disruption has affected US politics. Prof. Hanson's investigations, with David Autor and others, have played a leading role in establishing the impact of imports on long-term unemployment in the US and the political consequences of this displacement. His influential studies have also illuminated the economic impact of immigration to the US, especially from Mexico. Prof. Hanson's public lecture, followed by discussion, is the first in a pair of visits by eminent economists on "The Economics of the Era of Donald Trump," followed by David Card on April 17.

Sponsored by the Ethics and Public Life Program, with support from the Riger-Potash Family Fund. Co-sponsored by the University Lectures Committee.
