Adam S. Posen (PIIE)
via Foreign Affairs
The conventional wisdom that the United States has recklessly pursued international economic openness at the expense of workers is profoundly misguided, according to PIIE President Adam S. Posen in a newly published article in Foreign Affairs. The data show that successive US administrations have spent the last two decades trying to insulate the American economy from globalization only to privilege the few in traditional manufacturing jobs while neglecting most low-income Americans. Join a discussion with Posen on his recommendations for the best way forward on April 22 at 1pm ET.
