Economic Policy Institute to host event on 'The China Syndrome'
On Tuesday July 17, 2012, The Economic Policy Institute (EPI) will host a forum on the National Bureau of Economics Research (NBER) paper, The China Syndrome: Local Labor Market Effects of Import Competition in the United States.
Forum participants will discuss the impact that trade with China has on jobs and wages for American workers.
Panelists will include: Gary Burtless, Senior Fellow-Economic Studies, The Brookings Institution; Thea Lee, Deputy Chief of Staff and Economist, AFL-CIO; and Robert Scott, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Research, Economic Policy Institute.
The featured presenter will be David Autor, co-author of the NBER paper, as well as Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Faculty Research Associate with NBER.
Trade with China is a current and pressing issue. As the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) explained last week, trade actions with China are a major election year topic:
The Obama Administration announced today that it was filing a trade case at the WTO regarding China's imposition of duties totaling more than $3 billion on U.S. auto exports.”
