Great Decisions: U.S. Trade Policy

Events | Great Decisions

America’s foreign policy tools are not limited to sanctions, treaties or military campaigns – they also include the sales pitch. The logic behind this pitch, or “economic statecraft,” is simple: promote the benefits of democracy and the free market. In so doing, the U.S. will gain valuable and stable partners, both in business and in diplomacy. Now, as China and other emerging nations battle the U.S. for global influence, Secretary Kerry will take the reigns as a free market matchmaker. Join this talk with Doug Badger of the Pacific Northwest International Trade Association.

The 2014 Great Decisions Lecture Series takes place Fridays, January 17 - March 7, 12 p.m. at Portland State University, Science Building 1, Room 107 (1025 SW Mill Street). We are pleased to make this exciting eight-week lecture program free and open to the community, no registration required.
